Shuukan - Meander - July 15, 2014

Today for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai  Shuukan... we'll meander!  An interesting word meander ... to sort of walk around without any special goal in site.  Not an easy prompt!  Here's a haiku by Shashi to give us a little "orientation" of at least one of  the meanings of the word:

meandering in dark
forest of senses, souls walk
with karmic baggage

© Shashi S
In the sense of the spiritual the journey of life, Shashi walks through the dark forest of  the senses carrying his karmic baggage, as do we all ... a beautiful inspirational haiku!


under tears of leaves
 meandering pathways
the coo-coo calls


meandering path
through the autumn leaves winding
towards winter dreams


  1. These are beautiful - and I loved seeing a haiku by a poet who isn't very well-known -- so thank you.
    It does seem like the trees are crying, doesn't it?

  2. I loved the image of crying leaves so I'm particulary happy you commented it - and I agree it's nice to see a less famous poet! I'm glad you enjoyed the haiku. Hugs

  3. i loved the image of the pathways leading to the winter dreams...nice haiku! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :-)

  4. My old willow seems to cry all the time - so soon after blooming, if it is too hot the yellow leaves like giant tears fall at the touch of a slight breeze.

  5. Ah ... I know what you mean about willows. We've got quite a few along the lake front .. the do really look as though they weep. Thanks Jules for dropping in, been a pleasure to see you.

  6. You have found your spiritual path through the forest ... autumn is the season to do that ''letting go the things you have troubles with ... '' As the trees let go their leaves ...

  7. I think you're right here. The autumn is my favorite season as well, I much prefer it to crazy spring!


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
