The calm of the woods

Guards the shrine sanctuary

Where prayers are heard

  1. Oh my, how lovely. You took me there … Thanks

  2. Lived in Miami most of my life. Contemplating moving to Greensboro, NC to appreciate
    “woods” and that whole geographic environment.

      Greensboro? When I was a high school student, I joined a pen pal club and soon received a letter from a boy named Donald, who said he was living in Greensboro. I was very excited as it was the first letter I had ever received from abroad. He enclosed a photo in the letter. It was of himself taken in front of a big white car. He said it was his car. Japan was then still struggling to recover from the war devastation and a car was such a luxury that only very privileged people could own. I couldn’t believe a high school student was driving a car as his own in the US. The name Greensboro then firmly burned on my mind.

  3. I like your haikus a lot.
    I try to imagine the woods you are imagining in this poem.
    Thanks for the beauty you share in the blogosphere.

      I’m really glad if you like my haiku poems. Here a shrine usually surrounds itself with woods for quietness. Nowadays, of course, many of them can’t afford big enough land for it.
