like translucent silk
misty moistness of her eyes
whispered to his heart
The prompt this time at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai was inspired by a short ‘story ‘ or parable written by Khalil (or Kahlil) Gibran. The story is impregnated with deep wisdom but I could not resist myself to seek my inspiration from one of my favourite poems by Kahlil , A Lover’s Call XXVII , especially by the lines :
Do you recollect our sitting in the shade of the
Branches, sheltering ourselves from Humanity, as the ribs
Protect the divine secret of the heart from injury?
Remember you the trails and forest we walked, with hands
Joined, and our heads leaning against each other, as if
We were hiding ourselves within ourselves?
