Himalayan Souvenir~

kumaon2 155

clouds disperse at dawn

the sun gleams off its features

gilds the peaks beyond

One experiences a special emotion in these remote mountains. Recently, I went on a trip to Kausani, in Uttrakhand, India with my family and saw some spectacular display of ‘Sunrise’ on the eastern horizon.

A misty dawn painted the glacier-fed mountains with gold and purple pigments..one moment the ridges had hardly any color-then, the sun emerged, bringing a subtle alchemy of light..

Tan Renga Challenge~#59

mystic purple flames

arise from the spirit’s stalks

chill my autumn heart

– As part of http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.in/2014/11/carpe-diem-tan-renga-challenge-59.html

I  conclude with 7-7 syllable response….!!

voice rings in me like a bell

dissolves worries, makes god real

Thanks Kristjaan for choosing my haiku for Tan Renga this time. Completely gratified :)
