Lonely: Carpe Diem Haiku

In response to Carpe Diem Haiku  Crossroads#1

Lonely by seaside
Cold tears of separation
Deathly calm engulfs


Far out in the sea
Tears merged on the horizon
Seagulls fall silent

Goal of Carpe Diem Crossroads Haiku as explained in Carpe Diem Crossroads Introduction is “Imagine you are on a crossroad were two haiku come together. The haiku “have a conversation” and “decide” to become one. Together the create a symbiosis of a new haiku.”

As the sun came up over the Ganga river ( River Ganges ) on the morning of December 18, 2017 as I was walking the ghats in Varanasi, the sky was covered by a flock of birds ( seagulls ) and nearly covered the rising sun.  I had a split second opening to take this photo.

To greet the
Rising sun

Embraces all
Even the sun
On her riverbed
