All still and pleasant

My mind is empty, peaceful

Time stops in the now.

The embers burn out

Left to smoulder one spark left

Season’s flame subdued.

When Evil seeps in

The wicked becomes mundane

Closed eyes just cause pain.

Nothing grows at all
Bare are the hot sands of time
Yet hidden Nature
Lost in the haze has rebirth
Slim chance yet hope for the Earth.

Traveling through this life
Lost in a barren Valley
Love can peak your soul

This is my entry for Ronovanwrites Weekly Haiku Challenge.

To fight for my life

With raw hunger I will strike

I strike out at life

Hunger is the only way

I cheated skittle and did a Haiku and a Tanka.

Nature draws a wide

Compass her palate is huge

Her colours every hue

With only the stars

To guide, man used the old ways

Travelling was an art

No compass yet discovered

Stars by night and sun by day.
