Haiku Tuesday: The Morning Glory!

Summer Morning by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


Ah! the morning glory!

’Tis not my friend, either.

There Is A Harmony In Autumn

Autumn by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


There is harmony in autumn, and a luster in the sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!


Percy Bysshe Shelley


Throwback Thursday: Sydney

Sydney by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


To think this was my view from my daily commute train a few years ago! Gah, I miss Sydney soooo much; it’s like a part of me is missing, left behind there. Hence I left my heart in Sydney blues post.

I’m yet to find one single person that’s been in Sydney and didn’t like it. As soon as you find out that someone’s been in Australia, you’ve got yourself a new friend.


Haiku Tuesday: Worshipping at the Great Ise Shrines

Flowers & Woods by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


I cannot tell what the flowers it came from,

But an unnameable fragrance filled me.

Delicious Autumn

Autumn by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.


George Eliot


Now Autumn’s Fire Burns Slowly

Autumn by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.


William Allingham


Haiku Tuesday: Fallen Leaves

Fallen Leaves by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


In his absence the god’s garden

Is neglected, dead leaves piling.


by Basho

Autumn Is A Second Spring

Autumn Leaves by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.


Albert Camus


October Maple Tree

Autumn Leaves by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


In October, a maple tree before your window lights up your room like a great lamp. Even on cloudy days, its presence helps to dispel the gloom.


John Burroughs


October Is The Fallen Leaf

Autumn Leaves by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com


October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again.


Hal Borland


Haiku Tuesday: Nightingales

336A8376


The nightingales are singing sweet

Behind willows, before the grove.


by Basho

Translation by Asataro Miyamori


All things on earth point home in old October

336A9912


All things on earth point home in old October; sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken.


Thomas Wolfe
