Pink Halo


pink halo of sun

on the railway horizon –

to happiness


This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem #621, first light, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.

  1. A beautiful observation of the morning sun 🙂

    And — happiness in being on the rails — happiness in going away — the final line has the feel of a toast: “cheers! here’s to beginnings!”

    But — that’s just my take. o.O

    • And that was my take, as well 😉 I quite liked the fact that the last line could be read as a destination or simply as an acknowledgement of happiness as a hypothetical idea 😀

      • You always give us so many layers — graceful ambiguities and loose ends — images that leave you thinking afterwards.

        [quite envious here!]
