One Deep Breath - Stillness/Calm/Haiku


Just before I sleep
darkness cradles my mind
whispered prayers released


Just before sunrise
birds singing to peaking sun
moist air fills senses


Quiet stills my mind
sleeping dog curled up at feet
book and tea at hand

I admire your ability to write beautiful verses while you are feeling poorly.
The first on Caressed my mind with it's soothing beauty.

Wonderful images, around here it would be a "sleeping cat with claws in lap" that insures the quiet of a book and tea.

Great haiku and the photograph is beautiful! I like the last one the best. Those are the best kind of mornings. I wrote a haiku similar to your second one. It was what I felt walking my dog early one morning.
