#Haiku: Rose of Dawn


-By Linda Lee Lyberg

Rosy dawn tendrils

Swirling in amethyst skies

Daybreak sipping wine.

Author’s Note: This is my response to Carpe Diem #1296 Dawn’s Left Hand

Chèvrefeuille presented to us this month The Rubaiyat, by Omar Khayyam and today’s episode is called ‘dawn’s left hand’, from the 2nd quatrain of The Rubaiyat:

Dreaming when Dawn’s Left Hand was in the Sky
I heard a Voice within the Tavern cry,
“Awake, my Little ones, and fill the Cup
Before Life’s Liquor in its Cup be dry.”

Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
