#Haiku: River’s Edge


-By Linda Lee Lyberg

By the river’s edge

solemn grasses whispering

secrets to the dead.


Linda Lee Lyberg

This is my response to Carpe Diem #1301 River’s Lip

Here is the 19th verse of “The Rubaiyat”, shared by Chèvrefeuille:

And this delightful Herb whose tender Green
Fledges the River’s Lip on which we lean –
Ah, lean upon it lightly! for who knows
From what once lovely Lip it springs unseen!

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
