Haiku Reflections:Humility in the Presence of Nature




Stopped along the trail.

Humbled by this wondrous sight.

The silence,the awe…

These titles are available at all the Amazon sites. When I'm not writing or creating new recipes, I love to knit and crochet; usually with some "help" from feline friend, the yarn-loving Mr. Cheddar! 🐱 With Blogger, I also host my new author's site: Geraldine Helen Hartman and my product review blog: My Real Life Reviews. I hope you will visit often and enjoy all of my sites.😂 Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing You a Happy Week and Namaste!

  1. I would be stopping there, too.

  2. It is a great feeling when one is awestruck by the beauty of nature. I still marvel at so many things I see around me. What a beautiful spot you encountered!

  3. Nature can do that, but we have first to see. Thank you for opening my eyes.

  4. The sights, sounds and scents of Nature can be very humbling! Beautiful haiku!

  5. The last line… ‘the silence, the awe…’ says it all, quite the scene you have shared here. Humility doesn’t do it justice.

  6. So beautiful..awe-inspiring.. I experienced something similar.. do visit to have a look at my 200th post..

  7. And a beautiful sight it is. Great words.

  8. Ye!! ,,,the humbling effect that nature has on man, provided he turns to explore!! Nice one!!

  9. Nature can sure grab your attention and make you realize you are but a speck.

  10. I love this beautiful picture of winter’s nature and why you were moved to poetry.

  11. This poem really touched me. The silence that comes with all that snow is thunderous. I had to stop and really listen to appreciate to the fact that the world was fast in meditation. 🙂

  12. A deep bow in respect upon this entry. For sure nature does force humility upon humankind. Thank you. Please have a good new week.

  15. Beautiful…you ARE right- there is something humbling about an awe-inspiring view- which this totally IS!

  16. Humbling and wondrous to stop, to breath the silence. We feel so less estranged.
