RonovanWrites Haiku Challenge 189 with prompt words – zen, noise



The word “Zen” is derived from the Sanskrit word “dhyana” which means “meditation”. Its root meaning is “to see, to observe, to look”.

As I understand it, Zen involves seeing the true nature of things, not illusion. A state of being integrated in body, mind and spirit.

The last line of the haiku is my attempt at representing Zen.


Cacophony rings
Birds’ flight amidst shattered peace

Sun shines, river flow.
