Ancient Voices (Haiku)

Ancient Rome


Navigating time
Wisdom etched upon granite
Whispering relics

Remembering them
Speaking truth beyond the grave
Words without voices

Their thoughts rejected
Conquering the land, alone
History repeats

This haiku trio was written for the prompt at Carpe Diem Prompt #267

    It takes great skill to hear the words without voices.

    When the Old One Speaks

  2. Oh those ancient voices speaking through the relics… and the mistakes we allways repeat.

    I especially adore the first two haiku and the amazing photo so rich in ancient history!

  4. Wonderfully composed trio of haiku Gene … and I surely can read those Ancient (and Silent) Voices in your haiku. That 2nd is my favorite … brings memories to me … only good memories by the way 🙂
