Lovely haiku… so meaningful and respectful to the old times. I would like to re-blog this post…it is striking and lovely in its simplicity. “Race of the traveler’s heart…” indeed! My poor heart is pounding like mad, but alas, not going anywhere any time soon. Thanks Carol!
Drums beating with wind
Dry crisp air carrying sage
Hear the constant hum
