rising sun obscured

rising sun obscured

rising sun obscured
hidden by gray clouds at dawn
cock crowing in vain

This haiku is my second response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #27 Use That Quote: rising sun, which offers the following quote by René Daumal, from Mount Analogue:

“The cock crowing in the milky dawn thinks its call raises the sun; the child howling in a closed room thinks its cries open the door. But the sun and the mother go their own way, following the laws of their beings. Those who see us, even though we cannot see ourselves, opened the door for us, answering our puerile calculations, our unsteady desires, and our awkward efforts with a generous welcome.”
