sun within


As part of Carpe-Diem Challenge this month, we were given a track by Karunesh.

Karunesh is a German-born new age ambient musician. His music has strong Indian, Middle-Eastern, African, Australian, Native  American influences.

Loved listening to the music. Heard it again and again to feel every chord. It felt so Indian,  it was easy to relate to every beat. A big thanks to Chèvrefeuille for bringing Karunesh’s music here.

The track is from Karunesh’ latest album “Sun Within” (2016) and this is what he says about this album:

[…] “Everybody is different and everybody is unique – yet we are all connected. We are connected through the same source, the source of existence. We can get in touch with our inner self through stillness and meditation, dance and celebration. Just be yourself and let your inner light – the Sun Within – shine and lead you on your way.” […] (Source:

Based on the track, I wrote the below 4 Haikus. 


Bells… soft melody-
One by One, gently chime, PEACE∼
Tired! Every dune crossed…

Pilgrim lone, in search-
Loud, louder, the bells are near∼
Rapid, a  heart beats…

Carved in giant rock,
Face of pure bliss. Restless I-
Stunned, Still, Silent, TRANCE…

Shout, scream, sing, madness…
Dance in abandonment,
Frenzy, ECSTASY.
