To Unseen Owls and Hollow Reeds   Leave a comment

 
 
Sun and Marsh
 
 

 

Gratitude to marshy sponge for softening Sun’s nightly plunge

Gratitude to the hand holding mine when old bygones refuse to die

Gratitude to the unseen owl whose single note is a temple bell

Gratitude to limber limbs for riding fierce flow of ice and wind

Gratitude to hollow reeds, singing Sun aloft again

I walk to the tree planted by people

For its shade and its flourish near old walls of learning

Where hurries and worries bypass its message:

     Offer your moment, your heart-work of beauty

     Give and live freely, see and be fully. 

Yes.

Which haiku says it best? Let me know!

 
Hopscotching shadows
Autumn-green grass, crooked fence
Make light of the day
 

Tic-tac-toe

 
Lines of tic-tac-toe
Autumn-green grass, crooked fence
Playing with shadows

Golden Ginkgo

Ablaze in the blue
Fanned by winds from distant home

Subtle headlands

Wash of morning mist

Hills and seaweed, now cloud banks

What the Tree Knows   2 comments

Shore and Sky

No roots, no grasping

At home on changing shore of

Infinite edges

chair and window

Where brilliant branches
two trilling hummingbirds and
hot tea are enough
