…pilgrims all… 11.27

…pilgrims all…
(11.27 : CD 613)

solace in the meal
familia faces round
the table; give thanks

pilgrims all seeking comfort
sharing different branches

giving thanks round the
table set with various
traditions and love

11.26 …deepest marrow… CD GW 35

11.26 …deepest marrow… CD GW 35

November breath
and breadth chills to the
deepest marrow

autumns’ colors fell; bare are
fields, trees; the heart warming sun

11.25 …each illuminating…

11.25 …each illuminating… CD 612 lantern

dotting the shore
each one unique; lighthouses
large lanterns

unlike its smaller cousin -
guiding ships to safe harbor

small lanterns
each illuminating one
small piece of pathway

unlike its larger cousin -
guiding ships to safe harbor

soft glow in the dark
grows strong as we get closer
points to Nirvana…

11.24 ….to dreamland gone… CD 611

11.24 ….to dreamland gone… CD 611

once home safe;
the family that gathered -
she let the sky fall

in-laws, siblings
cousins, couples, babes
to dreamland gone

when the wind
from corners warm brought
rain instead of snow

©JP/dh

Note: unseasonably warm last night.
And even into this morning: 62 F or 16.6
Much better that the 16 F or -6.6 last week.

11.23 …touche…

11.23 …touche… CD 610

every Thanksgiving
the table transforms; faces, plates
location and time

some will not return
how can we tell them that we
believe they are here

the young ones fidget
unable to comprehend
the important dance

as they learn to jump
try to defy gravity
with all of their might

yet they are thankful
to be caught by loving arms
before reaching ground

11.22 …dolled up… Sparkling Stars

11.22 …dolled up… Sparkling Stars 13/ CD

(haiku series)

Lucy and Ricky
separate beds – for TV
different dolls they

generational
to be so separated
or just for TV

where was compassion
to be so scrutinized and
expected to live

always dolled up for
many cameras, judged by
magnifying glass

nothing left to guess
imagination, caution
tossed into the wind

©JP/dh

Note : my first thoughts were of the TV show ‘I Love Lucy’
Perhaps not at all in the theme of the prompt but I ran with it.
Thinking of really any actors so much in the ‘limelight’ that they
have no privacy. Different public ‘Dolls’.
