understatement

poetry
just is
a part of
who I am, like
breathing

Inspired by: Write poetry as an
exercise of self-discovery.

good fortune right now.

Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Note: my haiku (or other forms) are my interpretations
or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

window shopping is
affordable and allows
for comparison

though too many places now
no longer hold stock in store

so we will just have
to keep looking locally
rather than from ‘air’

(renga as I was taught)
in concert

in the evening
I out the darkened window
watching the silence

home hums, fades – then crickets chirp
cicadas sing, bull frogs call

distant traffic drones
and the lone train whistle joins
the rustling trees

Inspired by: Each day, pause to do layered listening –
the loudest, obvious sounds and then the next layer down, etc.

driven?

our plans are revised;
our family vacation
with less travel time

still a count of eight going
the destination; closer

we’ll have our own car,
our own room; ‘she’ll’ be making
the reservations

Pleiades
slow and steady

start at the beginning
simplify your actions
sing, hum merry tunes
sort, give, gift, toss away
success sometimes seems far
section, divide large tasks
savor accomplishments
