Elfje and haiku :
Golf with your Dad

sports
with family
can be fun
I golf with my
hubby
*
small round white balls roll
into tiny holes on greens –
walking with long sticks

calling ‘fore’ to warn others
of our errant shots – we laugh

just for our pleasure
no stress, we drive and putter
‘par’ for our course.

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.

See Poetry in Everything

poems
they are
in every breath
both in and out
see

dawn, dusk, sun, moon, life
nature, nurture; all between –
spirit sings in ink

Elfje and haiku :
Walk Tall

walk
straight, true
head held high
melting the miles of
day
*
nine small miles addressed
may seem like a scant distance
when happily done

when successfully achieved
where all the goals that were set
*

Elfje and haiku : Wake up!
Wake Up!

open
your eyes
when you wake
enjoy the birdsong of
spring
*
even
at dusk
some wake after
day sleeping to find
stars
*
oft we do wonder
sleepwalking believing that
we are wide awake

for April 2015

relax, breathe, you are
just as you should be – talent
flows from your kind acts

book learning, crafts, professions –
just someone’s labels

every hat you wear
is beautiful – remember
who you are, and breathe
