ik 119
for May 2015

haiku and Septolet:
Simply Soak Up the Day

enjoy the sun, the breeze,
company of family
stars and fireflies
*
unofficial start
of summer
begins when
evening glitters

soaked –
the day’s heat
unevenly blink
*

Inspired by: Simply soak up the day.
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer
8,879 ways to give yourself and others
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.

Septolet: fourteen words in two verses which
do not have to be evenly split.

  1. It’s funny how the stars do seem to be blinking differently when it’s really hot out – at night. A different dance beat 😉

    • Not sure if it is because I am by a water source, but soon the few lightning bugs will become so massive that the trees look like they are strung with blinking lights from the bottom to top! Different composition, but the cute buggies are like small stars 😉

      • That’s wayyyy cooool!
        An entirely new set of twinkle lights that perform to their own beats – quite the show then – lucky you 😀

        did you know – the females are vicious – they attract the males – mate – then kill them right off – or they slowly die, within hours, incapable of mating again or surviving – their “job” done! LoL – nasty business for such lovely little spritely creatures 😀

          • LOL – yeah, another species that seems to know what’s what – according to them – and goes about their business.

            A few years ago, we had a praying mantis who was a regular here – she was gorgeous!

            • One of my son’s tried to rescue a hurt one a few years back.
              And when they were little my guys found a small one that I let them feed and play with for a week! Smart critter.

              • They are really wonderful – and it’s a shame so many think they evil. They may be odd looking – but the more beautiful for it 🙂
