disentangled

in autumn, here the
nests become empty homes
to those who migrate
birds flocking, flying south

some birds stay all year
but when a strong wind blows, they
rebuild fallen nests

I found a nest;
mud, twigs, pine needles
belonging to a robin?
dislodged from an oak

transfigure

dreamscapes, dream escapes parade
through the chilling night
haunting visions replay dismay
reach through for dawn

symbols, cymbals crash
behind a dreamers closed eyes
fall dawn arrives …late

gather candles, dispel shadows
flip on light switches
let the dew wash
over your sleepy face

*reasonably civilized

let a library be
a copse for imagination
let ichor flow through
your active atavistic veins

exhale infected
menace, through your warm pastel
thin cranberry blood

figure education life long
let your bony cranium
expand as an opening
door; eliminate nebulous thought

dinner delights with family
got to meet up
with him and her
and compare our stories

complex as life is
making time for family
brings us together

Just Karma 27 for September 2015 wp

Just Karma 27
(Jorio/ Joria-haibun)

the small brown cowbird
lays her egg in
another nest to be
raised by another avian

that little spotted
egg shell I found, hadn’t hatched –
taught me a lesson

nature has unique ways
for some of her
creatures to survive – though
sometimes they do not

Yes they are related to the Old World cuckoos

a door, ajar

I could have, but
I let him, get
the stuff that removes
the squeak from hinges

so Little Miss can
rest without the squeak that was
coming from the door…

Just Karma 26
(Jorio/ Joria-haibun)

through the backyard jungle
(needs mowing this weekend)
the sun shines through –
muddy creek fishbowl bottom…

we see a school of
fish munching on the algae
– skip tossing in stones

Little Miss and I
(high step, leaf crunch)
back to the house
for our own lunch
