ik 217
(Jorio/ Joria-haibun/tanka)
hatching

all scrabbling for safety
or food; all of
the little eggs on
the kale hatch silently

a mass exodus
the explosion of creatures;
the first instar stage

all around a least
two larger well camouflaged
green caterpillars who happily
munch my gardens’ kale

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.

  1. I like the idea of creating stories or little poems as odes to creatures and bugs, Jules. This one sounded upbeat and not like you were mad at them for nibbling on your kale leaves.
