dodoitsu/haibun
relative humility

hyenas will laugh long at
everything including your
successes but not at their
own misstep failures

lovely how it is
always my fault when your plans
falter – who laughs 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

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.

“Dodoitsu is a form of Japanese poetry developed towards the end of the Edo Period.
Often concerning love or work, and usually comical,
Dodoitsu poems consist of four lines
with the syllabic structure 7-7-7-5 and no rhyme or metre.”

  1. Hmm…. the lingering bitter after-taste suddenly shifts to one of sudden neutrality, with a just a hint of vanilla – to keep the taste pure – clean. No point in sugar coating it – then the hyenas will simply refuse to accept the jackass role 😉

    Well done and glad that there is therapy in all of this …. write write to your heart’s delight and content ye selfe with olde memories of sustenance supped with ales and pitch – ers – as laughter stitched a tapestry of eloquently elegant colours true blue ….

    sorry – I’m ranting in slight tiredness and I have Shakespeare on my mind … can’t shake him; out out damned ghostly visions 😉

      • roflmao …. okay …. we need some one to yell “Cut” … or did we perchance injest (?!) .. ingest …. some odd fungi along the roads to Grandma’s house?!

        LOL XD

          • Oh, just for future reference…
            (Well you may have figured out by now that I can’t spell anyway…before or after consumption of such.)
            There is no ‘h’ in Lemoncello.
            (The auto spell check doesn’t like either version but the label on the bottle ought to be correct – you think?)
            :X
