yesterday and this morning

five fleeting seconds…
to see the heron landing
long strides to shelter?

the wooded area, there
at the end of the backyard

or to hunt rising
waters of the gully, there
swelled with summer rain
*
Dill?
Who knew –
Swallowtail caterpillars; two
Dining on its’ floral

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.

summer sliced and diced

In the still heavy
air of summer broken by
insects buzzing – rest

close your mouth, open your ears
and please do nurture nature

The clock is ticking
The motors hum, mum, humming
Dreams mumble, whisper

a good void

sorting through boxes
empty binders here, paper
there, bag magazines…

rebox the books; recycle,
shift the weight, until they’re gone
*
sorting through my thoughts
empty the negative and
gain freedoms’ relief

Just Karma 140 for July 2016 b

immaterial reference

who wants old text books
outdated pages – data;
bound information

a company bought and sold –
once solid technology…

bound information
left decomposing; in boxes –
who wants old text books

resonance

lazy white clouds scuttle
across a blue atmosphere;
seen through green tree leaves

taming the junk and antiques
more floor space and ground is found

papers from years past
become stray musical chords
for the earth to play

fallen fruit
(a mini haibun)

Most of my pacing was back and forth to the clothes line.
Or to the porch or the extra bedrooms where the chicks
used to roost…where quite a bit of an odd memory or craft
supply is stored to sort through what is and what will be
recycled or just for lack of any other use or purpose – pitched
All that before and during the two storms, the second doing
some overnight disarray to the garden potted on the driveway…

a few peppers and
one green tomato taken
in too early

older, wiser?
(a mini haibun)

A few morning errands, pacing ourselves in the heat.
The stock on the shelves, not there…all bought up.
So we head home in a different direction to stop at
the new antique shop that’s been open for a while –
while I oohed and aahed at the displays on two floors
in rooms tucked here and there; I left empty handed.
Well that’s not entirely true, I left holding his…

by pausing for me,
he melted my heart; my love
grows as the years pass
