(g) OctaTimbre/ Another Fall Observation (10.22)

Another Fall Observation
(OctaTimbre – eight words per ten lines)

You wonder sometimes if people are paying attention
Especially when you have to show your identification
Which I did several times this past week
Only one person wished me an early greeting
For my natal day anniversary; mile or millstone?
While the seasons may be changing, I wonder
How much have I? …in my own autumn
Far from my final winter – so I hope.
Daylight decreases, anxiety does not have to increase
As I plod along as I always have…

(g) Finally, Spring? (3.20) wp

Observing 20
Finally, Spring?
(haibun-type with Elfje)

Six twenty-eight this morning was the official time;
however Spring may be delayed as Winter hangs
on to the petticoat of warm hopes, like a child clinging
securely to their mother not wanting to let go for
fear of being forgotten, not ready to move forward.

Winters’
Tight grip
Seeks attention as
Mother Nature moves towards
Spring

recess?
(Collom Lune series & haiku)

there arrives moments
when the light in one’s
attic is bright

we can do,
be anything or just chill
without any explanations

our obligations fulfilled
we can jump, dance or
read a book
*
a cultivated
or wild rose awaits your time,
attention and nose

Just Karma 47 for December 2015 wp

Just Karma 47
heading north

blue dawn cracked
a convergence of crows
and their black wings

boisterously announcing
their passage unconcerned
about eavesdroppers

crackle and cackle
demanding attention, waking
everyone this morning

ik 39
for 3.4 March 2015

certain things can wait

.(dishes in the sink)

people need attention first

.(little ones grow fast)

leave perfection be

.(all things have beauty)

let nature show you perfect
forms which have dimples and flaws

each life progresses

.(in each season)

do what you can – assist

.(feed the birds)

but enjoy the ride

.(love life daily)
