Whirl Winding

Beginning
Again; another
Journey – with a
Day ahead to visit
Museums…

Early
Flight means
Early rising; closer
to the airport – less
Traveling

Travel
Days always
Seem longer than
They really are… to
Me

Graphemes

Every beginning
An ending arrives

A grapheme is the smallest unit used in describing the writing system of any
given language, originally coined by analogy with the phoneme of spoken
languages. A grapheme may or may not carry meaning by itself, and may or
may not correspond to a single phoneme (… any of the perceptually distinct
units of sound in a specified language that distinguish one word from another,
for example p, b, d, and t in the English words pad, pat, bad, and bat.

(With quotes by famous folks
Whose last names start with the alphabet
Or at least have those ‘tricky letters’ –
U, Q, X & Y in them)

Just Karma 42 for November 2015 wp

Just Karma 42
(Collom Lune trio)
a different beginning

lingering sunset stretches
pale pink, orange to blue
the painted sky
*
universal treasures seen
as the day draws itself
to a close
*
not quite full
November moon has a halo
of rainbow hue

http://earthsky.org/space/what-makes-a-halo-around-the-moon &
if you Google search images for double and triple halos around the moon
go to the images and the 11th line 5th from the left there is a photo by
Sergio Montifur – that is the closest to what I saw
The moon though was not full November 23, 2015 around 7:30 pm

Jack Collom Lune: The form is 3/5/3 words.

ik 258 for November 2015 wp

ik 258
(Collom Lune series)
extensions?

an olive branch
without leaves is still an
offered olive branch

a postal card
with only a message carries;
carries a message

Leaves and illustrations
are adornments that would, could
be nice additions

taking single steps
is a start, a beginning
to a future

where peace reigns
and maybe even eventually an
embrace is allowed

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.

Evolution (Mine) 1.2.15 (three prompts)

Evolution (Mine) 1.2.15

Evolution (Mine)

I used to be one of the crowd
watching every burst of color
as the magical clock struck twelve

I used to also stay up ‘late’ listening
to orchestrated POPs concerts and
watching televised fireworks colorfully burst

I used to gather with family
we would play penny poker waiting to
clink, drink from plastic flutes, and kiss

I used to watch that hour hand creep
I used to watch the minute hand wiggle
I used to watch the second hand tick, tick, tick

Then I evolved into one of those folks who
didn’t stay up late, glad to be home safe – let the clock
tock as I slept… zzz, wake into the New Year

one mans’ beginning
the New Year – starts with
each sun rise or set…

10.25 …the beginning…

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/10/carpe-diem-589-zentsu-ji-february-march.html

10.25 …the beginning…

swept in a pile
willow, chestnut, maple, oak
child sees fallen leaves

yet does not understand death;
the beginning of her life

she repeats ‘surprise’
in the joy of her playing
crushing, tossing; leaves
