(g/s) …unplugged… (5.11)

…unplugged…

ordered my friend’s book,
might arrive home when I do…
(since I’ve been away…)

hopefully the scheduled posts
have kept my friends entertained

cell phone spotty; no
internet there, where I’ve been –
relaxing unplugged

Love 1
On’t Truth
(a renga)

she found a book by
an author he liked, and placed
it by his pillow…

he found it and asked her where
she found it… ‘charity shop’

so that night they read
when politics aired instead
of a favored show

sight; then sound

too good the mystery
to put
down; so up until after one

beeping voice
rings;
alarm echoes

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.

Just Karma 18 for June 2015 wp

Just Karma 18

Matinee

book, play, movie; same title
all are slightly different.
a local staged production
of ‘Mary Poppins’ brought joy.

The Tanaga is a Filipino poem.
It consists of four lines with seven syllables each; the rhyme scheme is AABB.
Traditional tanagas don’t have titles and are composed in the Tagalog language.
Most have been handed down through oral history and contain proverbs and moral lessons.
(Similar to the tanaga is the ambahan, which has an indefinite length.)

Modern Tanaga
The tanaga has been in danger of becoming a dying art form. The Cultural
Center of the Philippines and the National Commission of the Arts have been
trying to revive it. Several groups have been promoting the form in English.
The form is beginning to change slightly – not only are tanagas appearing in
more frequently in English, they are picking up titles and varying their rhyme
forms (for example, AABB, ABBB, ABAB, ABBA, AAAB, BAAA, ABCD, etc).

Just Karma 10 (plus) for June 2015 wp

Just Karma 10

Yesterday

a full day of rain;
Saturday’s farmer’s market
still held court with food and craft –
explorations few
open a book, puzzles too
til time to sup with the crew

recognizing summer
(bonus haiku)

clear blue sky rises
the solstice announces brightly;
longest day arrives

©JP/dh

A single Sedoka has six lines,
and the syllable count is 5,7,7,5,7,7

Note: Inspirational pieces on Instant Karma
may return with me in July.

Tetractys – it’s another of the short poetry forms; invented by Ray Stebbing it consists of at least 5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20). The Tetractys can be written in more than one verse, but then must each line must be followed by an inverted syllable count (10,4,3,2,1 syllables).
American haiku: The Poetic ‘Lune’ : The form is 3/5/3 words. Jack Collom created this new form of haiku by chance…free from all constraints associated with haiku,…See more info from Wikipedia.
