Out to the Inn…

Busy week
Leading up to
A short weekend away
While he works…
I’ll walk about
And maybe even play

Grands and errands
Were the demands
And now summer’s begun
Time for some fun

Even through
The morning rain
The cardinal bird appreciates
That I’ve filled the feeder full
– Other fledglings still think
My garden strings come at free rates

Maybe after chapter of mystery book
Or two I’ll pick up a pen and look
– Observe my surroundings and jot
Down a poem or simple plot…
*
(Adieu, adieu, to you
and you and you…
Until around the bend
I’m home again…)

With thunderstorm
Threats and actual
Pounding rain – hours spent
Waiting

Snacks and
A mystery book –
Hours later; a lighter

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

(tau ku, pi ku pair)

sight; then sound

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

beeping voice
rings;
alarm echoes

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.

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

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).
