IK 396 for December 2016 wp

IK 396
Balance

Ideas
And ideals
Vary like stars
Burning brilliantly brighter than
Yours

Yours;
Ideas and ideals are
Just as valid
Give them
Chances

bring solid
voice
with each song sung

with bravery
and
confidence

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 Elfje; five line verse of 11 words and
line/syllable count; tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8 and or pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4
are my interpretations of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

Just Karma 188 for September 2016 wp

Just Karma 188
Investments
(mini haibun)

Walking into a nursery school as a grandparent…
brings back some interesting memories.
The fun sing songs, stories and special programs.
Hoping that your own grandchild has fond
comfortable memories of security and love.

how gracious the
generations can be to
count creatively

The teacher had grandparents visit. And then
help little ones with counting their snacks.
Some children had more confidence than others –
Just give them time they were only three years old

Your mind can hold only one thought at a time.
Make it a positive and constructive one.

for 2.13
Feb. 2015

pith adds nothing to
lemonade – measure sweetness
carefully – balance

toss the tension and the fear
embrace confidence; right now.

pith: the white covering that is found under
the skin of oranges, lemons, etc.

Quickly; needed: Is the Answer Blowing in the Wind?

http://redwolfpoems.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/prompt-219-the-world-awakens/
Because just one word can lead to one sentence which evolves…
awakening perhaps into a poem on a blank page.

Quickly; needed: Is the Answer Blowing in the Wind?
(Mid Month Switch Up/ New Routines)
Quickly August Warm Up Words:
http://imprompt.wordpress.com/2014/08/16/quickly-warm-up/
needed = Randolph needed to win the confidence of Calliope.

Is the Answer Blowing in the Wind?

Randolph did not want to be known as Randy.
While his profession of a banker helped him keep a
dignified personal appearance – He had fallen for
the flowerchild, the woman that was Calliope.

As a man of suits and ties and schedules;
Randolph needed to win the confidence of Calliope.
Her name was more than just a steam pipe organ.
Though she was quietly a very proud woman.

Could their two worlds merge? Just what would,
could one man do to loosen the ties that bound him so
tightly to the corporate jungle – He instinctively knew he
could not change her…so he must adjust himself.

C’est la vie : in a ‘sevenling’

http://april4june6.wordpress.com/
Inspired by april4june6 using a new form of the ‘sevenling’
gifted by : http://rlavalette.wordpress.com/ in a comment to my friend
http://nbsmithblog.wordpress.com/ here on this post:
http://nbsmithblog.wordpress.com/2014/07/21/cinquains-trying-a-new-poetry-form/
This is a form I think I should like to visit again. ~J

*C’est la vie

She is seeking to rearrange her life,
love and the art she creates by being
herself breaking out into the world

trusting, growing in confidence,
even tripping along the way – but
getting out of shadows and corners

all this in a small towns in Paris

*That’s life

July Choices 24

In youth being chosen last can cast a pall upon one’s future
Confidence rides that precarious roller coaster of emotions
Once however when true value is assessed, the art of choosing
Becomes a valued asset…a hard knocks’ life lesson
That puts thought first before the deeds or words escape…
