BE32: course work?

energy, water
thoughts, like the air within us
and around us flow

create your own music with
all that you can reach, evolve

become fluent and
accept peace that is within
your reach; emerge free

Flow

All things great and small flow and grow
and follow their own destiny.

for May 2015

Elfje and haiku :
Golf with your Dad

sports
with family
can be fun
I golf with my
hubby
*
small round white balls roll
into tiny holes on greens –
walking with long sticks

calling ‘fore’ to warn others
of our errant shots – we laugh

just for our pleasure
no stress, we drive and putter
‘par’ for our course.
**
*
Inspired by: Golf with your Dad
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer
8,879 ways to give yourself and others
good fortune right now.
*
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.

1sojournal list: Courageous Terrapin

Courageous Terrapin

There be no dragons as she
conquered her souls course –
What need was there of a compass
when escaping the padded existence
that was someone else’s definition?
No lock would hold her, as she sailed
over the edge…Even as she hides so
cleverly in her space, she may wonder
what will become of her …or not…

After all just how big is one
large turtles’ brain. While I in
deepening panic mode searched,
tearing apart my laundry room?
The net covering of her tank which
had proven sufficient for so long –
was no match for her determination.
Discovering her escape, I wondered
if she had even survived the fall…

She did. I picked her up,
washed her off, while speaking
soothing words – like ‘Silly turtle,
you did have me worried –
Thank goodness you are OK!’
I think her companion was happy
to have his friend back…
Though I suspect it was with his aide,
stepping on his back that she, fled.
