(g) different flights (5.18)

different flights

empty bird-feeder
refilled after days away;
did the birds miss me?

Note: You know that saying ‘I need a vacation from my vacation’…
now to empty suitcases and do mounds of laundry…

recognition

when treatment takes away
from you –
remind yourself of what is left

those extra days
you
have to live

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.

ik 133 for June 2015 wp

ik 133
for June 2015 Tetractys and Collum Lune
Incompete

for
days and
daze I sat
doing nothing
and it seems the problem resolved itself

perhaps not completely, but just enough
that dour dreams might
might be kept
away
-sigh-
*
why do plans
change, get rearranged; she hasn’t
got the answer
*
the French incompete translates to English as assessment

Inspired by: Sometimes the highest form of action is
inaction – Jerry Brown.

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.

Mindful 18

Winter can do that – mix up our days and nights
Even when living alone in a community …
Time for breakfast, forgetting just hours ago
That companionship was shared at the dinner table.
All dressed up waiting for the shuttle – almost ninety
The security guard reminds the elder resident
Not once but twice that there will be no rides at this
Evening hour…

Aging can do that – mixing up our memories
Entering the more comfortable ones from the past
Into the future so one can hear the voices of those
That have been loved bringing them closer.
All dressed up, bag with medications, oxygen tank
Almost ninety…slowly letting go, depending on
Our children as once they depended on us at this
Evening hour…
