…enjoying summer 12

the nutgrass is… growing at
a different rate

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…

Shy Garden Friend

Warm
Enough for
The garden snake
To cross the yard –
Twice

Could
Have been
Two different garden
Crawlers; one by the
Woodstack

The
Other by
The gully’s ivy;
Perhaps t’was the same
Snake?

Keyed Up
(a haibun)

There is a different world alive
when walking in the morning.
This dawn almost autumn
hanging on to summers’ skirts –
white chiffon on eggshell blue sky.

Almost oppressive even before eight.
Yet there are bugs and blooms.
And a few people watering, walking,
riding to errands or work on this Saturday…
the second to the last of this season.

peace is disturbed by
the door opening, your class –
you thought was, is not

Tao soul?
(Collom Lune series)

nice when some
smile at the effort you expend;
give yourself credit

recognize the individual
that you are; allow yourself
to be different

redirect the negative
far away from your being;
allow light in

Inspired by: Practice self-acceptance.
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.

(three 3,5,3 haiku series)

visiting
the library on
a Wednesday

different
routine; we find three
new playgrounds

visiting
two; we will explore
‘three’; next week

(a summary of yesterday)

Note: I have not been to the new parks systems by our ‘new’ library
in about twenty years – the whole inter connection of roads has changed.
What was once a straight road through, passed a small local golf course
and roller skating rink. Has become a maze filled with multiple
opportunities for play and recreation.
