(g) Pouncing (5.1)

Pouncing
(renga)

the new challenge is
continuance of good health
contested by ‘steps’

ten thousand a day for May
more miles are welcome too

from seven to nine
up and down hills and straight paths;
minimum achieved

(g) Stella’s Spring Dig (3.14) wp

Observing 14
Stella’s Spring Dig
(Elfje…)
1)
Nor’easter
Packing its
Punches in inches
Snow’s shut down the
City

(I may or may not add more. Storm “Stella” has arrived!
I’ve been out four about 45 minutes ‘digging’ at around 6:15 am –
it started snowing around 9 pm last night. The snow is about 6” – 8”…in spots.
Surprisingly the street plow has been through – both sides of the road – once already.)

Just Karma 218
(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

©JP/dh 11.22.16

Smaller than haiku: line/syllable count
tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8
pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4

Just Karma 198
Seventy-five Thousand
(Elfje series)

Thousands
Of steps
Can be achieved
Even without leaving one’s
Home

Trick
May be
To not count
Repeated trips up and
Down

And
Going back
And forth the
Full length of one’s
Abode

ik 173 for August 2015 wp

ik 173
(an Elfje)
On the Town

Up
The hills
To walk down
The twisty Lombard,
Then ride a Cable
Car

(To ride almost the full length, back to where we started)

*
Inspired by: Explore what you like to do.
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.

Just Karma 7 for June 2015 wp

Just Karma 7

Around Town

the small town awaits
up steps, over the plaza
down steps and around corners
sleepy little thing
most doors will open at ten
some just a tad earlier

©JP/dh

A single Sedoka has six lines,
and the syllable count is 5,7,7,5,7,7

Note: Inspirational pieces on Instant Karma
may return with me in July
