…tangled bedclothes…
(haiku, tau ku, Elfje, pi ku)

why do we insist
those visions streaming while blind
with sleep have meaning

especially nightmares
warnings,
omens of dreaded foreboding

Wake!
Be free
Of wrestled ideals
That try to advertise
Importance

allow light –
calm
dawning to break

(g) mixed short verse/ Paces (9.3)

Paces
(pi ku, Elfje, tau ku, Elfje, haiku/haibun)

neighborly
we
compare stories

Of
The fences
We need to
Build for our own
Protection

from the few who will not
play fair
ignoring moral grounds –

Finally
Stop their
Foul play when
The tables get turned
Around

willow bending teaches
tolerance, aids survival;
even with blind eyes
