Playing the Game?
(tau ku, pi ku, Septolet)

course change ahead, rough seas?
maybe?
just some seasonal diversion…
~
tiptoe through
dreams
built through the years
~
Successful thoughts
Lace and strengthen
Intuition …
Positive visualization

Distance and
Time can
Be friends

Game Sky
(haibun Elfje)

During my morning walk
I spy the hawk chasing
A vulture away.

I did not realize how much
Bigger the vulture was…
Out of the two birds of prey

There up on Pheasant Hill
I can only wonder if
Any pheasants remain…

*****
Who
Will dominate
The September sky?
Two vultures, one hawk –
Soar

Note: actually no pheasants remain because a few years back there was
an avian flu of some kind which more or less wiped them out. There are plenty
of small critters up in the woods on the hill – I’m sure enough for all the large birds…

Also note: I went and looked at silhouettes both birds and they don’t look all that different to me.
But the hawk seemed twice as small, maybe it was a juvenile.

The Numbers Game

Everything
Is in
The recorded statistics
Is that a bit
Sadistic….

Occasionally
One likes
To just sit
That is very silently
Still

Slow
Breaths with
Closed eyes to
Just hear perhaps absolutely
Nothing

Ik 371 for June 2016 wp

Ik 371
bask in beauty
(*a renga)

when being forced to
play another persons game;
understand the rules

set aside false shame that drags
the joy from your own living

eliminate rage
especially when your heart
wants two champions

©JP/dh

Inspired by: Refuse to feel humiliation.
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.

(*renga as I learned – two haiku of 5,7,5 with a middle segment of two lines of 7 syllables.)

Just Karma 29 for October 2015 wp

Just Karma 29
(free verse/ Elfje/ free verse)

silence is said to be golden.
understanding yours is puzzling –
understanding you is puzzling –
do you think I am heartless
because I enjoy silence?

did
you know
that in this
game of tag – you’re
‘it’

no news is said to be good…and
you do know where to find me.
I’m not hiding from your or your friends,
silence doesn’t have to have a color –
silence can be peaceful.

Saturday Morning

a haibun:
Saturday Morning

the game is afoot in dreamland as the evolution flows
from escapes from odd buildings, and old toys to comfort
children while traveling – too not enough turkey …on the list;
go to market after going to work and the spinning of rearranging
tables and chairs – moving evidence or evidently stuff that was
left – it’s all a mystery blending TV shows, real jobs, detectives,
crimes and lunch breaks…too many turning themselves in – the
babbling of sequels and serials, relating scripted tales, getting
kudos from a guy (one boss?) with too many E’s in his name
…pearls speckled with green -buried for years finally found…
who or what was in jeopardy?

at the very least
there were no alarms ringing –
waking was easy

dreams often flutter like pompous grass –
taking turns we least expect 🙂
