(g) Summery (7.3)

Summery

Relaxing
The day
Away with a
Movie, reading and tending
Gardens

Is
It really
A wonder why
We like our comics’
heroes?

Yet
With books
We can make
Our own reels by
reading

Wet
Basil and
Tomatoes in the
Evening smell of good
Growth

Then
Dinner out
With friends – even
With a loud modern
Jukebox

BE4: continent, contentment
(the unpruned version Here )

will clarity come
when there is order in the
garden of one mind?

*
each day a new view
to define just what is a
weed… to pull or not

*
today weeds will be
pulled and the garden trimmed, to
prepare for new growth

Contentment
Contentment in all circumstances is the ideal goal,
But as mortals we must be as content as we can,
Returning to our center as soon as possible when irritations arise.

Just Karma 110
frog adventures 1
(a haibun)

Something to look forward to
The space in the one hundred year floodplain
Will be planted with oats and wild flowers…

The other morning Little Miss and I
Watched some machinery flatten the grass
And grind the shafts too in preparation for seeding

Quite a bit can happen between visits –
Hopefully enough rain will fall to aide their growth
And attract multitudes of butterflies and bees

kaeru looks at the
meadow; how different will
it look in two weeks?

kaeru = in Japanese means both frog and returning.

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.
