BE13: Reflective Autumn Stroll

Occasionally the need arises when we venture into the city. Compared to some,
our town is moderate to small. But for being in the northeast and one of the
original thirteen states…there is some age and interesting architecture.

There is a variety of old and new on any given block, with some respect paid to
the journey of the people who made up and make up the patchwork quilting of
people. There are the divisions that keep us separate, yet we try to notice more
the similarities, and with charity both bold and anonymous we attempt to close
the gaps.

arriving early
hand in hand, we promenade
‘round the city block

Journey

Every step of life’s journey is an important adventure.

BE11: Here’s Looking at You…

On a short journey to the back of the yard, I happened to met the groundhog
that lives under my shed. Just about ten feet away – I was walking to the creek –
stopped and looked to my right – and there the animal with ever curious eyes
stayed stock still and looked at me. So I engaged in a one sided conversation.
Basically stating the beauty it possessed, that I meant no harm, and could holes
be dug on the other side of the creek. To prove my courtesy, I kept the distance.
Then turned to walk back home. Relief at the disconnect of human contact, the
groundhog then scurried away into the bramble.

Intuition

Whether you call it “a gut feeling,” “flying by the seat of your pants,” or
having spirit guides whisper to you, there is no denying that intuition
should be a part of every decision.

Just Karma 200
Ch’i
(haibun)

to have energy
one must move; is five miles
in one day enough

Woken early to assist family; stopped at the one hundred year flood
plain vibrant with wild flowers (surrounded by a circular path). Brief s
top back home before walking to the library, just to see if I could.
On the way home stopped for a bowl of soup before the return journey.
There is always motion in any given day – all toll about five miles plus.

energy to heal
aid in a good night’s sleeping
in one day; enough

The heron
( haibun)

Just a short journey; to the edge of the yard.
Folding chair, binoculars and camera too.
Angle the chair just so to see the north/south
flow of about two hundred paces of the creek.
To listen to the bird chatter and bug wing hum
In the protective shadow of old Mother willow.

silently gliding
in gracefully; the heron
settles on a rock

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.
