(g/s) ‘fore’ warned! (5.11)

‘fore’ warned!

paved path for golf carts
do not make good walking trails
unless you play golf

though there are a few times that
the cart may ride on the grass

the public ought to
find paths where ‘Fore’ needn’t be
a warning to hear


Note: not all the paved cart paths are connected.

Ik 377 for June 2016 wp

Ik 377
what you do not see
(Collom Lunes sandwich an Elfje)

the horizon curves
the straight path; is not
a simple direction

Marvel at
How you twist
The truth that you

I have to
back away from your sharp
edged wagging tongue

You = a person I am having communication issues with

Inspired by: In order to see, listen; in order to hear, look.
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.

a haibun: A Litter of Plums

a haibun
A Litter of Plums…

on the other side of the fence a tree grows in Union City
but on the side where the path lines the dry creek because
it must be on higher ground, for the birds or rodents there
are perhaps just waiting for a litter of plums.

much better than the dirt that is mixed with sand and looks
just like a grey mass of nothingness or the scattered green,
clear or brown broken glass that even half buried cuts the
soles of those brave enough to tread pass the tree decorated
with graffiti – that can’t be covered by a new thin layer of tar
that blocks some artwork that is less than pleasing…

perhaps the swallowtails’, those two that I saw have a small
part in pollinating the flowers that once bloomed on that tree
that produced – a litter of plums.

all those ‘stones’ amid
the flesh of rotting fruit; waste?
returning to earth


Notes: stone; verb: 28. to remove stones from, as fruit.
litter; noun: 1. objects strewn or scattered about; scattered rubbish.
not litter; verb (used with object) 12. to give birth to (young),
as a multiparous animal. Though in this case it means both – even
if the fruit is not a mammal.
multiparous: adjective 2. producing more than one at a birth.

Though the grouping of plums on the ground did look like a bunch
of purple animals, nestled together trying to keep warm waiting for
Mother Plum to return.
