Aftermath of a Hurricane
(Two sedoka, shadorma, pi ku, tau ki)

Shout out and thank you
To those states away helping…
Several phone calls later
the distance narrowed –
That all was mostly well there
Where a relative resides

While I’m not a fan
Of some social media
The information relayed
Showed a happy bunch
After lunch, survived Irma –
And for that, I am grateful

Thanks go to
A gent named Robert
Who at the
Hotline phone
Called me back with good news too,
Regarding ‘Irma’

hurricane
caused
people to link

hands clasp via airwaves
thank you
for bringing comfort and relief

(g) down time… (7.12)

down time…

some nine miles even
trod before and after plans;
soon to find relief

in perhaps an easier
night of actual sleeping

too much tossing and
turning caused an early rise;
looking for ends day

Humorous Humidity?

Rain
Brought little
Relief from mugginess
Hanging heavy in the
Air

Robin
Chicks in
The hedgerow nest
Seek juicy worms for
Lunch

I
Attempted to
Create internet accounts
One was successful, one
Not

Too
Many passwords
Boggle the mind
Already fried, frazzled and
Faulting…

(g) Hurry and Wait (3.22) wp

Observing 22 Whether 2
Hurry and Wait
(haibun with renga)

Another day, another appointment
Whether to choose next available
Or wait another day – ‘No brainer’ – here.
First available, same day, hours to wait.

Too many specialists, at least locations are near –
Whether to wait until closer to time or
Leave early – does it matter where one waits…
Are close enough that they are only minutes away.

Then of course there is the other waiting and
Whether to worry about the unknown or
Just wait for all the results that will determine
The next steps…

Well checks done yearly
detect the unusual;
Treatment can begin…

Or one can go home; relief
For another year of health

Insurance can be
A benefit, even with
Those ‘high’ deductibles…

Ik 382 for July 2016 wp

IK 382
a good void

sorting through boxes
empty binders here, paper
there, bag magazines…

rebox the books; recycle,
shift the weight, until they’re gone
*
sorting through my thoughts
empty the negative and
gain freedoms’ relief

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.

Just Karma 107 for May 2016 wp

Just Karma 107
temperate?
(a tanka)

another hot day
ended with the fluted notes
of a gentle rain

wilting leaves enjoy relief
flowers, fruit and the grass grows

Just Karma 79 for May 2016 wp

Just Karma 79
The Cup Fills

More
More rain
Some thunder
Some lightning
Water to fill the gully
Water to fill the creek
From here until next week

More
More ‘asks’
Some simple
Some complex
Questions to be answered
Questions to be discussed
From relations that are crossed

More
More sighs
Some in relief
Some in frustration
Choices to invest in
Choices to investigate
From here until next week
