(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

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

Shlomo, fast?

half blind from sleeping
dreams unclear as opaque glass;
happy birthday Sigmund

Also Freud’s middle name.

ik 98 for May 2015 wp

ik 98
for May 2015

Elfje and haiku : Wake up!
Wake Up!

open
your eyes
when you wake
enjoy the birdsong of
spring
*
even
at dusk
some wake after
day sleeping to find
stars
*
oft we do wonder
sleepwalking believing that
we are wide awake
*
Inspired by:
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer
8,879 ways to give yourself and others
good fortune right now.
*
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.

an Elfje series : uprising

An Elfje series:
uprising?

white
lilies rest
on their pads
floating gently on the
water

shadowing
the secrets
that lay beneath,
that unknown presence sleeping
there

looking
to rise
and break the
tension of the fluid
moment
