(renga as I was taught)
in concert

in the evening
I out the darkened window
watching the silence

home hums, fades – then crickets chirp
cicadas sing, bull frogs call

distant traffic drones
and the lone train whistle joins
the rustling trees

Inspired by: Each day, pause to do layered listening –
the loudest, obvious sounds and then the next layer down, etc.

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.

I tell Little Miss
when I whistle at the birds
that I say hello

hopefully they hear – thank you
for your beautiful singing

instead of thinking
there is the crazy lady
who feeds us birdseed

whatever; fancy
simple, plain; to record or
radio – just sing

whistle with the birds that fly –
alone; with others find joy
