Observing 17
Spring Greys
(mini haibun)

Oh where be the Green O’spring
(Just three days from the starting line)?
The flock of red breasted robins have returned
Looking for safe purchase in the hedge
Their internal clocks say it’s time to build nests!
Both bush and tree seems to remain barren –
If there were buds, they’ve been squirreled away!
They play King of the Hill on ‘white’ mounds of snow!
Even the Red Wing blackbirds have gathered in groups

Yellow dawning sun
Rises in the crisp blue sky;
colorless cold chills

IK 404
As It Is

Silver
And white
In more abundance
Grow from the thy
Crown

once when getting a trim
the gal
wanted to change the proportion

declined did
I,
not one to dye

Inspired by: love your grey hairs

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 Elfje; five line verse of 11 words and
line/syllable count; tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8 and or pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4
are my interpretations of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

Just Karma 139 for July 2016 wp

Just Karma 139
resonance

lazy white clouds scuttle
across a blue atmosphere;
seen through green tree leaves

taming the junk and antiques
more floor space and ground is found

papers from years past
become stray musical chords
for the earth to play

…covered… 1.24

…covered…                    1.24

covered once again
in a blanket of white snow
footprints show the depth

first system of two, arrived;
stay safe and warm in your home

footprints down the steps
and across the drive of some
small creature about

stay safe and warm in your home
the roadways are not yet plowed

covered once again
wrapt attention, the blanket
of winter holds fast
