(g) Spring Greys (3.17) wp

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

Awakening

The sun’s dawning brings back warmth, light, and color
to a darkened world.

Yellow roses create warm feelings and provide happiness.
Giving yellow roses can tell someone the joy they bring you and the friendship you share.

surveillance
(a haibun)

amid the falling pre-autumn chestnut leaves swirling
in a forceful wind – perhaps the tail of distant gale
one brave yellow swallowtail unfurled, righted;
and bravely proceeded across the street
and out of sight and into a pale dawn sky

day stretches at a
constant tick or fluttering
of wings gaining way

Just Karma 57 for March 2016 wp

Just Karma 57
warm at ten
(three haiku)

single daffodil
brilliant yellow brings delight
to a little girl

good weather brings out
the neighbors; babies, dogs;
we stop, say ‘hello’

time for soap bubbles
Little Miss makes magic too;
rainbow circles pop

ik 189 for August 2015 wp

ik 189
(American renga)
head on!

marvel at insects
dragonfly on the screen of
the porch door, drying

allowing you to take a
photo of it’s long body

so in a close up
Little Miss could see
yellow sunglasses

Note: when I enlarged the photo within the camera window –
the dragonflies yellow line on it’s head did look like it was wearing
sun-specks! This may have been our visitor:

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.

9.24 willow…

9.24 willow…

willow’s yellow lips
silenced by the summer, fall
reveal squirrel’s nest

In Judaism the Lulav helps to celebrate Sukkot a Fall harvest Festival.
Several plants make up the Lulav.
“Etrog refers to the heart, the place of understanding and wisdom.
Lulav refers to the backbone, uprightness. Myrtle corresponds to the eyes,
enlightenment. Willow represents the lips, the service of the lips (prayer).”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lulav

Note: I had always thought of the willow leaves as eyes because of their shape.
Interesting to find different interpretations.
