thoughts arise in haiku forms
New morning ritual?
Serving the Silence
Offering hands to weed, mulch
Listening to Poppies sing with my eyes
Heart praying quiet gratitude.
From yesterdays walk . . .
circling around my head
I also live here
Mosquitos, blood sucking mothers
Give life to protein snacks for bats and humminbirds
Bring me no disease
I know my place in your food chain.
We stand quiet
my Beloved and I
Sky and surf dance as one
Across the back porch screen announce
The Sun’s arrival
An avian chorus as a
Coral dawn awakens the East
Sleepy eyes open
Gratitude swells my heart
Another day for Love
I am drawn to the temple bell stops . . .
The image created in my mind was the wind chimes that hang at the edge of my porch and the frogs calling for rain in the metal tubes above rain lillies. Such a peaceful delight this morning spent listening. But no rain.
What an amazing sight that is! Great celebration of the fearsome dragons!
This is an amazing haiku. Thank you for sharing it. So to the point and simple.
Thank you. A wonderful expression of being guided by by heart in joy
Going backwards at times and the exultation of arrival . . . how true that resonates
Bewildered with spring, what a lovely phrasing!
Wow! The hurricane last summer has left us much the same. These lovely lines remind so much of the. universal experience we share. Thank you!
Love this one,. Kept this one for my garden diary Karen. So many times I have experienced that moment
