TBD on Ning

Since my interest in the Haiku form arose out of my exploration of mindfulness, most of my efforts will somehow fall under that heading. So rather than try to force-fit them into previously existing discussions, I will start my own. I make no pretense now, of understanding the nuances of the form other than the 5/7/5 requirement, so I guess they will mostly be "basterdizations". So be it, sometimes the message trumps the format. That being said, I promise to take the time to at least try to understand the rules that I may be breaking. I will start by collecting here the few that have been offered elsewhere.

founding fathers prize

the pursuit of happiness

best let it seek you

Too much to confront

The labor of a lifetime

Needs done day by day

Replayed misfortune

Round and round karma's wheel turns

Lessons need learning

Reminds me of the Loggins song:

make a real change now
waiting for a miracle
closes the circle

Snowfall fills the sky

Disappears into the sea

Drink in the silence


the words of last year

spoken in the old language

next year a new voice

            with a little help from T. S. Eliot

words shared from last year :

some will remain forever

others best be lost

we pray for new voice

we need a new tone, approach

leading us forward

sky of azure blue

V line of geese overhead

One moment in time

dead leaves in brown grass

a splash of yellow peaks through

foolish winter bloom

howling  brisk north winds

blowing leaves aimlessly sow

harbinger of spring

i slept fitfully...
i wept dreaming of you and
magnolia blossoms

here in my bedroom
i'm found by the cricket who
hangs out in my tub
