Words - haiku

the page waits
the ink in the pen waits
to meet and make love

I, the matchmaker
the celebrant, the midwife
or just a witness
thus, words are born
and then set free like winged seeds
on a carefree wind

will they fall into
hearts made pure with silence
and bloom into joy?

Come unto joy - haiku

come unto me
in this vale of birdsong
let us lose ourselves

let us lose ourselves
the body is but a shell
the ego a lie

the ego a lie
the mind has been making up
let us let go

let us let go
of the mind, put it down
succumb to stillness

succumb to stillness
in this vale of nothingness
come unto joy

Birds rise from trees - haiku

birds rise from trees
in a symphony of song
winged arias

birds rise from trees
a trembling twig waves farewell
till dusk we part

birds rise from trees
carrying bits of tree spirit
rooted and flying

Forget-me-nots - haiku

forget-me-not, please
said Day to Night, in passing
the moon rose, rotund

solitary owl
calls out to a day unseen
forget-me-not, light

between the pages
turning into days and nights
pressed forget-me-nots

waves write parting notes
on the gently yielding sand
forget-me-not, shore
