Late May and June 2011 Haiku Notebook

Off to the east shone
A glistening pyramid
Sunset reflection
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 05/21/11

We set out for once
To be spontaneous
We’ll plan that again
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 05/21/11

I arrived safely
Am ensconced in a blue chair
Thus Monday begins
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 05/23/11

Try to have some fun
Responses could be in haiku
Make thinking funner.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 05/23/11

The only thing we
Can see moving fast is the
Clouds in the blue sky
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 5/25/11

On Mars the spirit
Finally faded and failed.
On Earth it’s still here

“What one comes to understand in the pursuit of science
is the vastness of our ignorance.”
David Eagleman, author of Incognito, The secret lives of the brain.

Our love falls off as
Petals in the winds of time
Lose their blessed scent
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/01/11

Love falls in the wind
Like dried leaves blown along
By forces of time.

The forest green bus
Moving up and down the road
Freedom comes or not
081303 Chuckwalla State Prison bus
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/01/11

Loves gentle moment
Awaiting some refreshment
Hiding in a smile
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/01/11

An angel spread her
Wings and flew away today
To a better place
(Thank you Kate Davis-Shabel for all you did)
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/02/11

White clouds pretty day
Silver lining if ever
I saw one nearby.
Sprinklers in the clouds
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/02/11

My favorite things
Together in the same place
Haiku on GovLoop
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/03/11

Here we sit typing
Just hangin’ out in the fog
Summertime city
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/06/11

Nothing happening
Nothing to report right now.
Up to the minute.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/10/11

Like running ideas
Mysterious mid day forms
Shadows of the steam
(upon observing steam shadows off the top of UCSF)
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/15/11

A fresh white poppy
Flowers in the morning light
A white poppy -Flowers in the morning light
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/17/11

Fog rolls in the bay
Hiding the golden gate bridge
Like words hiding truth
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/19/11

Summer has solstice
Longest day light of the year
Warming heart and soul
Longest day light
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/21/11

You can always be
Unclad under the solstice
Moon – Natural wonder
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/21/11

On solstice or not
San Francisco summer now
Fog just rolling in
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/21/11

Spiritual care
Comes in to raise the spirits
If they are too low
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/22/11

Smiling, she said, “You’re
Funny but not amusing.
Just peculiar.”
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/23/11

I saw two hawks today.
One came down
And stood on the ground
To see me.
I asked, “Where have you been?
My hope has flown away.”
The hawk stared,
Then looked away,
Shuffling his feet
Like the ground was not where he wanted to stay.
The second hawk it glided by
And flapped impatiently.
The hawk on the ground
Just looked around
But failed to answer me.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/27/11

The hawk flew higher
Up through fog ever rising
To reach sun soaked sky.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/29/11

A few inspired by the Time Paradox, by Zimbardo & Boyd

Every life is a
Race with time and a battle
Against not being.

Life is a race with,
And a battle against, time
Marvel and wonder.

Whenever we look
Happiness is the present
Choice in ideal time
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/29/11

Excellent idea
Play for a day, say hooray
Yippee skippy do!
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/29/11

I just had to say
A okay, okie dokey
Like a big goof ball
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 06/29/11
