Living like a leaf

The most beautiful natural colors

Holding in my hands
Like a sparrows speckled egg
Fragile full of life

Hiding in my heart
Memory or foreboding
Please stay there for now

Happenstance in dance
Brings vitality and joy
Healing in movement

Butterfly haiku-5

Like butterfly wings
Crumpled on the narrow path
Bright spirit fades out
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 03/02/13

Always Orion
Running across the night sky
Orion always

Thoughts to good to be
Fantasy musings waiting
For healing in me

Far as I can see
I know is mine secretly
I don’t own the sky

It was a conceit of mine
To think that of all the poor seekers for help
There are none
who have it worse than me

There is a depth to a well
Which grows deeper and richer
As woe is poured in
And compassion is pulled out

The woman of Samaria stood at the well
And drew water for Jesus
He recognized the kindness being given
By one who had suffered in order to stand by that well.


Living right now
Usually mundane
But sometimes sublime

Living right now
Moment to moment
Without anxiety
And foregoing anticipation
Has great value in its simplicity
Living right now
In the moments of pain and heartache
Is exquisite in a way
The heart can break
Then move to another moment
Living right now
When life is good
And simple joys appear
Makes such moments
Worth all that life can give

A different plane
Of relating has emerged
Deep sorrow deep joy

Fall leaves

Living like a leaf
Letting the wind have its way
Warmed by sun each day
