Monday Haiku May 12 2014

I guess I need a new category – Monday Haiku – since I can’t seem to get any writing done on Sundays any more.

Honeysuckle Haiku

 
A gentle spring night
Sweet smell of honey suckle
I walk with my dog
 
Fresh cut spring grasses
The wild roses in bloom
My dog walks with me
 
Still evening air wafts
Scents only summer can bring
We walk together

Sunday Haiku Dec 9 1012

Namaste Everyone!

I haven’t posted a haiku in a while, busy busy busy, Hell I haven’t written a regular post in a while….working on that. This one came to me last night, as I was falling asleep so I had to get up and jot it down…then couldn’t get back to sleep of course.

Winter solstice time
The Long dark night stirs the soul
Still the sun rises

When writing about the Solstice isnt it mandatory to have a picture of Stonehenge…..

Om shanti!

I have a love affair with Dragonflies, I always have. And dont tell anyone, but I admit that deep down, below my analytic side, I believe they are Fairy Kings and Queens and therefore have mystical powers. And seeing one or two might be common in the summer, but seeing many in one day or to see a ‘swarm’ of them surround your car is a ‘sign’. A sign of what I dont know,  but seeing them this weekend, several around town and a ‘swarm’ around my car after leaving a weekend of yoga training and then seeing a beautiful picture on a blog buddies page, well I’m just waiting for something auspicious to happen. 🙂

Here is Sandy’s beautiful blog

Namaste Lovlies!

Ice cream castles in the air

Storms in the distance
Clouds often tell the story
Turmoil of the heart
c~

Even from something potentially dangerous and to some folks scary, can come great beauty and wonder. Earlier this week I came home from a long day of classes, clients and banking , with a storm hot on my heels.

The clouds came rolling in, and with the rumble of  thunder in the distance, coming closer and closer,  I sat on the patio, a glass of wine in hand and watched the light show. It wasnt quite dark yet and the sun was still shining, reflecting off the billowing white clouds. The sunlight mingled with the approaching storm to produce the most beautiful clouds and sunset. These pictures don’t do them justice, maybe you had to have the wind blowing your hair in your face and the sound of thunder to get the full effect.

“Aren’t the clouds beautiful? They look like big balls of cotton…I could just lie here all day, and watch them drift by… If you use your imagination, you can see lots of things in the cloud formations… What do you think you see, Linus?”
“Well, those clouds up there look like the map of the British Honduras on the Caribbean… That cloud up there looks a little like the profile of Thomas Eakins, the famous painter and sculptor… And that group of clouds over there gives me the impression of the stoning of Stephen… I can see the apostle Paul standing there to one side…”
“Uh huh… That’s very good… What do you see in the clouds, Charlie Brown?”
“Well, I was going to say I saw a ducky and a horsie, but I changed my mind!”
Charles M. Schulz
 
 
What do you see when you look at clouds?
 
Om Shanti

Sunday Haiku….. April 29, 2012 and May 6th 2012

Mike and I went backpacking (well sorta, it’s an interesting tale, I’ll  post about it in a day or two), he went for 7 days and I went for 3. He has way more vacation days than I do. Anyway, since he kept the camera with him I couldn’t post any of the pictures till he came back and several of them inspired the following haiku’s, so I wrote last weeks haiku,  but waited until I had the pictures to go along with them to actually post them. I wrote the first one on the trail as we headed up Blood Mountain in Georgia.

They are called the Smoky Mountains for a reason.

Enjoy the pictures, it was a beautiful place.

Om Shanti

Cheryl
