Dear Crocus

Don’t be fooled

This warm day won’t last

 

Small flicker

Lips pucker

Sugar rush

 

Frozen night

Life’s breath

Whisper of glistening ice

 

Frozen earth

Forsythia on sill

Yellow then green

 

Still cold

Blue skies

Bulbs pushing up

 

Release your grip

You’re no longer welcome in me

I choose to breathe deep

 

A bridge of churches

Back & forth

In song

 

Sunning kitten

In window

Jealous crocus

 

After snow squall

Cardinal sings

Earth turns

February 28, 2019

Just once,
everything, only for once. Once and no more. And we too,
once. And never again. But this
having been once, though only once,
having been once on earth—can it ever be cancelled?

Rainer Maria Rilke

February 28, 2019

The most important characteristic of haiku is how it conveys, through implication and suggestion, a moment of keen perception and perhaps insight into nature or human nature. Haiku does not state this insight, however, but implies it. In the last hundred years—in Japanese and English-language haiku—implication has been achieved most successfully through the use of objective imagery. This means you avoid words that interpret what you experience, such as saying something is beautiful” or mysterious,” and rely on words that objectively convey the facts of what you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. Instead of writing about your reactions to stimuli, in a good haiku you write about those things that cause your reactions. If you remember nothing else about crafting haiku, remember that. If your haiku take advantage of this technique, your readers can experience the same feelings you felt, without your having to explain them.

Right Work

You moths must leave now;
I am turning out the light
And going to sleep.

(Richard Wright)

A bare pecan tree
slips a pencil shadow down
a moonlit snow slope.

(Etheridge Knight)

Campfire extinguished,
the woman washing dishes
in a pan of stars

***

but, child,
there is no song
in the egg you break

(Raymond Roseliep)

spring wind—
I too
am dust

(Patricia Donegan)

Hammering a dent out of a bucket
a woodpecker
answers from the woods

(Gary Snyder)

potato
seeing
everywhere
below

(Paul Reps)

Breaking my yellow crayon
to draw
the barley harvest field

(Kei Hayashi)

crescent moon
would I look at the clouds
without it?

(William J. Higginson)

fluttering down
mulch for the field
cherry blossoms

.はらはらと畠のこやしや桜花
hara-hara to hata no koyashi ya sakura kana

(Issa)

the river
the river makes
of the moon

(Jim Kacian)

pausing
halfway up the stair —
white chrysanthemums

(Elizabeth Searle Lamb)

Where there are people
there are flies,
and there are Buddhas

(Issa)

Right Attitude

September 20, 1930. Westerners try to conquer the mountains. People of the East contemplate the mountains. For us, mountains are not an object of scientific study but a work of art. Patiently I taste the mountains.

November 9, 1930. What Fayan said, Each step is an arrival.” * Forget about past walking, don’t think about future walking; one step, another step, no long ago, no now, no east or west, one step equals totality. Get this far and you understand the meaning of walking Zen.

*Fayan Wenyi (885–958) was the founder of the Chinese Fayan school of Chan, or Zen.

Sun’s rare peak
Such gray work
Changes mind

A brisk wind
Two hands holding
Four feet gliding

Cold and brisk
Hot and Bliss
Cup to lips

Pitch black
Coyotes shriek, lights on
Silence

Gray sky
Only sleet
Salt dome full

Old cat
His back
To the cooling fireplace

A sliver of sun
Darkening shadows
December afternoon

Birds crying
Heading south
Winter escape

Thin sunlight
Falling on snow
New Year’s dawn

Icy morning
Squirrels and birds
Gathering together for breakfast

Frosty sidewalk
Running fast
Cold paws
