Stream of Consciousness

Well, it’s been a while since I posted anything – more like a few haiku a year now, rather than a haiku a day. Anyway, here is my first spring haiku for this year.

Returning warblers,

Sing like there’s no tomorrow –

The stream is silent.

Gratitude/Ritual:

With three gentle notes,

A dove bows to the morning –

Wood smoke and shadows.

Darkness:

Cold city morning,

Strong breezes fanning the flames –

The lights have gone out.

Cause and effect:

A blizzard of seeds,

Drifting across the reed bed –

Blown by a strong wind

Potential

Drops of light hanging,

From the empty clothes dryer –

Golden leaves shimmer.

Rising and falling

Gulls riding thermals,

Making the most of the sun –

Leaves turning yellow.

Store conciouness:

Hot sun hits the trees,

Cooled by the sea of green leaves –

Soft crunch of beech mast.

Meditation

Searching for something,

A spider walks in circles –

Then hangs in stillness.

Teacher

A cat lies sleeping,

‘Teacher, teacher’, sings the bird –

A plane thunders past.

Resurrection:

A broom gently sweeps,

Sunlight falls on tiny buds –

Heat haze on tarmac
