3 Haiku’s

I’ve set a weekly goal, to reread what I’ve written each week and then concoct a blog post based on that material. But this week, as for so many weeks before, what I was writing about was the angst and dangerous wastefulness born of Trump’s refusal to interact meaningfully with reality.

So, rather than rehash things that we’ve been unhappily dealing with for 4 long years, I’m going to share 3 Haikus that have been percolating for awhile.

Hope you are having a peaceful Sunday…

What Comes with the Task

Iā€™m washing the dishes
Hot water warming my hands
Calm comes with the task

Gathering pine cones
For winter bonfires ahead
Joy comes with the task

And raking acorns
Off hillside trails that we walk
Poems come with the task

    How lovely! And so much mindfulness here – I hope thinking about these moments of joy and poetry kept you distracted from our current reality for a bit.
