Branches – a Haiku

Water feeds deep roots
Branches reach up to the sky
Reflected in waves.

Flight – a Tanka

Floating free in fog
Enthralled by eternity
Unfocused; unbound
Enlightened and unattached
Fluttering, falling; failing

Planting Seeds – A Tanka

Consciousness causes
Curiosity to stir
Observing begins
Accumulating knowledge
Seeds of wisdom are planted

Haiku on Time

Time devours all
From the roots to the branches
Nothing can escape

Crow – Haiku

Crow on the trashcan
Watch ducks swim a muddy creek
Glide into the sky

The Process – a tanka

Compose, line by line,
From beginning to end
Until its finished:
Every verse, every rhyme, and
Every single drop of blood.

Dukkha – a tanka

Suffering exists
And it can be overcome
The message is clear
See the source of suffering
Follow the path to freedom

Winter Haiku

A crisp cold wind blows
Snow starts swirling on mountains
Ice sparkles on trees.

Huginn and Muninn (Haiku)

Odinn, Huginn, and Muninn

Two ravens fly out
Watching all under the sky
And returning home.

My Own Words (Tanka)

Simple assignment:
Write this in your own words,
But no words are mine.
They belong to everyone,
I just rearrange them.
