i write haiku on twitter. instead of shuffling through endless piles of paper,
i can locate them with one click…..
here is a concise version of my last post:
– glad to be here –
dogs barking at dawn-
one more soft silent morning
lost in autumn fog.
against my skin,
the atmosphere feels like velvet
– hint –
the mornings reveal
more spiderwebs, limned in light-
harbingers of fall.
-walnut tree –
a single leaf tumbles,
flutters golden to the ground-
hint of fall to come.
– immanent –
fall mists and dropping pears,
So evocative. ‘soft’ and ‘hint’ are evident here in Ohio. Walnut trees are the first to lose their leaves… but I will have to travel into the city to see their present state.
This time of year is always the opposite for having time for poetry it seems… I feel rushed already by all the tasks of early fall. If there is success in slowing down and meditating or going about my work “in the moment” it will certainly be recorded:)
The reading of these haiku give a pace that is more measured and sense-ible.
I will remember “limned in light”! It has a lilt in the mind and on the tongue 🙂
thankyou, i. i have used it many many times over the years…i like the sound, too
