Sunday Morning. No blue Sky. Some clouds reflect.

Haiku True Nature:
Not just a sentence broken
Into smaller lines.

II

Haiku takes a walk:
A garden path inviting
Unexpected view.

III

Tracing thought patterns:
The bright weave of consciousness
Belonging nowhere.

IV

Intellect, a fool:
Lost in a dream of stories,
Suddenly wakened!

line breaks –

The gestures of the ancient calligrapher:
an ink-blot attains sentience….

Wang Wei and me,
Gone fishing
For ephemeral beauty
Down by the slow river,
The boiling tea kettle
Forgotten…
