With the complexity of the world pressing down at all times, haikus can focus and slow things down and gently reach out to simplicity — in language and ideas.
Three from today in Renton, Washington during the cool down and counting of blessings.
WHAT IS TIME?
Frenetic world of work long gone
standing next to woods
breathing cool air.
FAST PACE TO THE BIG RELAX
Walk of this day
to race and contemplate
sweat running down lungs pushing.
Heart and soul on the mend
after hard hit
of loved ones leaving for good.
