sadness
sets sails east of east
called by change
held by youth's grip
humanity squanders

weekend meditation

Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #16 Only The First Line "steel blue night"

Our host gave us a choice of five different first lines with which o be inspired and write a haiku.  I chose 'with the passing spring'.  He, also, challenged us to write a troiku using the first line, lost in the corn field.


with the passing spring
weathered oak once more buds
shiny leaves abound

lost in the corn field
small whirlwind gathers
withered stalks

lost in the corn field
the fledgling calls in vain
vulture circles

small whirlwind
gathers strenght
dusty funnel

withered stalks
trampled in the stampede
worm fodder

hapless greed
vessel split asunder
karma
two legged beast of burden
sails in a coconut shell

lucky or shrewd?

ladder to freedom
built with the bones of the dead
 bejeweled escape
