emptiness
garden stripped
of joy

 

deep inside
unending ache
your departure

 

missing you
unending winter
bathed in tears

Troiku

smudging ceremony
an abalone shell hosts
harmony

abalone shell
tossed and tumbled
ocean of strength

abalone shell
vessel for burning ashes
smoke carrying prayers

harmony
caressing abalone shell
love restored

On the River

Carpe Diem Weekend-meditation #3 on the river

on the river
lights float to the horizon
the dead rejoice                                 © Basho         

floating candles
floating lights

on the river
paper lanterns
set adrift

lights float on the horizon
guiding the departed
to the spirit world

the dead rejoice
as spirits return
from whence they began

 

 

 

Creating Beauty

Carpe Diem #1259 creating beauty
Today’s prompt reminded me of the first time I got to try to make pottery on a wheel in my best friend’s basement.
pottery

fresh slab of clay
wedging air bubbles
spinning and shaping

fresh slab of clay
cut with wire from a block
a treat from you dad

wedging air bubbles
hands full of fatigue
not done yet

spinning and shaping
vessel beginning to emerge
collapsing again

            IMG_8326

from experience
your vessel holds it’s shape
a thing of beauty
forty odd years on my desk
token of youth and friendship

A hundred Gourds

Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #2 Troiku “a hundred gourds”

Chiyo-Ni haiku gourds (1)

a hundred gourds
sprouting on top
the compost heap

from the heart
growth overflowing
shades of green

of one vine
twisting and turning
many fruits

In My Garden

Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #2 Troiku “a hundred gourds”

in my garden
starflowers bloom
come and see                          © Chiyo-Ni (age 6)

dragonfly

in my garden
butterflies dance
with dragonflies

starflowers bloom
along the pathway
gems of white

come and see
crawling on the fennel
fat caterpillars

Autumn Retreat Day 1

Autumn Retreat

Day 1  Troiku

IMG_2462.JPG

autumn departure
pines whisper in fading light
creak of  the porch swing

autumn departure
leaves twirl at your feet
wind kisses your cheek

pines whisper in fading light
cool air colors the night
seed pods split

creak of the porch swing
peeling fence post
reveal your absence

At The Buddha’s Feet

Troiku

 

butterfly alights
scattering cherry blossoms
at the buddha’s fee
t

butterfly alights
softly on the hand
a bit of good fortune

 

scattering cherry blossom
at the buddha’s feet
a noisy robin

at the buddha’s feet
two white pebbles and a snail
glisten in the sun

Autumn – Summer Kisses Fade

Troiku for   B&P Shadorma and Beyond – The Troiku

Inspiration: Autumn Leaves by Nat King Cole

in autumns glow
summer kisses fade
in silent whispers

~~~

in autumns glow
your upturned face
haunts my dreams

~~~

summer kisses fade
as autumn leaves fall
loneliness settles in

~~~

in silent whispers
I cry your name
dry leaves rustle
