Haiku: Steadfast Tree

You have seen so much

Survived our vicissitudes

Stay steadfast and strong

Haiku: The Word Is Out

So the word is out

Something birds knew long ago

Where have they all gone?

Poem: ‘Clouds’

I’ve been watching clouds, ideas floating in my mind, sometimes hidden behind veils of confusion and deceit, or often not there at all. Then the blue sky reigns, like a short cut to heaven, where the breath seems sweeter and life so much richer, connected to the source of all joy and awareness. And when the clouds return, like single thoughts intruding, I know they will pass
