Mirroring Life:

Water Flowing at the centre, the primary source of life;

Lava flowing;

Roots growing everywhere in the deep soil;

Flowers, grass and trees;

and then the Sky:

blue and white clouded sky,

starry sky,

sky at sunrise and sky at sunset

and finally, the dark sky of the deep space: the void in between what we know exist.

 

Some Haiku poems I read recently about time, sky, nature and life.

(From Haiku Mind of Patricia Donegan)

 

To see the Void vast infinite

look out the window

into the blue sky. (by Allen Ginsberg)

 

First light

everything in this room

was already there (by Christopher Herold)

 

No flower can stay

yet human grieve at dying –

the red peony. (by Edith Shiffert)

 

Ancient pond –

frog jumps in

sound of the water (by Basho Matsuo)

 

Stillness –

piercing the rocks

the sounds of cicadas (by Basho Matsuo)

 

After the rain

bomb craters filled

with stars (by John Brandi)

 

Drawing light

from another world-

the Milky Way. (by Yatsuka Ishihara)

 

A page of Shelley

brightens and dimes

with passing clouds (by Rod Willmot)

 

Shaking

the packet of seeds

asking, are you still alive?  (by Kiyoko Tokutomi)
