the mission

To provide a forum for the intersection of spirit and art - a place to share what creations we must manifest to continue living in a meaningful way.


I'm open to what develops here - poetry, fiction, non-fiction, images, videos, quotes, insight - mainly looking at this blog as a record or shared diary in a spirit of playfulness and inspiration....mental froth, mind's eye materialization, and life songs lost and found.

everyday haiku

I'm waiting again
gurus call hope a delusion
a late snow melting

Again the haiku format impresses me with it's ability to concisely render a poetic device. I think of this one as a "turn around." Reading the first two lines I was set up for a pessimistic theme, ie that waiting is a negative thing, that the gurus don't value hope, but really the same lines could be positive... in any case the clever third line subtly ensures you see this, ending the poem with an inspiring optimism, that there are better, perhaps realer things than even hope. thank you brother Haiku

On another reading, I sense the first line is the main message, that the poet is waiting because of the what the gurus think about hope. Mmmm..

keen observations brother - sometimes in the role of the channel we don't really get what we're saying - i feel closest to your first take - look forward to more of your insight -
