The Wisdom of Pearls: Haiku Trio

The pains of the oyster,

 

Creates wondrous beauty called a pearl,

 

Fruit of toil and pain. 

 

We treasure  shiny pearls,

 

Yet, we forget the miracle,

 

How pain is not in vain.

 

Haven’t mothers hurt?

 

To bring humankind to this world?

 

Is all pain useless?

The Lone Sheep

Lost, the lonely sheep,

Following its its own shadow,

It turns in circles.

Hungry Ghosts

We are hungry ghosts,

Never full, always craving.

We fill  boundless pits...

The Promise of Ends

Good and bad fruit die,

 

Joy follows sorrow. Life, death,

 

Ends have beginnings.

Boredom

No peace, no solace,

Our monkey minds distract us,

Witnessing waking...

The buzzing honey makers,

 

Praise the coming Spring...

The Life of a Tree

A Tree can only grow,
 
Out of the earth, borne of seed,
 
It needs nourishment.

Rising Spirits

Nature stood still,
 
As the peaceful spirits rose,
 
From their earthly bonds.

Thee wind  is blowing.

A Silent Voice

Restless is my inner voice.

 

It is not the time to speak.

 

Spirit  will guide soul.

Shadows of Time

Time flows through our roots,,

 

Fruits of trees ripen and die.

Is it there all is?

Ignorance impairs the judgment,

 

Desire slaves soul.

The Carnival of Life

Carnival of life,

 

Masks, disguises, we all wear,...

 

Our distorted truths...

Rivers apart meet,

They join with a vast ocean...

Becoming that one...

Beyond being, time and space,

 Beyond existence...

I cry in silence,
Unseen tears of the soul,
A soul still in chains...

Cages

Selves trapped in cages we are,,

These invisible cages,

Of our own making...

Yearning for Home

I lost my purpose, ,

Lured by desire, vain pride...

Hard to return home...

Snowflakes

A picture of falling snowflakes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The unseen snowflakes... 

A simple complexity... 

I know they were here.

 

Nature

Neither rain nor ice,

Defying  definition.
 
Beyond space and time.

 

Being

Present in   absence.

They leave but  traces.

Silent, altered  states.
