2020 Haiku-a-Day

1/1/2020

On first day of year

Fading light silhouettes trees

New is old is new

1/2/20

At home for five days

Stooping for paper, bird song

Pierces isolation

1/3/20

Accelerating

4 am worries torment

Infection can spread

1/4/20

Last minute concert

Circumstances conspired

Past skips into now.

1/5

Hitting the water

Worries start to take over

Instead send prayers

1/6

Purple thunder sounds

Come from his didgeridoo

Ah, he breathes easy.

1/7 Dream

Bright gossamer skirt

flares end of agave didge.

Breath visible.

1/8

Testosterone wars

Where have all the flowers gone?

Finger earth for seeds.

1/9

Tranquil pool today

Floated, sending out prayers

A root in water.

1/10

Create new habits.

Miracle if humans can.

King tides though, come true.

1/11

Wet morning sidewalks

Red tree leaves sparkle in sun

Note: this, too, will change

1/12

How does word get out?

Endless workshops to help me

Still, I must do work.

1/13

AD makes me slow

I swallow urge to hurry

Digestion varies.

1/14

Lost temper today

No point. He cannot recall

Enough to adjust.

1/15

Mundane fills my mind

Care provider cancels shift

Hup, hup get to work

1/16

Wind howls discontent

What are we humans doing?

I sit and listen.

1/17

Deep dive with whale guide

Expansion through connection

My dimensions grow.

1/18

Diverse women march

In Oaktown spirits rise

Buoys my painful hip.

1/ 21

Yucca wants to spread!

Multiplies invisibly

Voracious roots suck.

1/23

Bright sun feels hopeful

Maybe will get hands dirty

Weeds tap eternal.

1/24

Clinging to what was

Resisting possible change

No space for surprise.
