My Haiku Diary: Week 3


This covers the first of the 2 weeks I was working at Omega Institute and in Baltimore in July.

15
predawn jetplane packed with people
flying toward the sun
I'm nervous with new adventure

16
man at the Jersey turnpike Starbucks
orders five extra shots of espresso
preparing for New York?

17
rare earthquake, heartless heatwave
sudden cooling thunderstorm, today's drama
eclipses my tiny tension

18
when I wake, mist shrouds the trees
my body is still, in profound silence
paralyzed with peace

19
the lush leaves of trees
here in the east
are big as plates

20
people's eyes and faces
opening as we speak
and I am always stunned

21
is the anticipated moment
richer than my experience
of now?
