~ 1 ~

Sunday newspapers
A gravel shard by threshold…
Father’s Day.

~ 2 ~

Jumped over the pier
A Bass fed off live crickets
Fisherman tales.

~ 3 ~

Sunny days all through
The south side windows
Against laptop.

~ 4 ~

In the fresh silk grass
Little turtle growing…
Wheel-crossed now.

~ 5 ~

Seasoned warrior
Cash, check or charge
The Chariot power.

~ 6 ~

Jumping off plane with no brolly
Borderline fear.

~ 7 ~

Internet on vacations
Seasonal Service.

Day after solstice

Alive, we're descending…
a script on the wall

with new perception,
and when arrive
the guardian meets
with oil chandelier
& phrase:
what took you so long…

New pair of wings,
and sudden
shift of
to fly thru…

rx square on
crossing Mercury/Neptune
to test/taste
the clairs...
inward turned eyes…

Where hardship & lesson,
there – gifts from the gods…
if only we dare
to question…

Now open

~ 1 ~

Copying behavior
Origin of life on earth
A silent bud.

~ 2 ~

Sweet melon flavor
Twist with lemon drops
Now open.

~ 3 ~

Birth vortex
How many more loops
To recall a soulmate.

~ 4 ~

Feelings leak…
I beat myself up
To the teeth.

~ 5 ~

Long day
Two eyes open wild
1-eyed Jack removed.

~ 6 ~

Lunch time
Hungry spider weaves cobweb
Through withered vine.

~ 7 ~

Afternoon stroll
Black cat crossing alley
Stopped. Returned halfway.

~ 8 ~

Dreams – under fallen petals
Hide ends Seek…

– Zwobel ~ Photo Challenge ~ Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

It was my quirk
to go one-willed
as if in circus,
as if a girl on the
shiny rolling ball:
white dress, 
crimson shoes…

Not my fault at all
that arena
had continued
throughout  the tent
to the wide open
tantalized burnt field:
raw grit/gravel,
cobbles and dirt…

                   swallowed by sadness…

it dawned on me –
How to get booked solid…

Inspiration: photo prompt by Neeraj; reading the book by M. Port "Book Yourself Solid" , thanks!

Regret not

Senses prevail

Erró, “Foodscape,” 1964

~ 1 ~

Long day outdoor feast
Hold on for ripe seasoning
I picked sour cream

~ 2 ~

Night cool dream
Doors are always open
Between two worlds

~ 3 ~

Monday’s tune
Sing along in the park
Pines wood wind up

~ 4 ~

Wings quivering
Innocent violence
Quilled Aquilegia

~ 5 ~

New glasses
Reframe reality
Thanks, God, for shades

~ 6 ~

Mercury turns direct
Gaining ground on the path
Lean not push

~ 7 ~

Add more to fill
Emotional grid

Defined in skies...

– Oer Wout - Photo Challenge #64 ~ Neeraj

We dream
Ingrown into ground
our trunks
with skeletons…

the gravity,
rumors crawl
into wind up
along the limbs…

any day
we'll get called
to carry/support
the Earth,
the planet
above our
hollow bods

just as the Earth
kept us save
many summers and falls,
defined in skies...

When June comes rattling…

~ 1 ~

Summer camp
Voices aligned with hearts
Kids & Birds

~ 2 ~

Worked his tail off
While on summer vacation
Caught fly on the wall

~ 3 ~

Climbing hills or sliding down
“You are here” sign

~ 4 ~

Construction season
Some er-roars road crossing
Stopped by fork – U turn

~ 5 ~

Chewing brown rice
Understanding emptiness
Establish true sense

~ 6 ~

Stranger on threshold
Pass over rain footwash bowl
June hot water cut

~ 7 ~

Town wakes up early
Student recital

~ 8 ~

Venus in Leo
Channel your inner Lion
Open the cage

Things after springs

Heeding Haiku With HA

Vision frantic hands –
Shake – not in the touch much more
Stained with salt/fault/ache

Pain absorbed in depth
Into trials-errors path
Strengthen heart length will.
