ORIENTAL MEDICINE

ORIENTAL MEDICINE

A haiku or two
raindrops are falling outside
outside of time

A haiku or two
a day risks loss in doing
a friend drops by

A haiku or two
Van Gogh paints in Japanese
starry, starry, night

A haiku or two
a geisha now beside me
pillow on her back

A haiku or two
politics and bad news fade
cycle is longer

A haiku or two
calming the winds of the mind
stilling the waters

A haiku or two
a walk taken with eyes open
is a workshop

Brief the touch
heals receiver, sender too
a Reiki haiku

The moon is full
the Mayan calendar turns
blossoming begins

Life is a haiku
simpler deeper than we know
rhymes between the lines

LONG HOT SASKATCHEWAN SUMMER SHORT POEMS

LONG HOT SASKATCHEWAN SUMMER SHORT POEMS

Hay bales pile
the sun stays to watch
will evening come

_____________________

Plow breaks again
metal too hot to touch
will evening come

_____________________

Girl in summer dress
more heat inside than out
fall is soon coming

_____________________

Beer is all gone
road weaves our way home
morning comes soon

_____________________

Sun rises at four
bones store summer heat
winter days are short

_____________________

Waiting for the crop
rain or hail, God decides
in the pub, politics

_____________________

Stopping for water
dry eyes turn westward
reading the clouds

_____________________

The farmer complains
gratitude too much like pride
outside the rain falls
