Heeding Haiku

rainbows undulate

rhythm and flow in droplets

don’t wipe the counter

From Chevrefeuille:

“The Arousal of Intuition (The Water Exercise)

Make a puddle of water on a smooth, nonabsorbent surface. Look into the puddle for a while. Then, begin to play with it, without any particular commitment or objective. Make designs that mean absolutely nothing. Do this exercise for a week, allowing at least ten minutes each time. Don’t look for practical results from this exercise; it is simply calling up your intuition, little by little. When this intuition begins to manifest itself at other times of the day, always trust in it.

Try this exercise and see what it will bring you …

Here is my attempt to write a haiku after this inspiring exercise:

blossoms fall
entering the realm of the clouds
muddy puddles

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. one can see and feel the largeness of things in their apparent smallness. love the practical line, “don’t wipe the counter”. like a painter’s canvas.

  2. I have crystals in most of my windows so when the sun shows itself… I get rainbows on the counters, walls and floors and the ceiling too.
    My counter actually has some sparkle in it so when the light or rainbow is on it – there is an extra twinkle 🙂
