Color Haiku

the slippery blue whale

feels the tides of the green sea

hear his soulful calls

Hamish brought a quiz to us to determine our method of learning. It seems that I am spread out pretty evenly between being a visual, auditory and kinesthetic learner though I favor learning by doing. Here is Chevrefeuille’s inspiration:

waterfall of colors
leaves whirl through the street –
departing summer 

deep silence

sunbeams breaking through the water –
the silence deepens

colorful leaves
everywhere I look … autumn –
Ah! that sweet perfume

through the open window
riding along with the cold winter wind
the scent of Forsythia

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. I think of those large whales down in the sea of cortez who come close to boats of friendly eco-tourists and the whale either lets him/herself be petted, even showing off their young.
