Shaman Haiku

Red-tailed Hawk

I close my eyes

my spirit soars above 

one with the hawk

Chevrefeuille and Hamish are guiding us this time to write shaman haiku. Hamish wrote an essay about synesthesia (the mixing of sensory experiences) and mystical experiences very eloquently and Chevrefeuille responded with these:

resonating drums
the five saints … impressive beauty
spirit world opens

whispering leaves
telling all wisdom of the steppes –
cry of an eagle

And a cascading haiku:

lying down on my back
watching the deep blue night sky –
feeling my spirit

feeling my spirit
wishing to be free forever
like an eagle

like an eagle
free and high in the blue sky
my Inner Path

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.
