Tonight’s haiku: about seeking tranquility

I stand in the night 

Breathing against all my fears

Tranquility sought

Tonight I’m seeking to calm my fears. My meditations upon tranquility are focusing on actually completing things.

A Good Morning Haiku For You 

Sunlight’s debuting
Early morning darkness fades
Sounds of spring arise 


Watching the dawn inch forward inspired this haiku. I anthropomorphise the sun, imagining pride and delight as humanity stirs underneath the reborn warmth. Perhaps there’s even love for us as we reawaken our striving. 

So, here’s to a new day, it’s blessed possibilities, and all the potential you bring. 

A Meditation On Rumi

I adore Rumi. The wisdom within his poetry has long guided me. 

Within this small line: the importance of faith. Not necessarily directed toward any particular diety. Simply regarding our community. 

Our futures are unknowable until they become our past. Even then meaning slowly gets gleaned. 

I live with a dangerous mindset: desiring to understand all the ramifications of a choice before I act. This impossibility risks paralyzing me. Often, it has. Losing opportunity out of fear? That’s sad. 

I need to embrace that the way will appear when it needs to, and not a moment before. And that this way is good, it is for the best. 

Believe the unknown and uncontrollable are not reasons to hide, to wait, relegating opportunity to vapor.
