The Daily Haiku

A world of five - seven - five. At one time daily, now kind of sporadic.

Into the river
Constant flow of the water
The shallows deepen

Wading and watching
A shadow breaks the surface
And my line goes out

Slowly drift on by
My fake, floating tied mayfly
Will the fish strike it?

Romanesque Ideals
Create the perfect figure
In Holy Aspect

Paint it as it is
The truth in nature and man
No embellishment

Flee Reality
Embrace the Fantastic view
While dreams take their form

Emotion is All
Reaction to awareness
Of our existence

Artist's interpretation
Of our condition

Too long to let that
Ancient spirit pass me by
Whisper in the wind

And the crow might fly
Under billowing white clouds
Whirling through the sky

Seeking for a roost
In trees long thought to be dead
Yet their flowers bloom

Mixing shades of red
Against angled and brown bark
This birds's quiet 'stead

Rest the back upon
The trunk of that sleeping tree
Feel the earth below

Yearning to be free
From what rivers there may be
Running to the sea
