Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Recycling Energy

on March 17, 2017

A little brown box
Arrived at my door smiling
Oh goodie! it’s here

Got scissors unwrapped
The new book that I ordered
I’ll have a good read

But first a duty
For healthy environment
I must recycle

Cutting with scissors
Dismembering brown cardboard
Workout for muscles

    Like the connection and the delayed gratification

    Poetry is like recycling. One must melt down words and reform them into a new container.

    Would love a review of the book you received. Sounds interesting and timely!

      I have to come clean. The box contained Neutrogena face moisturizer. My Haiku was all about the “smiling” Amazon box it came in and the wrestling I had to do to recycle the box. The book was poetic license. 🙂

    PS. The next smiling box I received did contain a book, “If the Oceans Were Ink – An Unlikely Friendship and a Journey to the Heart of the Quran” by Carla Power . I begin an eight week study of it in a Living Room Learning class tomorrow night.

  11. Love this! Reminded me of when a new package from Amazon used to arrive 🙂
