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: Medium of Exchange

on November 29, 2017

White plume of airplane
Rising high in a blue sky
Great day to travel

I have known such days
Packed with joyful adventure
Cup filled to the brim

Now I sip coffee
Watching flights from my window
Filled with gratitude

  2. I’m with you, watching, with gratitude. I’m not a great traveler

      For about twenty years I went to lots of road-less-traveled places. My last such trip was to Cuba in 2012. Now I stay close to home and find new things I never noticed or appreciated before. I watch.

    Daily I travel
    In my mind’s eyes I relish
    Beautiful life 🙂

    Yes, we have much in life to be grateful for – because our cup is always half full or more.

    The last stanza is wonderful xo

  7. The past and the present are beautiful and that is what I feel from this lovely piece. Everything has its time and place and gratitude should be given. Lovely

    Many benefits of aging are obliquely referenced here, at least in my mind. Clearly you are making the most of them!
