Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Medium of Exchange

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

Haiku: Best Part of Waking Up

Summer dawning sounds
Birds begin the melody
Background locusts buzz

Whistling kettle shrills
Morning paper lands with thud
Coffee time complete

Haiku: Good Morning, Wednesday

Candle light flickers
Empty coffee cup still warm
Meditation done

Haiku: Elemental Partners

Earth air water fire
Basic elements surround
While I mediate

Candle flame and air
Unite, earth feeds potted plant
Thriving green nearby

Hot water coffee
Stirred, make brew to waken me
Prayers reach heavenward

Symphony of Old and New

The cooling AC softly whirs
New day’s light shining through the trees
Creates a lacy pattern on warm brick wall
Outside my window.

Flame of small red candle flickers
Smell and taste of coffee steaming
Tick of clock hanging on the wall
Companions to begin my morning.

Every day for many years it has been so
Today there’s something new.
Leaf of philodendron on the table by my side
Has on its tip one crystal water drop.
