Notes found on the refrigerator February 2016

21 Feb

(On The Haiku Corner)

Leafless oak branches

Shadow­ green pines in darkness

Silhouette full moon


Oh moon, so steady

In my inconsistent life,

Teach me morning light


Sunshine melts the earth

Frozen heart begins to thaw

Speechless in action


A Chaotic life

forgiven in fertile soil

flower has to bloom

    A magical poem – made me stop and think how the moon is constant and the sun varies in its light and intensity – thank you for that alone!

    Oh moon, so steady

    In my inconsistent life,

    Teach me morning light

    those were wonderful lines

    love the sense of regeneration your lines carry.and asking the moon to teach morning light was a nice touch.

    teach me morning light – there are many lessons we learn in will be a full moon tomorrow and I hope to get a glimpse of it’s radiant glow.

    I too am thankful for the steadiness of the moon. Everything else in this election year seems to be chaotic!

    Oh moon, so steady
    In my inconsistent life,
    Teach me morning light

    Can’t tell you how much I loved this one! The last line is a stunner.

    I feel the power of coming spring in your haiku despite the refrigerator’s power…

    Oh we can so much from the moon. Though it appears in the darkness, it definitely CAN teach us about light.

    I love these, especially “teach me morning light.” Love the thawing of the frozen heart and “flower has to bloom.” Yes, it does! Bloom on, fellow pilgrim!

    Where to start….each line sings to me…it seems we both are inspired by nature and the sky.

    ‘Teach me morning light’ Yes so much we can learn from that morning light!

    In the end the bloom will come and chaotic life will be rewarded.
