The Load This Wall Bears – a Haiku

Vase of Flowers on a Ledge

The load this wall bears –
easily mistaken as
flowers in a vase.

Forth I Go Whither I Walk

Today, in sunlight,
I stand just beyond the path;
but for a locked gate,
onwards I’d have run!…and yet…
forth I go whither I walk.

PCH from Overpass

Cars blur down the lanes,
speeding through the PCH,
bypassing stillness.

Only Then

Perhaps life isn’t so straightforward
and plans change or changed for you
but you’re nudged nonetheless towards
something nameless but necessary
and so you follow, sometimes willingly,
or perhaps not, and if so
life will always return you to this fated place
until all the fruit’s picked
and the field grows fallow and only then can you
leave for other spaces.

Speeding Across

Speedy little car
flashes across the Bixby.
Monumental trust.

Bixby Creek Bridge

 

Inspired by a visit to Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur, CA and posted as a response to the Daily Prompt: Too Big To Fail (I only ran with the title of the prompt…)

Last week I hiked on a whim,
choosing a trail just above the sea.
I passed gulls gossiping like old men
and jumped crags deeper than a tall me
while the wind capered across the water
and light danced about the waves with glee.
Diverted, I worried the journey would end too soon,
but on rounding the bend, I found eternity.

Waltzing Weeds

Birds crow in triumph –
even weeds waltz in the sun.
Garden after rain.

Lamplight

Sun falls and light fades.
Lamp’s lambent glow beckons home;
night concedes for now.

A Moment in Time – a Haiku

Landing

Winds rush through the plane
jumpmaster thumbs a signal.
Shuffle to freefall.

Chutes in the Clouds

 

Posted for Throwback Thursday and in response to the Daily Prompt: A Moment in Time. In memory of G.H., oorah.
