The Meaning of Life #Haiku

Inspired by Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)

Those who plant the trees
To grow inquisitive roots
Will never know shade

Excuse my misleading tags: WordPress is now having an invisible man hissy fit.  I cannot see or delete what I am typing for them…  hence my absence, among other things.

Snow Arc #Haiku

Black frigid snow stares
Streaming arctic fountain floes
Fur lines the tundra

Arctic hunter’s bow
January’s polar child
Invisible spear

I am a fox
I am January
I am a polar child
I am snow

Distant voles quiver
Magnetic sense tickles ears
I can hear you

Stop Pampering #Haiku

 

Mining in Kailo

Smoky pearlised dreams
Mink contours set in zircon
Priceless synergy?

Notification brings me in

I’m apparently celebrating  three years of WordPress, which also means, I am reminded of the reason for my blog and the bare, three years without my dad.  But, please, when you find yourself there, do not despair;  remember that life happens.  It is what it is.  Enjoy your life, regardless.  I know he would be thrilled that I have embraced more than he ever saw as an inclination within me.  I got married.  I continued to write, became published, even became the activist in word and deed.  He always saw that, but I did not.

I don’t have it in me at present to write.  I could reblog, but for me, that doesn’t always  matter.   What does matter is that the souls of the young are not tarnished, not disillusioned by life in whatever form it manifests.   I can just ask from experience that you – love it, live it, create, and be your best to help this world and those that inhabit it.  We are ALL sentient beings with feelings.  To that end, we must campaign, build a better life for us and those without a voice.  We need to campaign,  petition and nag our political parties to eradicate endless suffering of us and our animal counterparts.   We should not be allowed to rule with impunity… simply because we can!  Climate change is real as is death and taxes.  Learn from it.  Use it.  If only to leave behind common decency.
