Seamlessly

After Contentment and Contentment II, I’m kinda hooked on haiku…

 

Seamlessly

Daughter packs her bags
to fly with her school choir
she doesn’t need me

we go for coffee
she drives with big sunglasses
to the drop off point

I give her a kiss
and hand her fifty dollars
she leaves seamlessly

seamlessly

Contentment II

The starting point for today’s NaPoWriMo poem was actually a moment of dis-content. When I caught myself, I reached in my mind for the poem I posted the other day, Contentment, and just started rewriting it based on my present moment. The process totally transformed my mindset. Feel free to borrow the title and first line and write you own present moment.

 

Contentment II

what more could I want?
a sunny room to lie in
a fish tank bubbling

prayer beads in my hand
a God to whom I can pray
just by being still

Contentment

 

Today’s NaPoWriMo poem was inspired by today’s Zen Habits post on finding Contentment. This poem, comprised of two haiku, was written in situ. Enjoy.

Contentment

What more could I want?
The sun shines through a pink tree.
A cardinal sings.

The sky breathes on me.
A petal lands on my arm.
I do not move it.
