trees crowned with glory

still pond, the jealous lover,

reflects autumn’s dance

calm after storm

In April i wrote about how my spring seemed delayed this year. With summer came, finally, a return to rhythm, a settling in to ordinariness after a crisis. At such times the mundane is very welcome.

Arriving at the other side of a crisis — whether a medical one, relational, financial or otherwise — means discovering how much of it will stay with you, and how much of it you can truly move beyond. The damage is done — the healing is not. I’ve decided that the scars i bring along into the future do not need to define me. They are significant, but they are not the most significant thing about me.

You know how when you’re looking for a song video, some of them have the lyrics superimposed over the images?  I like to think of the cancer recovery as text i choose to scroll behind the trees…

TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Oil

Meet La Vie Est Trop Courte Pour Boire du Mauvais Vin!

(comments disabled, please visit original page)

Life is too short to drink bad wine

Old Victorian decanters can still be found for surprisingly little at markets. These simply cut shaft and globe decanters hold our olive oil and vegetable oil. It is rather nice using them every day.

3 lessons that writing haiku taught me about business

Now this is practical and creative application of writing to life. Super creative post! Never read anyone using haikus to relate to business. Enjoyed immensely!

Business in Rhyme

Clouds come from time to time-

and bring a men chance to rest

from looking at the moon.

~ Basho

Poetry is a mindfulness in its most exquisite form. It is integral part of human nature and therefore is a sort of celebration of life in all its manifestations. Especially haiku, an “instant” form of poetry, focusing on the world around us and fostering each moment of life.

As a form of poetry, haiku originated first in Japan and later became popular in other regions. Haiku poets write short poems, consisting of only 17 syllables. In Japan these poems are valued for their simplicity, openness, depth and lightness.

  • similes and metaphors are avoided
  • refers to a season of the year.

Haiku poems can describe anything, but mostly they are a…
