Even without snow…let go

In our upside down Spring, March felt like May, April goes out like a lion and in these last chilly moments, a haiku from Halcyon Days…



all brave walls fall down

letting go is a circle

at last the snow melts


Happy Holiday Supermoon

This one and the next two full moons are called “supermoons” because they are so close to the earth…big, bright, beautiful, bountiful…

and a perfect opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to all my Beloved Backers by posting the Kickstarter Hall of Fame on this website – click on ‘About the Book’ where their names are carved in cyberspace stone…with Love.


Half Full Moon

Is the moon half full or half empty?

Always the optimist, the moon is in fact waxing…

and on this final day of March, a haiku from Halcyon Days.



smell the earth turn

pressing her breasts to the sun

she shrugs off winter’s kiss

Buster’s Nap & Garden Dreams

Yes, this is mighty late as the full moon has surely waned…still in the spirit of compassion for self and generosity to all, I offer two new haiku


       Buster’s Nap

watch my red cat breathe

slow belly rise belly fall

who takes care of who?


      Garden Dreams

squat down in the yard

smell of mud and first flowers

sweet ache of new life

Kind of Blue Moon

This post is beyond overdue for last week’s full moon, still, I trusted my intuition and waited to post my February haiku from Halcyon Days…



you scoff at Valentines

chocolate hearts

not the only ones to melt




Happy Lunar New Year

The Tao Te Ching has been one of my great inspirations for…well, probably lifetimes. Here’s an excerpt from a  favorite translation by Stephen Mitchell.

Being and non-being create each other.

Difficult and easy support each other.

Long and short define each other.

High and low depend on each other.

Before and after follow each other.


Therefore the Master

acts without doing anything

and teaches without saying anything.

Things arise and she lets them come;

things disappear and she lets them go.

She has but doesn’t possess,

acts but doesn’t expect.

When her work is done, she forgets it.

That is why it lasts forever.
