Impressions while lumbering along, 1/6/2016

Posted on: January 6, 2017

112.
Lumbering in the freezing cold
Suffering to myself
About stinging fingertips
When I see
There is moss in a chink
Of an old stone wall
A tiny patch of brilliant green
Luxuriant like velour
Amid the craggy drab

In the moment before
Everything felt hard and raw
But like what Dorothy saw
Peeking out of her fallen house
This technicolor fuzziness
Reminds me that
Miracles happen
And the exuberance for life
Will always find a way

111.
Haiku are jewels
Wee, focused contemplations
Where small things are big

110.
A house is a shell
Empty ’til what you put in
Will make it a home

Or is a home more
Than just a shell for your stuff
It’s where you belong
