Saturday mornings
listening to On Being
Soul tiramisu.

Haiku form constrains
yet evokes mindful practice.
Choose words carefully.

Writing haiku and
sipping Darjeeling. Anti-
dotes to life's venoms.

Haiku have become
addictive. "Small, faltering
insights" sustain me. (quote from Harry Eyres, The Slow Lane column in the Financial Times)

Haiku reduces
experience as a chef
reduces a sauce.

Knowing is a ledge
with just enough room to stand
for the time being.

Moon punctuating
the pre-dawn sky. A backwards
comma. Morning pause.

John Paul Lederach
sparked New Year's Resolution.
Write daily haiku.
