Beyond

I have a poetry quest to 200 going at present, if you wish to follow its progress.

A Thousand Healing Haiku

Illumination
through curtains of devotion
opening her spiritual eyes

Her eyes look
beyond roses and thorns
their focus is the desire for dawn

Dawn understands prayers embrace
illumines inner being
With Amazing Grace

Story Boat

My haiku blog has been very quiet.  But I have decided to compose and share 200 Haiku for the bicentennial year – it’s my gift to Baha’u’llah. I will try for around 19 syllables where possible,  link them as I go and think about the significance of this year.  Wish me luck!

A Thousand Healing Haiku

This boat has a story
it carries humanity’s dreams
in future unseen

Gift – 200 Haiku for the Bicentennial, aiming for a 19 syllable structure though.

Day Dreaming

Day Dreaming 1 – By June Perkins

This week the internet just made my

creative head space feel

so cluttered and

fuzzy, out of shape and

tired.

 

I decided I need a break from the grief

the news

the despair

the massive overload of information

even its joy can seem too much and

become over the top.

 

I just needed a break to

dream and bask in the sunlight

pick daisies for the guinea pigs

listen to my children’s stories

and think about stories

to write.

 

But before I disappeared,

I spoke to some friends

on line

because I was at home writing

and they said they felt the same way too

and we shared a story or two.

 

They had been to

to walk their dogs

and bask in the sunlight.

They too felt the power of the story

the book

and the day dream.

 

When I went off line I thought

about friendship across time and space

and how

the internet creates

hives of  connecting strength

and sometimes the opposite

 

hives that sting

 

and people are seeking to create

buzz

so they can have more time to write

and authors can’t just be authors

they are being forced to be products

to sell their book

and yet the genuine are the ones we

want to read

who don’t seem like they are being a product

they are just sweet and kind

 

and then I let go . . .

 

 

I had a day dream

of space

to think

and roam

and dance and CREATE

and simply be beyond the need

for too much of

everyone else’s head spaces.
