frolicsome white seabirds not

covered in black oil

earth circles the sun

to bring seasonal changes

along with nestlings

no rush earth is large

no rush but soon we hear the

terminal warning

man poisons this green planet

nature’s heartbeat faint

clearcut mountaintop

loggers gone; forest gone too

the view now empty


For Stream of Consciousness Saturday, Linda G. Hill

attitude derrière/arabesque penchèe/satipaṭṭhāna

jogging is my meditation; ballet is my profession.

daily, five miles, each five hundred steps a move i must perfect using satipaṭṭhāna.

today, attitude derrière and arabesque penchèe in my romantic ballerina long tutu.


For Three Line Tales Week 120.

Haiku: Sun

the sun in clear sky

permits only quick glances

not closer study
