Haiku pair

these windscreen wipers
accelerate as i do-
driving summer rain

it’s mizzling wet
the horizon is closer-
diamond strung wash line

Mandala 5

Native American Indian Mandala

Love
feelings
seed to tree
raindrops, sunbeams
all these things
take time
Life.

Mandala 4


Native American Indian Mandala

Honeysuckle hedgerow
tumbling water
scented roses
senses delight.

Colours simply
tinted, blended
miracles, magic,
creation, love.

Marble buddha
touch so cooling
shady corners
new mown grass.

Herbs aromatic
texture, growth
miracles, magic
creation, love.

Family, friends,
neighbours, colleagues
children, parents.
Love is all.

Hear them
feel them
they are miracles.
THIS IS LIFE.

Elaine Morris (c) July 2016.

QUOTE –
So manifold are the wonders of creation that this beauty will never end.
Creation is present (here), it is present (here), right now, in you, has always been there.
The world is miracle.
The world is magic.
The world is love.
And it is here, right now.

Mandala 3

Native American Indian Mandala
Many pathways
choose carefully,
smooth and
rougher ground,
tread slowly.

Be patient
with yourself.
—-
It is
your life.
Spread your
own wings.
Fly free
without anxiety.

Trust yourself.

Quote –
There is more than one path leading to life after life, there is more than one path to love, there is more than one path to find the other half of the self in another human being, there is more than one way to fight the enemy.

Mandala 2


Native American Indian Mandala

Wisdom belongs
to learners.

Oak tree
to acorn,
acorn to
oak. Father
to son.

Quote –
Wisdom does not belong to a single human being. We have to act wisely, but wisdom does not belong to anybody. It is the revelation of old proven ideas and we obtain it when generation after generation explores the laws of nature.

Mandala 1

Native American Indian Mandala

Life is
rain, sunlight
and belief.

This moment,
this chance
to breathe
and live.

Quote –
What is life?
It lights up like a firefly at night.
It passes like the breath of the
buffalo in winter.
It is like a brief shadow rushing over
the grass and disappearing at sun set.

CROWFOOT, BLACKFOOT

Leaf haiku

Detached leaf falling
Swirling spinning like minds lost
Needing an anchor

A small yellow leaf
Flutters from the silver birch-
Brimstone butterfly

Leafing for today
Through the colour oracle-
Violet for peace

Leaf rolled chrysalis
Camoflaged till transition-
A change in life’s path

Relieving the stress
Fingers dance through slender leaves
English lavender

Leaf mould composting
Brings death to life returning-
Reincarnation

(used in Leaf poem)

Scented Reminder

the scent of summer
a privet hedge in flower-
yesterdays ginnels

Cloudy sky bunting
