regardless – Shadorma

Random Purely

regardless
of consequences
acknowledged
concession
a willingness to accept
repeated mistakes

Using a photo from my WP Media Library, this is my seventeenth shadorma for Eliot Dybden’s Shadorma November (ShaNov) at Along the Interstice. A shadorma has six lines with no rhyme or meter, except for a syllable structure of 3/5/3/3/7/5.

This haiku couplet is in response to Haiku Review Challenge by The Secret Keeper. The short film offered for review is a trailer for Megan Harrison: Complexity of Scale by Walley Films, found on Vimeo.

Half-light

Half-light

In your last moments,
you might think it years,
this wait to see him again.
For him it is but a moment,
or perhaps a lingering sunset,
waiting in that half-light
until you are by his side
for your walk together
into the long night.

This is my response to Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Seventeen (each day a new Yeats quote).

“The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light”
W.B. Yeats


 

suspenseful – Shadorma

Unspoken

suspenseful
anticipation
regarding
climactic
events beyond our control
procrastination

Rise!

 

Rise!

What of our children and the challenge
they face, this world we have graced
with such darkness? Will they follow our lead
and foster the hate that grows, or shed
this weight we’ve placed on their shoulders?
Will the timid rise to right these wrongs
before they, too, are the disadvantaged?

This is my response to Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Sixteen (each day a new Yeats quote).

“Do you not hear me calling, white deer with no horns?”
W.B. Yeats

Occasionally, we should remind ourselves of a quote referring to the I Ching that I read today in a blog by Kerfe, at Method Two Madness:
“Do not think at the moments when you see no light that there is no light at all.”
