2023 AWAKENINGS

so if my calculations are correct, i have lived nearly 15,695 days. not including, let’s say the first 5 years of non-learning aka non-consciousness, 13,870. not discounting crawling, drooling and other life (sense) experiences, all these activities are important for life and or daily living. rambling at an end.

for today, yesterday, tomorrow, a few conscious sightings Haiku.

  1. full moon–
    behind me a baby
    crawls
  2. moon phases the naked child crawls
  3. the far side
    of the moon…
    compressed diapers
  4. sickle moon–
    don’t bump your head
    on cloth diapers
  5. sickle moon–
    don’t go floating away
    cloth diaper
  6. day moon curled baby sleeps in a place
  7. sickle moon–
    sleeping side by side
    drowsy babies
  8. slight curve
    of the day moon
    sleepy baby
  9. sleeping baby
    tucked into folds…
    sickle moon
  10. full moon–
    hungry baby goes quickly
    to mum’s breast

PUEBLO MICHIGAN PART II B

snowflakes
salt pours through
the saltshaker

May blizzard —
stored salt jars
are astir

whiteout
pouring the sugar
into a bowl

the pulsating rush
of poured salt
snowy river

starry night —
white and yellow crayons
are easy to break

avalanche
plops goes the saltshaker
off the table

saltshaker
accumulating at the bottom
full moon

snowflakes…
all the saltshakers
are empty
