This is the first week I've fallen behind. I'll try to make it up with two haiku this week.
What a week it was. What a harsh, sad week. Not to dwell too much but this was a week of madness (in one case tragic). Which pulls everything into silence. And it wasn't simply me, but the accumulation of stories from my friends and my own sad encounter with the unreasonable (and an unrelated health drama).
I remember my one attempt to write out the positive, but it was so bittersweet I couldn't even touch it. Even that felt too sad.
The Prompt: Dealing With Loss, Part 2
Again this week's prompt comes from the Zen by the Brush book by Myoshi Nancy O'Hara.
"The spring flowers, the autumn moon;
Summer breezes, winter snow.
If useless things do not clutter your mind,
You have the best days of your life."
And again, first task is to sit for a meditation on that for 5-10 minutes or however long you feel is good to you.
...inspired by my drawing:
Growing pink to green to brown.
Growing up to fall.
Not much to say for this one. Just walking through it.
There you go...
