is the messsge so I focus on the that rather than the messenger and the frailties that keeps peeking through

seeking a closer relationship with God



In respone  to  Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt:
Tokubetsudesu #50 one-bun

……. The one-bun is an ultra-short haibun which has just one line of prose (including the title) and a (one-line) haiku. I will give an example of this one-bun written by Jim himself.

The light

of the most distant stars, which describes for us the size and age of the universe, won’t reach us for aeons, leaving us to imagine …

dark space the red shift of my mind

Departing Summer

departing summer
cool days are staying longer
leaves are on notice



Inspired by:

a shriveled leaf
still hanging on
to summer’s end

end of summer
beyond the garden gate
mist turning to rain

end of summer
in the cool morning air
at the open door

end of summer
tall and bright in the fields
of thistle

summer passing
the path to the beach
where no one goes

(C) Jane Reichhold

abandoned beach
finally I can find peace
summer has gone

Post in response to Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt: Departing Summer



a welcome retreat –
only sounds rustle of leaves
and voices from pages


Inspired by

closing the garden
no one to disturb my thoughts –
