Title: Haiku Pieces for Peace Tag
Post by: Kay on April 13, 2012, 08:26 AM
Haiku Pieces for Peace

would like to offer a haiku thread that takes
anger, frustration, strife, whatever is negative and toxic
and get rid of it through connecting once again on a more intimate
level with nature. man--and nature

in other words, beat up on the mountain instead
of each other

hope it resonates


the mountain is high
but I can move it past me
to where there is peace

funny you should start with a mountain haiku. I was just talking to
a friend about climbing mountains.


   climbing your mounTains
   choose your mountain to conquer
   see yourself on Top

your cells cannot thrive in dark
open like a seed

when I cannot change others
nature often can

soothes the inner scars of life
panacea of fresh air

no reason to fight;
the rain is wet, lightning's bright
and the whisky's old.
