Haiku: Holy Breath, States Matter, Dove, Pinwheel

Four modern, mystical haiku. They may not hold to the true Japanese form of beautiful, brief poetry. But they are written to be spiritual and about nature – sometimes the natural world, sometimes human nature. Like my
Limericks collection,
these are reminders of Cosmic Consciousness or God.

Holy Breath

Taking your first breath
Birth, love you don’t remember
Still what’s true is true

States Matter

Solid, liquid, gas
Ice, Water, steam; earth, sea, sky
Energy transforms

Dove

Coo, coo, soft and sweet
The dove soars, strong, free, complete
That Spirit is yours

Pinwheel

Spinning sun with rays
A beanstalk from Earth to Sky
WHIRRR! The first pinwheel
