29 Jan – 04 Feb 2020 – Daily Haiku

Each day in 2020, I’m adapting that day’s entry from the book “365 Tao: Daily Meditations” into a haiku. I’m doing this, though, following the structure of “Blackout Poetry.” I darken the words I’m not using and highlight those I am, thus allowing my haiku to emerge from the page. At the end of each seven day period, I post the previous seven as a string of haikus.

January 29-February 4:

Become soft within.
Spirit is cultivation.
Healing communion.

Simple is complex.
Layers of meaning deny.
Be open, reflect.

Embody context.
Balance feelings, emotions.
Center our strong lives.

Sincere poetry.
Written to any seeker.
Guidance all the time.

Populate delight.
Answer the treasured virtues.
You value learning.

The nature of grace.
Nonaction is engagement.
Receive happiness.

Engage your nature,
harness natural forces.
There, true harmony.
