05 Feb – 11 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.

February 5-11:

The right position.
Wise and not blinded by greed,
events develop.

Harmony is there.
Times of misfortune happen.
Keep patience, know faith.

Embrace the changes.
Articulate consensus,
the outline of life.

A body walking.
Balance care and compassion.
Walk. No worry. Act.

Ordinary truths.
Human potential opened.
Understood within.

Walking, listening.
Understand the dynamic,
the sublime constant.

A simple spirit
strengthens lessons of water.
The secret meanings.
