04 Mar – 10 Mar 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.

March 04-10:

Flowing momentum.
A glorious crescendo.
Feel your perfect grace.

The subtle effort.
To benefit attention.
Such simple success.

Shimmering pattern.
Wisdom cycles perpetuate.
Express not knowing.

Circle the center.
Follow simplification.
Pure inner person.

The revolving earth.
Intelligent harmony.
Generate action.

One cooperates.
Encourage integration.
Ultimate rewards.

Solitary life.
Far beyond encumbrances.
This way, never fear.
