01 Apr – 07 Apr 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.

April 1-7:

Effortless focus.
Satisfaction well-being.
Achieve certainty.

Perceive what we know,
the meaningful dividend.
Try something humble.

Self-cultivation.
Moments in life every day.
Comfort momentum.

The deepest questions.
Oriented sacredness.
Divine inner strength.

Change, constant in time.
The movement of devotion.
Reaffirm one’s quest.

Patient comforting.
A friend to give us guidance.
Our encouragement.

Fundamental friends
walk without obligation.
Knowledge freely shared.
