I’m Still Here Haiku

Well, there’s no question it’s been more than a long time since I wrote anything on my blog. And even with that said, I’ll save writing about what I’ve been up to, my family, the Coronavirus, and all that stuff for another day. Truth is, with all this working from home I have a little more time to do stuff like this, so hopefully you have a moment to read these little guys. Full disclosure, these haiku were written back in October of 2019, but as I was reading over them to select which to include in my post, some of them appeared almost eerily prescient or at the very least far too .timely. Anyway, enjoy, thanks for reading and wash your hands. I wish you peace and good health.

Namaste,

Jason

It’s hard to stay sane
In a world gone truly mad,
Where nothing’s normal.

5231
There will come a day
When the nations of the world
Unify in love.

5232
How shall we proceed,
In anger and bitterness
Or forgiveness?

5233
That which flourishes
Will diminish tomorrow
While we ride the waves.

5234
Que sera sera
Is such a Buddhist notion.
What will be will be.

Here is our kitten, Ickasik, (Icky for short) demonstrating social distancing by taking up all available room on the bed.

Don’t let them make you
Dream any size less than big.
Small is not enough.

5237
Don’t give up the ship!
Plug the leak and head for shore.
You’re unsinkable.

5238
Be magnanimous.
Kindness, forgiveness, and grace;
That’s what it’s about.

5239
Just once I’d like to
Be like my cat: no worries,
Sleeping in a sink.

5241
We have yet to fight,
Live, love, prosper, grow, transform
To our potential.

Here is Quicktop assisting me in getting fresh air into the house and any germs out by falling asleep in the open window for five hours. He and his sister are very helpful.
