Daily Haiku Winter Hawk

In this, “Daily Haiku Winter Hawk,” one feels the silence as it falls upon hands, hair, and nose.

A melting moment in, “Daily Haiku Winter Hawk,” Temporary— It speaks of weightlessness. The row of lattice wanders into standing soldiers. Wings split the morning cold. Snowflakes wander endlessly. One lands upon my nose. Warmth and cold collide. Gone— no goodbyes.

Furline boots wrap a warm blanket around toes. Steaming cup of coffee escapes into crispness. Exhaling water vapor from open mouth— Tiny droplets hung in a cloud. An ah-ha moment. Golden fingers touch.

The old field— once green.

Old man Winter sneezes white,

Screeching wings take flight.

What is Appreciation?

When you have an appreciation for something, you can see and truly understand its good qualities. One way to show your appreciation for a particularly wonderful musical performance is to give a standing ovation when it’s over.

A slightly different kind of appreciation is having good taste or the ability to see aesthetic beauty in something, like members of a wine appreciation group or the teacher of a music appreciation class. There’s also the appreciation that means a rise in monetary value—you might refer to the appreciation of the value of a house, for example.

“Life is full of choices and questions and sometimes the choices are so important or so difficult to make that they can create mental anxiety and anguish. I started meditating regularly during my studies as a student back in the early 90’s. It was a busy time and I personally found meditation a great way of sifting through the mental chatter to find meaningful answers. By using the stillness within meditation, I learned to access a more intuitive state of awareness.”

Daily Haiku: Contentment

In this, “Daily Haiku: Contentment,” and picture peaceful satisfaction.


I see more than just a water well in this picture, and Daily Haiku: Contentment. I know life hangs in the balance; color extends from vines that reach and rises to the sun. Blue resides within walls. Reflection comes in just being satisfied.

Daily Haiku: Contentment

Contentment— a well.

Within— water is drawn deep. 

Freedom— of being.

©Linda J. Wolff, and Daily Haiku: Contentment

What is contentment? One dictionary defines contentment as “the state of being mentally or emotionally satisfied with things as they are.” Today it is rare that we find anyone who is truly content with his or her condition in life. The Bible has a great deal to say about contentment—being satisfied with what we have, who we are, and where we’re going. Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?” (Matthew 6:25).

Image of Daily Haiku Blue

Daily Haiku Blue and Resolve


“Daily Haiku Blue” is a little haiku that speaks to “resolve” the daily challenges that can affect a child who’s hurting inside.

In this “Daily Haiku Blue and Resolve,” as a mother of a nine-year-old-daughter who endures the daily struggles of growing up without a father, I would be foolish not write about feelings of tender minds. I am not with her all day at school, I can’t fight her battles, but I can certainly give resolve to the emotions she can feel.

Lines crossed her forehead, anger seethed through her body language. I asked if she was ok; she claimed everything was wrong. I asked if she could write everything on paper, exactly how she felt. With each line on white canvas, the pain oozed in words. She handed me the paper, I read it. I cried. I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her into the brown comfy chair.

With each of her lines, we came to resolve that bullying isn’t nice. But how we react to it “can resolve or increase the issue immensely.” Tears flowed down fine cheek lines, a tiny body now relaxed, she looked into my eyes: ‘Mommy, I love you. I feel so much better. I held her for awhile.





Daily Haiku Blue and resolution.

Sometimes distinguished,
Sometimes not. A heart cry,
Moist, heaviness lingers.

©Linda J Wolff, and “Daily Haiku Blue.”

Image of Daily Haiku - Wild Rose

Daily Haiku: Wild Rose


In this Daily Haiku, “Wild Rose.”

A delicate daily haiku. To be is existence. Offering all that you’re and nothing in return, receive me. My being the wild rose, whose stem is barbed with thorns, whose words prick with honesty.

My silence is not of my creation. Notice of the petals and its pink hunger, the fragrance, and the sun blending under the open blue sky. That beauty, untouched. That warmth brushed away.

You might deny my impulses. You might dismiss my essence and the diversity of my form. I offer extinction, and in an offering, receive me.

A daily haiku and digital art piece for believing in true-self.


 

Daily Haiku Wild Rose:

She offers nothing.
Her beauty is boundless.
Fragrant and silent.
