Haiku written July and August 2010 by Robert Stone

Dear Reader,

Another two months have rolled by and here are the recent haiku. All of them were written as comments on comments or on status notes or on photographs or on blog posts or in responses to emails. If you are really curious as to what caused me to write one of these, send me a note and I'll let you know. -Robert Stone

written by Robert Stone, July and August 2010
I want to be right,
I want to be wrong as well,
I want everything.

- Thursday, 15 July 2010

What I really like?
What I am doing right now.
What else could I like?

- Wednesday, 21 July 2010

Wishes for birthdays
should not be substitutes for
ignoring the years.

- Thursday, 29 July 2010

The wise fear updates
and leave well enough alone
but others love change.

- Thursday, 29 July 2010

So far, yet so near
rainbow colors fade away
windchimes wish for wind.

- Sunday, 1 August 2010

Reject all limits,
Seize all possibilities,
Adapt all sharings.

- Wednesday, 4 August 2010

If I had my ifs,
my world would be too much me,
surprises would cease.

- Thursday, 5 August 2010

Fate has one promise:
that both sooner and later
you will be surprised.

- Friday, 6 August 2010

All things rise and fall;
hold fast the rise and embrace
the joy of living.

- Thursday, 12 August 2010

A little whining
is much better than silence
when one feels ignored.

- Thursday, 12 August 2010

Black is the new white,
rainbow hues have disappeared,
truth is still hidden.

- Thursday, 12 August 2010

The preposition
following "to work" will make
all the difference.

- Thursday, 12 August 2010

With fear and trembling
but no resistance I'll taste
the perfected cookie.

- Thursday, 12 August 2010

Encourage others
and soothing droplets of hope
will fall on yourself.

- Tuesday, 17 August 2010

Stand in your own light
and others, seeing your truth,
will draw near or flee.

- Friday, 20 August 2010

Thieves may steal copies
of creations of one's hands
but one's heart is safe.

- Wednesday, 25 August 2010

All created me
by revelations from which
I created all.

- Thursday, 26 August 2010

Let us count the years.
The past to the present speaks.
Anno G.A.M.

- Friday, 27 August 2010 (birthday comment on friend with initials GAM)

If beyond thinking,
then incomprehensible
and beyond knowing.

- Sunday, 29 August 2010

High stars to low star:
We are always here for you
special day or not.
