Haiku by Robert Stone: September and October 2010

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.

Haikuwritten by Robert Stone, September and October 2010
All who want stardom
must cast their shadows on those
who seek out their light.

- Thursday, 2 September 2010

Never loud enough,
the same as always too loud.
Silence will follow.

- Wednesday, 8 September 2010

Shadows live in light --
evidence of existence
of those casting them.

- Thursday, 9 September 2010

We all have our strings
connecting us to the source
of our creation.

- Thursday, 9 September 2010

A dollar a year
becomes better and better
as the years go on.

- Thursday, 9 September 2010

Good relationships
follow good presentations
of good intentions.

- Friday, 10 September 2010

Be kind to others
and those others will insist
strangers treat you well.

- Monday, 13 September 2010

Too old for some things,
too young for others and yet
perfect for today.

- Wednesday, 15 September 2010

After each fading
a new rainbow will appear
reforming old hope.

- Thursday, 16 September 2010

Sorry I forgot.
Late is better than never
but on time is best.

- Friday, 17 September 2010

Truly see oneself
and others may fear to see
they are much the same.

- Saturday, 18 September 2010

It's almost midnight,
new day with old meeting new,
new life beginning.

- Monday, 20 September 2010

Winter solstice child,
under full moon at Moon Run
equinox moment.

- Thursday, 23 September 2010

Orange is boldness.
No quiet waiting about
hoping for notice.

- Tuesday, 28 September 2010

Wounded and waiting
but a new year promises
better tomorrows.

- Tuesday, 5 October 2010

Each day a test comes.
Do we interact so both
feel better or worse?

- Thursday, 7 October 2010

How to wish oneself
a very happy birthday --
wait, you don't need that.

- Friday, 8 October 2010

Paying attention
to the good outside oneself
heightens one's own good.

- Saturday, 9 October 2010

Just echoes return
when I cast my heart into
outlines abandoned.

- Sunday, 10 October 2010

No facts? All used up?
And we always thought there was
infinite supply.

- Monday, 11 October 2010

Last night cow got loose.
Between then and early morn
guess someone hit it.

- Friday, 15 October 2010

Luck is the good chance
for which there is no reason
if reason exists.

- Friday, 15 October 2010

See the unseeable.
Hear the unspoken whispers.
Feel what your heart fears.

- Friday, 15 October 2010

Leaves fall unnoticed.
Most of our days pass unmarked.
Specials are needed.

- Friday, 15 October 2010

Real with others
harder than horoscope life
unreal with stars.

- Saturday, 16 October 2010

First we see some part,
later we see more details,
last we might see all.

- Saturday, 16 October 2010

What is obsession?
When one can't get any or
one can't get enough.

- Thursday, 21 October 2010

Sets change day by day.
Notes are taken year by year.
Role is guide in maze.

- Monday, 25 October 2010

Awaiting new life,
budding, leafing, producing,
awaiting more life.

- Thursday, 28 October 2010

Naked truth poet --
unobstructed art gleaned from
mind and heart and balls.

- Friday, 29 October 2010

Hallow and hollow
shadow young and remind old
the good has gone out.

- Saturday, 30 October 2010

The silent coachman
treats each the very same way
as we should have done.

- Saturday, 30 October 2010

Bright ships take their light
from hearts of those left behind
filled with reverence.

- Saturday, 30 October 2010
