Haiku by Robert Stone, written January and February 2011

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 H Stone: iam@bellsouth.net


Haiku
written by Robert Stone, January and February 2011
Cheers of the unseen
ring louder in heart and mind
than chants of the scene.

- Saturday, 1 January 2011


Refresh yourself.
No napping for the weary
More expressing self.

- Sunday, 2 January 2011


Even long life blessed
leaving is always sadness
for those left behind.

- Tuesday, 4 January 2011


We are our life's scars
some more visible to us
some more to others.

- Wednesday, 5 January 2011


Those who ignore past
can be forgiven but not
those who change the past.

- Thursday, 6 January 2011


Answers: pick and choose.
Truth is not in outward shows.
Questions: learn and live.

- Saturday, 8 January 2011


God gives and takes back.
The better gift may well be
what he takes away.

- Saturday, 8 January 2011


Sometimes no answers.
Do what can and needs to be.
Sometimes no questions.

- Tuesday, 11 January 2011


Life in, stories out.
Memories wander about.
It's Just Me Again.

- Wednesday, 19 January 2011


Too much statusing
soon convinces one there is
all chaff and no grain.

- Friday, 21 January 2011


I will just believe
a real nice blanket of snow.
I don't have to touch.

- Friday, 21 January 2011


Wonderful one needs
experienced or learning
next more wonderful.

- Sunday, 23 January 2011


Another closing
dreams past and now dreams to come
another opening.

- Saturday, 29 January 2011


Brokenness incites
helpers to soothe their own needs
by rejoining the bits.

- Monday, 31 January 2011


Another lap down.
Another year in the books.
Another life chance.

- Tuesday, 8 February 2011


Relationships, check.
Decisions, to wish you well.
Communication.

- Tuesday, 8 February 2011


No justice timely --
justice denied or delayed --
no justice at all.

- Thursday, 10 February 2011


Not just for today
but for all days glad wishes
celebrate your birth.

- Friday, 11 February 2011


To lie or to lay
either might be good today
but I lay I lie.

- Saturday, 12 February 2011


To see past clearly,
to see present very best,
to see future bright.

- Thursday, 17 February 2011


It's that time again
to scout out a new year's plan
along your life's trail.

- Monday, 21 February 2011
