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.

written by Robert Stone, March and April 2011
If only one night,
make it a very good night
until the next one.

- Tuesday, 1 March 2011

Trust the whole body,
practice the unknown with zea
land dance will flow forth.

- Monday, 7 March 2011

Awareness is all.
Time never marches along.
Perception makes all.

- Friday, 11 March 2011

Between two events
there is no amount of time,
there is only space.

- Friday, 11 March 2011

Seeming does not change
when nothing can be measured.
Silence has no degrees.

- Sunday, 13 March 2011
Growth occurs uneven.
Present and future mingle,
Past layers persist.
- Wednesday, 30 March 2011

Out of our hands means
our creator's hands hold fast
beyond earthly sight.

- Thursday, 31 March 2011

Stages await sets.
Birthdays showcase attractions
going and coming.

- Friday, 1 April 2011

Step right up, step up.
See the amazing present
as years march by.

- Friday, 1 April 2011

Thinking about you
less and less and more and more
all at the same time.

- Thursday, 14 April 2011

Good sense of humor
and all things a little strange
make lovely birthdays.

- Thursday, 14 April 2011

Another bus stop,
never to be seen again,
never seen before.

- Friday, 15 April 2011

Karma resolves all
but we may be unhappy
with the solution.

- Monday, 18 April 2011

It's that day again,
riding earth around the sun
back where you started.
- Saturday, April 23, 2011
Pondering anew
another carol of joy
for another year.
- Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Unkindest are cuts
of taunting and tainting words
which mind almost hides.

- Thursday, 28 April 2011

Kiss the truth and turn
hateful words into frog forms
skin seen, voice unheard.

- Thursday, 28 April 2011

Be second taster,
after irrefutable proof
first is still alive.

- Saturday, April 30, 2011
