Mindfulness Challenge Day 30 Haiku--Morning Meditation

Thoughts upon thoughts surface during meditation...who ever said meditation is silent?

Morning Meditation

Sitting in silence
My thoughts keep me company
Like a mosquito

Mindfulness Challenge Day 29 Haiku -- Life Stories

Musing on what one's narrative means...does it have to be written? How does it change and how do we change by telling our stories? Does the listener change? 

Life Stories

Thinking of stories
Narratives that define us
How do we share them

Mindfulness Challenge Day 28 Haiku -- Boston Strong

As Boston emerged from an historic snowstorm, which dumped over two feet of snow in less than 24 hours over parts of Greater Boston, the resilience of its residents became apparent. A lone figure carefully and symbolically shoveled the finish line of the Boston Marathon...yes, we are Boston Strong!


Boston Strong

Only in Boston
The finish line is shoveled
We are Boston Strong

Mindfulness Challenge Day 27 Haiku -- Juno Arrives

The Blizzard of 2015, named Juno, came calling here in Massachusetts last night and predictions are it will contine to snow throughout today. The landscape looks surreal, reminiscent of scenes from the movie Dr Zhivago. I am grateful to be safe and warm inside; simply observing the magic of nature.

Blizzard called Juno
Blankets of snow cover all
Magic of nature
