Day ends in dark grey
a silver setting for this
emerald city

More found poetry. Remember these?

1.
Miss Muffet, vegan now,
Eats her cruelty-free bean curd
Peacefully buddhist.
 
2.
Mamma's lasagna
reinvented with tofu
healthy comfort food
 
3.
tiny tofu cubes
with miso and green onion
swimming in hot broth
 
4.
cold, sweet, and creamy
dessert after a fine meal
who knew? it's tofu!
 
5.
Freeze-dried, shelf-safe blocks
Merky can't read the kanji
Kai attempts to help
 
6.
Even Thai food
tastes better when ordered with
veges and tofu.
 
7.
Sizzling dim sum
deep fried, hot, golden pillows
Oh! My mouth waters!
 
8.
Silken tofu
becomes a chocolate pie
with no leftovers.
 
9.
Her domestic love:
a humble legume transformed
not a bean gone bad.
 
10.
Ice-box almost bare
block of tofu, curry paste
I have my dinner
 
11.
That 80's icon
Sponsoring low-fat cooking
I pity the 'fu.

to update Library Thing

the wheel rolls around
without breaking butterflies
luck my fate this time
butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (Default)
dance in a circle
traditional rhythm
booming drums echo

drums like old dragons
koi in and out of shadow
voice of ancient things

song of grain planted
a seed already growing
vigor of new life

buying spring dresses
not out of trust in weather
but optimism

limited choices
stress tests performed on patience
tensile strength measured
butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (Default)
prediction of gray
phone shows the icon for rain
warm sun and breezes


It slipped past me until now that it is National Poetry Month.
butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (wing)

because you are gone
where and with whom unexplained
so too, the ice cream
butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (Falls)
pain is a message
healing will come afterward
from understanding

Tribe doesn't seem to want to post my musings. I just realized that on Tribe, one must always "submit". {grin} Perhaps I am being too assertive.

The fine line is the mirror's edge )

Happy, happy, happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] coffeedaiv!

happy birthday dear
my haiku friend miles away
have some cake tonight
butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (Default)
Once upon a time
When I was a butterfly
I dreamed of chaos

I gave up my wings
Or, really, my hope of them
I dreamed of changes

Both water and fire
I dream of pretty things now
Like friendship and love

Cocktails and good food
And kindness and honesty
Books for me to read

Singing if I wish
Creating beauty in beads
And writing haiku

With or without wings
No one takes the sky from me
Or my waiting smile

A day of rainfall
the sun, a cloud-hidden seed
Light growing anew


Happy first day of winter!
butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (Snow [Jill Johansen])
She with eyes downcast
Still finds beauty at her feet
knowing how to See


This morning, feeling that a long-ish walk would do me good, I walked to work along the waterfront instead of waiting for my connecting bus. By the trolley stop, I noticed a bit of polished purple in the dirt, which turned out to be an amethyst bead. It had friends.

Someone must have broken a necklace or a bracelet. 31 nice drilled tumble beads, 12 gold round beads, ground into the dirt. I spent a few minutes picking them out.
