The uncertain hand/
Translates the words for power/
On a New York wall/

His trumpet in the subway/
Calling souls back home/

It was from a packaged mix/
But she did it all/

Powerlessness

August 17, 2012

44. I wrote for an hour/
Twenty small poems on life/
A keystroke lost them/
#haiku

45. Then I spent an hour/
In the dark woods of Apple/
Fruitlessly trying/
#haiku

46. I am heartbroken/
I lost some of my poems/
And I’m powerless/
#haiku

47. Powerless over/
Things others can simply do/
Makes me feel so weak/
#haiku

49. The posh don’t matter/
Except to the enforcers/
Of status matters/
#haiku

1a. Faith accumulates/
Like the snow on a park bench/
Silently and cold/
#haiku

1b. Faith accumulates/
Like children in a playground/
Joyfully and loud/
#haiku

1c. Faith accumulates/
When the faithful sit calmly/
Expecting nothing/
#haiku

1d. Faith accumulates/
When the faithful sit calmly/
Expecting something/
#haiku

2. Enjoying this day/
Requires acceptance of facts/
Unpalatable/
#haiku

Hope

31. I’m trying again/
Another attempt today/
At a perfect day/
#haiku

32. Enthusiasm/
Isn’t so necessary/
Just some willingness/

Outdated Ritual

49. Rituals provide/
People the intangible/
Continuity/
#haiku

50. Human ritual/
No matter how informal/
Creates our beings/
#haiku

51. My powerlessness/
Is manifest whenever/
I talk to my kids/
#haiku

52. Participation/
In my own self improvement/
Is a miracle/
#haiku
