Haiku - page 3

Weighed down by heaviness,
I long for the moonlit, pearly clouds overhead;
    Spirit itself calls me in vain.
Tue., 3 Nov., 1998

Summer twilight:
    droning cicadas, the new moon -
    and Venus, too; it's been so long.
ca. 9.30 p.m.
Tue., 22 Dec., 1998

Again - cicadas, the moon, Venus:
a little different now.
    All things change - even truth, even Spirit.
ca. 9.30 p.m.
Wed., 23 Dec., 1998

Again, the moon higher, Venus brighter;
    the cycles of life go on,
    but all will be fulfilled.
ca. 9.30 p.m.
Thu., 24 Dec., 1998

Rising in deep blue morning:
    Venus and the last sliver of moon -
    Seen in reverse this time.
ca. 5.00 a.m.
Wed., 6 Oct., 1999
