in meditation

my mind wanders to the east –

and never returns

Dan says of himself, “I’m a writer, speaker, poet, photographer, activist, wanderer, wonderer, and professor of political science and sociology in the beautiful and bountiful San Francisco Bay Area.” Find out more about him and his writing at About Me.

Again, an original take on the theme, using the mind as a portal. I liked the unexpected last line.

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

Dan originally submitted this haiku for the theme of LEAF. I chose another of his haiku for that theme, but this re-written haiku I felt was perfect for our new theme …

This haiku stuck out from the first reading because Dan describes a scene during daylight hours. I like the balance this brings to the theme of eclipse from yesterday …

a happy deathday
