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!

easterly wind blows
rain slants differently, white drops
that melt on landing

cloud sculpted morning
pale east defined by splurged grey
before sun rises

grey-bellied white clouds
clean the warmth from the air, out
of the east they blow

pink-edged grey clouds at
dawn, sail above sea, heading
East towards the sun.
