Himalaya Haikus

ϟ

i saw her.

maps don’t survive volcano blasts

like that.

ϟ

ice cold toes,

birdsong & laughter.

earthquakes’ heartbeat

ϟ

himalayan sunrise,

tourist tea & photographs,

abandoned home in shadow.

god left his epitaph

flapping in alpine winds,

now builds sand castles.

ϟ

eyes collecting dust.

snow gathered in shade.

she’ll freeze ’til spring.

gentleman whispers

float from roof: Richard Cory,

umbrella in hand.

ϟ

Buddhism, et al. –

efforts to emulate the calm

surrounding god.
