LIFE AGAIN/ Poetry Potluck #45

THE THEME this week at Poetry Potluck #45 is NATURE and LIFE.  Here's a Haiku and a Pantoum.


A slice of life please.
Pile everything atop it,
I'll take it to go...


I catch a sliver of light
as birth receives me.
It looks just as bright
as the light of Nirvana.

As birth receives me,
shapes and forms wave me on,
as the light of Nirvana
seems the same as life.

Shapes and forms wave me on.
I'm hoping to enter paradise,
seems the same as life.
Maybe I'm wide of the mark.

I'm hoping to enter paradise,
it looks just as bright.
Maybe I'm wide of the mark.
I catch a sliver of light.

I like both of these, and am always amazed at the detailed picture which can be painted with so few words. Excellent writing.

Hi Valerie-
Thanks so much and welcome! This was very interesting for me...

Lyn said...

Hi Bryce-
This was a case of forms saving me..especally the Pantoum, which sort of writes itself at some point..goes right into my unconscious..if you know what I mean!
