Winter Poetry

Random thoughts on the New Year

Don’t make resolutions – make dreams. Dream big. Then plan what is needed to make dreams real. Then implement.

Grandmaster Iwon Seo once told my son  that “A Black Belt is a white belt that never quit.” Same is true of all art forms.

Don’t quit; that means reality and the naysayers won.

This weeks supermoon inspired this poem. I have a window by my desk and can look out through the treetops and see the moon hiding, The photograph is by Matt Cardy of Getty Images

Looking through the cold

the wolf moon’s crisp light

warms my soul in its still beauty

 

 

New Year thoughts – Although is odd to put so much emphasis on an abstract created and measured by man.  Every day is a new day, the first day of the rest of your life. Go forth and live,

 

Yesterday Tomorrow

Behind us certain death

Before us mortality

Actions transcend time

Beyond the physical body

 

Haiku inspired by reflections on mortality  – Janus dies and is reborn

 

Bodies wither as

Memories fade across the

ravages of time

 

What will you do to be remembered?  Make a difference.

Be unique you. Be bold. Be brave. and Be Happy.

 

Until next time,

Claire
