Three Haiku: Sabbath

[i.]

within sheer silence
whisperings of beginnings
whimpers of demise

[ii.]

like thread`strung flowers
our prayers disintegrate
this side of heaven

[iii.]

aspire to greatness
becoming small like the ant
you will move mountains

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
