enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

gazing carefully
clear-eyed readiness
calm enough
cold enough
old enough

rustling raises shackles
a welcome caress
shivering with awareness
night falls
dawn breaks
twilight hovers


how do you hunt a fox
the fox will teach you


  1. Wonderful - I remember learning from a paintbrush while stubbing paint into a wall of embossed wallpaper.
    "the fox will teach you" - I've not heard it put quite like this before, not that I have any intention of hunting foxes ;]

  2. I love the last verse. It's just so perfect.

  3. Excellent, I found it really beautiful and profound, quite a message you tell people trough this seemingly simple words, you are so right about how teaching and learning works.

  4. This is astoundingly good. I agree with Madame DeFarge. The last verse ties it up perfectly and gives it a resonating ending. I read this more than once. Well done.

  5. Pisces-- thanks for the corollary..... nicely done!
    Madame-- thanks--- I like the idea of this kind of learning.
    Mariana-- how nice of you; it seems we share some of the same sentiments about teaching and learning
    Seventy niner... thanks for the kind words--- I'm glad it spoke to you :))

  6. Dave-- thanks; I am enjoying your haikus over at your blog!

  7. It is so hard to be attentive to the fox, or whatever animal or non-animal object we are hunting. Even more so because this attentiveness requires forgetfullnes. Well, just the thoughts that your text sparked.

  8. Oyvind--- what a great line: this attentiveness requires forgetfulness; beautiful. thanks for the visit and this lovely sentiment.... I will be reflecting on it.
