Dance of Time

“Dance of Time”, a poem by Gregg Hake

Waters move beneath me
As I sit upon the dock
That stretched obligingly
From the edge of the pond.
The shifting winds ruffle
Its reflective visage
With wispy wrinkles,
But only for a moment.
The dance of time,
Of youth and golden age
Betides before me―
In the evening light.

Patience

“Patience”, a Haiku by Gregg Hake

Wise are the watchful―
Fitting is better than forcing,
Patience is the way.

The way of life, the way of nature, is patience.

Life?

The distracted life―
Deceived by details,
Brimming with wants,
An unfulfilling smorgasbord,
Agitation.

The focused life―
Order out of chaos,
Priorities made clear,
Gathered in one place,
Peace.

The eye of the storm―
Peace within the tempest’s heart
Is always at hand.

Diligence

“Diligence”, a Haiku by Gregg Hake

Diligent inchworm
Loops along the verdant frond―
Measuring the earth.

First Light

“First Light”, a Haiku by Gregg Hake

Before the sunrise―
The dreams of tomorrow blend
Into the first light.
