resting dragon heart
betwixt magic and motion
ancient pebble floats

I am very grateful to live on an island off the west coast of Canada. I always try to take a bike ride after work and meditate along a section of shore to let the day go. Today, I was struck with what I saw – to my left, an ACTIVE volcano (
Koma Kulshan) and to the right, in the bright blue sky, the waxing moon rising in daylight! It took my breath away! Hence,
….. the resting dragon heart in a volcano …..
……. the ancient floating pebble in the sky ……
….. Those are the ‘Extremes‘ part of this haiku …..
… the magic and motion are left to your imagination …
….. And the resting dragon, her name is …….
Seraphina …..
… and there is even a lighthouse offshore too …

❤️ Stay safe 🌎 Stay home 🌍 Stay healthy 🌏 Everyone ❤️

I will be taking some time for a break from semi-daily haiku here at Penumbra Haiku! A few things I need to attend to!
Thank you for reading my short digital scratchings!

And I love this quote from Leonard Cohen:
“Going nowhere. . . isn’t about turning your back on the world; it’s about stepping away now and then so that you can see the world more clearly and love it more deeply.”

Time for a short break from daily haiku here at Penumbra Haiku! I will be a skipping stone, heading for the horizon and taking a breather for a short time. Always reading, always writing ….. though, sometimes just for myself, and sometimes ….. for somewhere ….. else!
