Today

I looked randomly for a poem today and found this one by Frank O’Hara. It seemed to fit the idea of today and the randomness of it. Getting settled back into a routine of reading and writing is one that brings about a certain feeling of randomness and surprises. There is some beauty in those surprises, just like there is in a poem.

Oh! kangaroos, sequins, chocolate sodas!
You really are beautiful! Pearls,
harmonicas, jujubes, aspirins! all
the stuff they’ve always talked about

still makes a poem a surprise!
These things are with us every day
even on beachheads and biers. They
do have meaning. They’re strong as rocks.

Carpe Diem Haiga Festival

The picture is an amazing entrance and exit to the day. I am back in Spokane and there is much promise in the new days ahead. I was drawn to the haiku as I was not familiar with the word maunders. It is a human calling to be curious and learn anew each day.

Carpe Diem Haiku host Chèvrefeuille wrote that haiga is a nice kind of art and poetry, it’s a photo, painting or other kind of image with a haiku, senryu, tanka or kyoka included. The picture and the poem are making eachother stronger or making eachother clearer. Since there is a new special feature called Carpe Diem Haiga Festival, I decided to give it a try…
