Lesson


Sunrise, and a hole
in the clouds

that heals
before

I can tie
my shoes.

Nothing else to say! Peaceful moment...

William Michaelian said...

Another thing to say: thank you, Rudhi.

William,

your poems are a friend I greet each day.

Thank you for sharing that moment, William. Thank you.

William Michaelian said...

Conrad, I have the feeling I’ll remember your comment for a long, long time. I love the idea that poems can have, and can be, friends. That you are such a friend isn’t a surprise.

Katie, I thank you — your visit makes the sharing of it possible.

Kenneth Griggs said...

Enjoyed the poem. Has a Basho/Kerouac feel to it. And that's a great thing.

William Michaelian said...

Kenneth, I appreciate that. You’ve placed the poem among fine company. Glad to hear you like it.

Lovely imagery that you prevoke

William Michaelian said...

Thanks, Amber. And I know there is no shortage of imagery in that artistic head and heart of yours....

Joseph Hutchison said...

Most excellent, William. How many such moments would have passed me by if you hadn't stepped up and helped me see them?

William Michaelian said...

Joe, it sounds like you could use my newly patented Bashometer. It’s only $19.99, and you’ll never have to count haiku moments again!

I know this: I would need a similar dial to record your generosity.

One of the best, yet!

Always pointing towards the East

and never the West.

William Michaelian said...

Although there is the rare exception.... Thanks, Gary!

I love the idea that a hole in the clouds can heal, such a play on words. Thanks, William.

William Michaelian said...

Thanks, Elisabeth. I’m glad you could see through the hole before my sole could heel....
