    Sunday Practice

    A silent spider
    Sitting perfectly tranquil
    My thoughts to observe

    You?

      Going here and there and here
      My thoughts observe me

        Hi.

        A young boy smiles
        picks up a stick
        And laughs

          A summer's night sky
          Stars hanging over my bed
          Beacons for my dreams

          Good night.

            This young man often feels
            More like an old fool than a boy
            Ironic life, isn't it?

              Yellow Sun and green trees,
              Red sun gives red trees,
              And then, no Sun gives nothing to see...
              ironic, isn't?

                Lost in distractions,
                the present moment
                slips by unnoticed

                  When the night falls
                  suddenly an owl brakes the silence

                    Right, wrong, better, worse
                    Opinions, views, mind-candy
                    My thoughts betray me

                      I woke early
                      To a fierce thunderstorm
                      I laid awake in awe

                          Sitting with the misty mountains
                          Loneliness, fear creep in
                          My mind suddenly a frantic storm
                          Still, I sit as the mountain
                          For that, I am proud

                            Care to Renga?

                            Ever heard of Japanese "Renga" poetry?
                            As I understand, one poem is composed by two or more people, working in harmony. Neither owning the result. How Zen is that?
                            Renga is composed using five lines, with the first three resembling haiku in following a 5-7-5 syllable-per-line count and the fourth and fifth lines containing seven syllables each.
                            I only just started trying haiku with the first post here. I think my feeble attempts are more "hope-so" than haiku, but would anyone be so kind as to help finish this? It needs two more lines of 7 syllables each, along the same theme:

                            This past, that future
                            Re-writing and becoming
                            Mind wasting my time

                              Mind time may seem time wasted
                              But mined mind time, a gold mine! :mrgreen:

                              More of a response than anything :P
