meditation haiku images to h7.jpg

no crickets

boughs bend to
night-shot spirit

sony haiku:
adjust the lens!

lightless light -
everything in this cold world
needs batteries

the big test
of zero-lux weather

winter wind
ecstatic steadi-shot -
what trembling!

oh breathe deeply -
autofocus and spirit -
both unforgiving

I am Nikuko.  Please, describe yourself.

in the middle of tiny machines, crawled down
the furrow of the bark, brass spring tendrils
into leaf stomata, following my channels
through woods and forest

You have your mind on machines, it seems.

minding machines tending leaf-curling, all
autumn color exchange through spring and cam
tendrils, alignment of twig and branch,
all shadowy crown, the machines invisible

You think too much about machines.

among fern and weed, the machines present
among every leaf, up-welling roots and trunks,
membranes among membranes, the turning of cams,
bending of springs

Is this how you relax?

of machine and brass, cam lathings, i follow
among the furrows of bark and cell, penetrate
all leaves, twigs, branches, among all woods,
forests, cams, and small machines

You should try taking your mind off of machines.

swelling and pulling among leaves and saps,
ground-swell waters and fungi, bacterial airings,
roots sending upwards through small machines,
machines of springs, machines of cams and brass

Are you a neurotic pervert?
