NaHaiWriMo May 19th Haiga and Haiku prompt: Blue … as in chakra blue.

I love blue. In the summer I wear blues and whites. Many rooms in my home are painted a blue. My library below is blue … it is my favorite place to be. I always feel soothed here. One’s throat chakra is the color blue … one speaks from the throat chakra, hopefully with clarity and good intent. This chakra according to Anodea Judith whom I have long views as a western authority on chakras has tourquoise, aquamarine and celestite as minerals linked to the throat chakra.

So … I love blue but not in the winter. Below my library where I spend much time.

Haiku:
words of clarity reach into the night – blue cornflower

NaHaiWriMo May 17th Haibun and Haiku prompt: voice

Haibun:
During early summer evenings we love to sit high above the ground amongst the trees on our deck. We will have desert and a “nip” while we are mesmerized watching the Chimney Swifts or Swallows. True aerialists, they feed high above the trees on evening insects, their twittering vocals sometimes shrill and keen. A true bug-fest that ends as the sun goes down. Then all becomes calm and the insects begin their song.

Haiku:
swallows twittering above the foliage – last meal of the day
