Bee

a mark on the world

flower offers a yellow kiss

spring’s exclamation

Here’s one for the bees (who people so often run away from). These little creatures diligently keep our world alive.

Our host at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai has once again offered a wonderful prompt.

Grace in Haiku

“It’s my pleasure to bring a new episode of Haiku Shuukan. Several weeks ago, we started with Joan Halifax’s G.R.A.C.E and this week it’s about the “A” in G.R.A.C.E. The “A” stands for Attaining to Self Other. ”

Linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Shuukan:
Attaining to Self-Other:

“Sense without judgment. This is an active process of inquiry, first involving yourself, then the other person. Open a space in which the encounter can unfold, in which you are present for whatever may arise, in yourself and in the other person.”

What to do with this idea in a haiku? I don’t really know, but I have to give it a try:

Seek and ye shall find
