Finding Matsuo Basho


Japanese poetry has always fascinated me. I literally
slave over my haiku, most times I hate what I write..
After a lot of mind bashing, a little bit of a semblance of
haiku comes out, if I dare to call it that..
Today, I was delighted to find comments on my short poems
posted yesterday and the day before and the day before.
These comments are nothing but the best haiku I ever read on WP.
Cheers to our very own Haiku Master, Mick E Talbot

The first poem is mine and the one below is the haiku of Mick.

my meditation
the night meditates-
in the seclusion of my mind
I dream of Adonis.

Mick’s haiku
I dream of Venus
blinding beauty reaching out
Goddess of love.

The moon rises
The moon rises through
nocturnal scents
tall trees guard night blossoms
stars gaze
I sit in the darkness

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
