Like summertime rain,

Aiki calms the inner fire,

Walk in it often

Ushered into flight

Plummeting fast through the void

Gi whispers on mat.

I find the aquisition of knowledge to be relatively easy, it is the application that is so difficult.

Where are you in Indonesia where you have snow?

(Lucky you. One of my more persistent memories of the archipelago is prickly heat...)

Rain on clay shingles

Smell of humid putrescence

And fried bananas

I've got a haku I wrote about playing 'Dodge the Ki ball' in Aikido class:

Inner music builds

Telling me I should move - now!

Ki ball hits the wall

Dark clouds threaten rain

Dojo calls come play, be safe

Here we practice peace.

FALL DOWN GET BACK UP

O SENSEI TEACHES US STILL

FEAR NOT THE CONFLICT.

There once was a mat that was dirty,

so dirty that Ikkyo hurty.

My face would be met

with people's old sweat

'till the cleaners turned dirty to purty!

Oops, how'd that get in there? (we got the mat cleaned for the new year at our place, spontaneous limericks arose, sorry).

Perhaps better with

There was a young uke from Breighton,

Who never could flow with the Kaiten

Nagw would heave

The mat he would leave

His flight-en, in kaiten would frighten

Sorry I had to get back up out of bed just to put this nasty thing here before I could sleep

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!

Job was hard to find

Schedule permits aikido

Something new to try

(okay, so I don't do aikido yet...but I will soon! 3 weeks!)

round and round we flow

one, two - iriminage

where did sensei go?
reminds me of one time being uke in front of zillions of new students. Sensei did a form of irimi nage that went UP, then cut back down to the backs of the knees... Apparently the look on my face when he disappeared was priceless.

Which reminds me:

Training and springtime

Students, many as treebuds

Winter means less come

Hm... something just occurred to me to post as a separate thread... Hmmm.

Yoroshiku!
