Spring breeze,

One million years old, yet so fresh,

When do you return again?

Defragment your mind

Get your priorities straight

Let yourself be free

When I have to die by the sword, I will do so with honor.

so hard to believe

despite the hopeful spirit

harvesting in rain

................................

concentrate, relax

distracted by falling leaves

lifeless blossom flies

The thread is great! I have rewritten some 15 haiku, translated them into Russian and showed my fellow Aikidoka. They liked it! Furuya-san, what you write is wonderful. Thank you!

The mind in turmoil

I feel like I'm in a dream

It's there but it's not

When I have to die by the sword, I will do so with honor.

"Yes Sensei",

sweat leaps from his brow

into the old tatami.

Hands, feet, body, mind.

Become more than your body;

Peace with creation.

Re: Aikido Haiku

Moons wind play fast

an autumn duel in the nights caress

swords clash gone unknown

Now that I think about it, the last line would sound better as

"tradition in steel."

Re: Aikido Haiku

(Not aikido related, but I think phylosophycal enaugh)

I'm looking into sky at night
I see a lot of stars in height
And billions that I have missed
Which does not mean they don't exist

Re: Aikido Haiku

From the pre-eminent novel , "The Sands of Erebus:"

Haiku...Jack thought...at first glance simple, yet in truth a most sophisticated vehicle for expression...my favorite type of poem...no room in a haiku for detailed description...a reader must see between the lines...fill in the gaps to paint his or her own picture.
