Neverending thread,

Re: Aikido Haiku

cat sleeping on desk
full moon, falling stars hidden
and no thoughts for aikido.

heaven sings to us
Perseus casts his arrows
open eyes listen

Choked with limbs and twigs,
the stream is burdened. Blocked? No,
minnows wriggle through.

Re: Aikido Haiku

You think you know me,
how I'll move, where I'll step, why.
I could surprise you.

I enter, you veer,
matching move for move, until ...
Kuzushi! Who falls?
