up to my ankles

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 7:06 pm

Here are a few reasons why I became a haiku advocate  —

by a modern master, jim kacian:

 

 

 

just now
as my life turns crazy
forsythia

 

 

 

 





ground fog
up to my ankles
in moonlight


 


 










“sunLakeFrameG”


 


tidepool
the stars sink
into the sand


 


 


the river
         the river makes
   of the moon


 


 


 






city morning
a crane lifts its shadow
up the wall


 


 


 


spotlight


 


in concert
the violin soloist
and his shadows


 



 




 










six ducks

on a river log —

seven dawdlers

I had to smile today, when I read Steve Bainbridge‘s

self-proclaimed “rant”, which includes:


“this is probably what bugs me most about some

liberals: smug self-satisfaction in their own moral

superiority.” 

This from a man who has repeatedly asserted that it is

impossible to have a strong moral code or sense of social

responsibility outside of a religious context.  And, who

believes his own Church has the definitive answer to

every moral question.   Maybe that old psychological

saw is true — we most dislike in others what we most

dislike about ourselves.   However,  I have promised

myself I would steer clear of controversy and judgment-

alism for the duration of this weblog, so I shall end this

blurb — and try a little introspection.
