Musings in Haiku

I have chosen the seventeen-syllable haiku and senryu formulation for its discipline in order to express my thoughts on nature, existence, and human relationships. The mundane is never mundane. All life is a vibrant existence for the one who has a keen awareness of ones surroundings whether animate or inanimate. There are worlds to observe if we have eyes to see and ears to hear and later reflect in solitude.

Despre autor

Donal Keohane has been a practicing artist all his life, having his work displayed in galleries, museums, churches, offices, and private homes. The conviction that creation shows forth the glory of God leads him to base his subject matter on nature in all its diversity. He works in various media, drawing, painting, sculpture, mosaic, and stained glass. His interests are not confined to the visual arts alone; he is also a teacher in the fields of art history, drama, and religious studies. Recently he has concentrated on writing poetry. He holds bachelor’s degrees in education, philosophy, and psychology, as well as a master’s degree in fine arts. Theological and communication studies are also part of his schooling.

recollected times

resurge in tranquility

a new awareness

haiku simple thought

seventeen expressive sounds

so short and so much

slowly descending

Seattle far below me

start of a long voyage

gliding slowly on

houses passing by on shore

folks unknown to me

relaxing drinking

the ocean swells beside us

joy of ocean travel

clouded hills on shore

far across Pacific swell

sailor’s daily view

a plain of cotton

Mount Rainier protrudes above

there when clouds are gone

from Seattle’s port

royal living for a time

thanks to Princess lines

cruises to new lands

their lure for ages call me

life’s wondrous places

waves are floating by

the Princess towers above

Skagway comes in view

timeless wooded isles

fiords meander in between

down in awe I gaze

mists are closing in

raindrops patter zigzag trails

farewell Ketchikan

busy ants they move

unload to loading again

sail anew at five

a fast turn about

people antlike work at dawn

to prepare to sail

fear of terror bombs

shoes and metals put aside

we travel safely

Ketchikan farewell

onward to another port

anew yet the same

waves are ploughed apart

angled lines to shore emerge

for me adventures

crowed noisy bar
