From the Dragon’s Log: More Locational Haikus

{I was inspired to write down what transpired on this tour in the form of haikus, partly because the name #zenmountainpoets  emerged through some haikus that Billy and Victor were writing while hanging out in San Diego.  Here’s the account of the next couple days}:

Wednesday, December 14: Fairfield, CA –> Ashland, OR

Soul Christmas Music

The earth quakes, some are awake

Missing piece aligned

Road Blues

Road Blues: An acoustic window into a window of time when we overcame the odds and made it through to play 7 shows in 9 days on the Dragon Awakens Tour.  A story told through song, freely styled and highly improvised, recorded on the bus…on our newly made-over Soundcloud !

 

All those little moments

Here’s to all those little moments~~

A shift of a finger,

A drift on the line,

A flutter of a wing,

A breath, divine

Reminders of the present, in time,

Re-members of the past,

All those little moments

Combined

For the possibility of this one.

Planning ahead, moment to moment,

Or reflecting on the past ones,

Why do I whine?

I’ve got to wash the dishes

So I can dine!
