HAIKU FOR THE SOUL Poetry by JULIAN BOUND

Exploring the concepts of Buddhist practice within the traditional Japanese form of Haiku poetry, each poem presents a guide for contemplation and meditation in both the emotional and metaphysical worlds found within the following ten sentiments of the self.

COMPASSION: Compassion, a forgiveness coupled with understanding.

PEACE: A strive for serenity within the self, peace comes from within.

LOVE: An untold vastness of emotion, its range and depth exceeding that of all other sentiments.

MEDITATION: Deepening awareness invigorating the soul, refreshing the spirit with channeled clarity. LIFE: A sanctity, a battle, a gathering of given elations, tumultuous and foreboding… life.

HAPPINESS: As elusive as it is easily found, liberty granted in expressions of joy.

IMPERMANENCE: Temporary, fleeting, all that has been has gone, as will all to come fade also.

MINDFULNESS: Awareness to all surrounding, attentiveness to the consciousness within.

REINCARNATION: To be born again, to experience the world afresh through new given eyes.

KARMA: Action, in action, no deed unnoticed; no acts forsaken in the realms of karma's cyclic stream.
