Five Haiku on the Spiritual Journey of Grounding, Path, and Fruition

By Judith, Hermit of Sarada

Red Rocks in the Fall

Pegged down by red rocks,
the tawny coated ironed earth
still rustles restlessly.

Upslope Fog

Dense upslope fog parts
russet-hued land beneath me —
clumped scrubs shredded for
winter.

Living Faith

The scouring wind cleans,
cleaving dead from living earth
—new hope it re-deposits.

Dust Devils Rising

Dust devils rising
recalled by pebbled red earth,
fade back into path.

Morning Glory

Fly at dawning light,
my dreams growing green
like you —
heart’s tears streaming wild
trickles.


SISTER JUDITH THACKRAY, Hermit of Sarada, is a founding member of
