ik 136
for June 2015 Tetractys and Collum Lune
Glue

in
the heat
of the day
my travels took
a bump, and my rear view mirror fell off

so I stopped at the auto parts store and
got the right kit
and indeed
I fixed
it
*
I would have
let my hubby do it,
were he home

Inspired by: Do it or fix it yourself.
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer
8,879 ways to give yourself and others
good fortune right now.
*
Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Note: my haiku (or other forms) are my interpretations
or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

Tetractys – it’s another of the short poetry forms; invented by Ray Stebbing it consists of at least 5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20). The Tetractys can be written in more than one verse, but then must each line must be followed by an inverted syllable count (10,4,3,2,1 syllables).
American haiku: The Poetic ‘Lune’ : The form is 3/5/3 words. Jack Collom created this new form of haiku by chance…free from all constraints associated with haiku,…See more info from Wikipedia.

  1. Who needs a man?
    Well – I did. Thankfully – my lil brother helped me with recent car issues. Hubby is so not handy that way. But – I’ll keep him anyway. LOL

  2. Hand a woman the necessity – and she will find the means – even if she is cursing under her breath 😉

    • It wasn’t all that difficult. I think in one TV show I used to watch it was a gal who was a mechanical whiz. I pretty much took yesterday off to read a book. And it was the father who was in fact a wonderful nurturer.

      • Ah a reading day —- now that is time well spent! 😀

        Actually, lots of things around a house etc. are pretty much common sense – and patience – oh my, how patience goes so far in easing the situation 🙂
