(g) service with a smile (5.23)

service with a smile
(renga)

a cool May morning
stroll about; unexpected
service call – waited…

hired to topseal the driveway;
the job is done and paid for

my car, on the street
for the night – instead of in
the garage… I’ll live…

(g) en passant? (5.22)

en passant?
(renga)

morning walk between
the dry and damp sky; her face –
so we meet again

I just walk; She runs and walks
perhaps training for a race?

maybe next time we
will exchange more words than
‘hello’ and ‘nice weather’

en passant = French for ‘in passing’ though mostly used for a
chess capture move…it fits as a title here.

the ‘right’ direction
(tanka)

morning walk uphill
angle counts as stair steps; gains
new lifetime climb ‘badge’

high as a hot air balloon
or two thousand flights of stairs

(g) Skips and Skipping (5.20)

Skips and Skipping

In a rush to settle back
Into a routine…
I forgot about keeping
Some while focusing on others

Pacing out steps for a challenge
And has consumed hours
The health benefit is still debatable,
Questioning is good, isn’t it?

In a rush to settle scores
I’ve subtracted while gaining…
Routines change –
And that is what life is about.

(g/s) …unplugged… (5.11)

…unplugged…

ordered my friend’s book,
might arrive home when I do…
(since I’ve been away…)

hopefully the scheduled posts
have kept my friends entertained

cell phone spotty; no
internet there, where I’ve been –
relaxing unplugged

refilled after days away;

now to empty suitcases and do mounds of laundry…
