leaking sky

morning walk was short-
then rain…errands, misty – and
an afternoon jaunt

followed by more chilled rain – how
many weekends in a row

has it been since the
sun has been out all the day –
summer weather hides

the vulture flew up
from the ground, startled by feet –
ours as we passed by…

a good symbol of change and
opportunity this week

unofficial beginning of summer
(Memorial Day Weekend in the States)
(haiku series)

a two mile walk to
breakfast at the local place –
Then back home again

to bake brownies for
a family gathering –
under cloudy skies

before we leave, I
finish planting (in some pots)
my outdoor garden

tomatoes, peppers
and herbs in pots on the drive
where they will get sun

then off to picnic
on grilled and baked foods; all mixed
with laughter and joy

busy start to the weekend
(extended renga)

a grand performance
by three year olds’, turning four;
their last day of school

then onto ‘Grama’s’ house for
some one on one time for play

afternoon saw the
six year old joining the fun
almost to the eve

then ‘Grama’ slipped off to the
neighbors for some adult time

traveling spouse then
joined the group sharing some beer
wine, champagne and snacks

absorbed and absent
(renga)

distracted by spring…
cleaning and the rain, I missed
another gem post

yesterday; rain continues
no outside play or walking

still dancing to my
music while packing away
my winter blankets

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.
