(g) busy start to the weekend (5.27)

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

(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
