Observing 30 Unexpected 1
Patient Patient
(haibun with Collom Lune)

One call – to set up an appointment
Too early for (tomorrow) today…, but it will have to do

(On call today, everyday, yesterday – nap interrupted
One visitor, then another – for dinner…too

On point? Looking to retire – to rest,
To recuperate from being (healthily) manipulated…)

One tug, a gentle tuning, some ultra sound waves…
Happy to be slowly mending – finally.

A good visit
A nice review, expectations for
Both; gone well

(Note: I can do stairs with alternate feeties and
squat and get up much easier…today. It may take
a while but I think I am finally mending.)

Forget Tiptoeing Through Tulips
(Collom Lunes 3,5,3 words)

Joy of aging
Rolling out of bed with
Aches and pains

Could have just
Been not bending correctly…but
What an “ouchie”

Hobble and bobble
Throughout the day, planning carefully
Every little movement

While Out and About
(prose and Collom Lune 3,5,3 words)

There is no whether or not
To answer a cell phone while driving
Especially if you do not have a
Hands free device – just don’t.
Be smart with your smart or
Not so smart traveling phone…
Remember when they didn’t exist?

Motto: ‘Safety First’
The expected “Salad Run” call –
From the neighbor…

Contradiction in Contractions
(prose and Collom Lune 3,5,3 words)

Whether to limp along or be
proactive in muscle discomfort…
Should ‘one’ be thought of as lucky
that only one set, group or side
causes distress?

At least there seems to be some signs
of recovery – with the aid of rest and
medical creams… And the lesson learned
that sometimes waiting for aid for a heavy
task is the right thing to do…

Age is just
A number hanging over head
So they say

Even Keel?
(prose and Collom Lune 3,5,3 words)

Actively choosing whether to participate
In a misnamed and cleverly titled gathering
At an early hour…well sometimes it is
Polite to be in polite company even when
Some wool has been pulled over one’s eyes…

Plateaus and peaks
Leave two choices keep rising
Or go down

Just Karma 127 (N4) for July 2016 wp

Just Karma 127
Native Wisdom 4

Dust ?
Many beliefs have similar concepts.
Believing in justice for the injustices
that seem to plague humanity.

You dare me
To wish, not knowing, caring
About my pain

Since you refuse to listen to mine and will
not share your own, how can you proclaim
To be both judge and jury?

Can the slate
Be cleaned of your spoken
Chalk like words

I have to believe that my deserts will be
fair by the Force that allows me to live in
and enjoy simple moments.

(Free verse and Collum Lunes)

We were taught to believe that the Great Spirit sees and
Hears everything, and that he never forgets; that the hereafter
he will give every man a spirit-home according to his deserts…
This I believe, and all my people believe the same.
