Holy Holes and Adoration of Ashes?

Navels
More than
Just an orange
For energy or even
Contemplation

Once
I read
A model had
Hers surgically removed…for
Vanity?

Links
Navels from
Mother to babe
Centers of life blood
Flows

I’ve
Been to
Maui – I saw
Different kinds of hard
Lava

Pahoehoe
Is sharp
A’a is smooth
We did not see
‘Lava’

Not
All ash
Is the same…
‘Wildcat Scattering’…she did
That…

To
My father
At his request –
In the Gulf he
Went…

An
Uncle left
His body to
Science – his ashes were
Returned

(…what tradition will I follow?)

Other Carrot Ranch 99 word pieces

April 20: Flash Fiction Challenge

April 20, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a navel story. It can include a belly-button, feature an omphalos (geological or cultural), or extend to navel-gazing (used in meditation or to describe excessive self-contemplation). Go where this oddity leads you.

Lava Types: Pahoehoe and Aa. Lavas, particularly basaltic ones, come in two primary types: pahoehoe (pronounced ‘paw-hoey-hoey”) and aa (pronounced “ah-ah”). Both names, like a number of volcanological terms, are of Hawaiian origin. A third type, pillow lava, forms during submarine eruptions. ((pahoehoe (pa-hoy-hoy) and a’a (ah ah).)

Sproingy!

On the

The field enjoy new
Flora

Good
Day to
Weed those young
Plants growing where they
Oughtn’t

Or
Move and
Protect those that
Crept out of their
Beds

A weed in the garden is really any plant growing where you don’t want it.
A rose bush could be a weed – Some say a dandelion is a weed – while
others dine on its new young leaves and make wine! Always know your
plants before touching them and or eating them. Knowledge is power.

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.)

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

Observing 24 Whether 4
Whether Ort Not
(verse and haiku)

Whether to walk now
Or wait until it warms up

Whether to buy that new pot
Or what until the old one fails

Whether to have a cookie
Or eat a stalk of celery…

Whether to scare the big birds away
Or let them too have half a chance

Whether to watch a repeat, something new
Or read a book…

simple choices fail
when the mind is unsettled;
does distraction help
