(g) OctaTimbre/ Pip, Pip Hooray! (10.19)

Pip, Pip Hooray!
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Everyone is getting into
Leaving painted rocks around town
Some have inspirational words
Thoughtful little pick me ups to
Bring smiles and encouragement for
Those who find these little gems stones.
Others have gotten creative
With their decorating, I found
sort of a cube, a fake “die” job
A fun surprise for me to find

(g) OctaTimbre/ Seriously… (10.18)

Seriously…
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

At six fifteen in the morning
In the month of October-brr
It is thirty-eight degrees when
I get the morning paper that
Is waiting for me at the end
Of my drive, and it is quite dark
Orion silently dances
In the velvet sky, in the east
Dawn in autumn can arrive with
Frost, though ‘Dog Days’ can be warmer…

Though Dog Days are more related to summer,
We can have some in Autumn too.

Autumn Druge?
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Theirs is a treeless lawn where the
Leaves congregate and fall from a
Variety of neighborhood
Oaks, maples, ash, chestnut, others;
Named just some that shed their colors –
They’ve put up a temporary
Fence in a hope to block what blows
They pick up their rakes, take their piles
Straight across the street and put them
Under the major offender…

Answer me
Of wholes
Sum truth

Learn Things Without Poking a Sleeping Bear
(OctaTimbre syllable count)

Wearing a white had does not mean
That one gives others carte blanche to
Take advantage of someone – just
Because you have been given a
Second chance does not mean that all
Of your previous faults will be
Discounted – even a wiped slate
Has some residual chalk bits…
Learn from your mistakes, move with a
Smile onto the next adventure

(g/s/f) Carrot Ranch Invitation: Spell… Bound? (10.12)

Carrot Ranch Invitation: Spell… Bound?
(OctaTimbre with a Septolet haibun)

There is excitement in the air for me
I am stretching my wings, embracing something different
There is a slight tremble, shadow of fear…
No one will want to come and play
The enchantment of creating is the rainbow lure
Who will nibble and possibly take the bait?
Nerves rattle like the moistureless leaves just waiting…
To fall …will they be crushed under foot?
Will I be a successful mage with my
Willow wand in hand and cast my spell

Interrupt time
Interpret space

There is
No race
Just a
Hope for
For participants…
