again, a sunrise
a scientific blessing
bringing the dawn awe

Really listen

cloud covers the sky
like a rheumy eye; the stars
still exist like … love

(g) mix/ Toast Points (9.18)

Toast Points
(pi ku, tau ku, Collom Lune, Shadorma, Cherita, haiku)

step challenge;
puff –
elliptical

One pound weight in each hand
On a
*Simply Fit Board, far from boring

Found at a
Local store – paid tax but
But not postage

twist to a
TV Jazz station
long playing
songs without
commercial interruption
adds to my tally

Taking a break to start dinner

Smashed potatoes of
Several different hues

Sauted green beans with walnuts
And garlic to go along with salmon –
With peaches cut up in the salad

to our health we’ll toast
to those past and future years;
cooking for ourselves

Irons and Woods
(pi ku, tau ku, Septolet, haiku)

exercise
golf
could work for me

having a lesson helps
the end
result, more time with the husband

More to
Just swinging
A club
at a
Small ball

Posture, poise
Core control

observing nature
on manicured greens, finding
that one little hole…

Dressed and Ready?
(Septolet, Sedoka, haiku, pi ku, Shadorma)

Schedules
Make the man
But distress
Echoes
When plans fail

Crossed wires
Coax worry

“But she said she would…
An hour ago – the car sits
in the driveway, and no one
Returns messages
I’ve left three” – the man worries
Where is his grocery ride?

Is oversleeping
An excuse, when dawn rises
In his east window?

All’s well when
she
Finally wakes

Plan B gets
Sidelined when ‘she’ calls
Then he calls
And cancels
The backup that panic sought
When the day began
