(g) down time… (7.12)

down time…

some nine miles even
trod before and after plans;
soon to find relief

in perhaps an easier
night of actual sleeping

too much tossing and
turning caused an early rise;
looking for ends day

early gathering
for the holiday – in-laws,
three generations

cousins, nieces, nephews and
all the elders celebrate

before the sun sets
yet after the rains poured through –
al fresco dining

morning walk was short-
then rain…errands, misty – and
an afternoon jaunt

followed by more chilled rain – how
many weekends in a row

has it been since the
sun has been out all the day –
summer weather hides

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.

(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
