(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.

…unplugged…

ordered my friend’s book,
might arrive home when I do…

hopefully the scheduled posts
have kept my friends entertained

cell phone spotty; no
internet there, where I’ve been –
relaxing unplugged

(g/s) ‘fore’ warned! (5.11)

‘fore’ warned!

paved path for golf carts
do not make good walking trails
unless you play golf

though there are a few times that
the cart may ride on the grass

the public ought to
find paths where ‘Fore’ needn’t be
a warning to hear

Note: not all the paved cart paths are connected.

(g) exploration and discovery (5.9)

exploration and discovery

there’s a circular
trail behind the park that has
spokes to neighborhoods

spreading to retail spaces;
major and minor roadways

one spoke a day for
a different adventure
when the clock permits

Love 7
Love’s Life
(renga)

beating without sight
the heart depends on so much
of the bold body

the brain, the five senses and
honest human history

even while keeping
just a few tarnished secrets
of its’ very own

“That is where the golden knowledge is, the important parts,
Signs of danger, of safety, of what is within the heart.
Remember, all of us here, men and women, have three hearts,
One for all the world to see, one for their family and
One for themselves alone.”
