(g) OctaTimbre/ Busy Morning (10.27)

Busy Morning
(OctaTimbre in 8 syllables and 10 lines)

One big lopsided circle done
In about twenty miles all to
Here and there, a bit of every-
Where did all the time go; passing…
Used a coupon to get a snack,
One to get a kitchen gadget,
And another for points off gas.
Stopped at the charity shop too;
Books, slacks, picture frames discounted
And one last stop at the farmstand…

(g) Out to the Inn… (6.23)

Out to the Inn…

Busy week
Leading up to
A short weekend away
While he works…
I’ll walk about
And maybe even play

Grands and errands
Were the demands
And now summer’s begun
Time for some fun

Even through
The morning rain
The cardinal bird appreciates
That I’ve filled the feeder full
– Other fledglings still think
My garden strings come at free rates

Maybe after chapter of mystery book
Or two I’ll pick up a pen and look
– Observe my surroundings and jot
Down a poem or simple plot…
*
(Adieu, adieu, to you
and you and you…
Until around the bend
I’m home again…)

Pleiades
Business?

Bill could have been his name.
Begging, homemade sign, there
Between the two roads where
Busy motorists left –
Bustling forth to go home.
Blocked by the traffic light
Bills from wallet to hand…

Note: I am not sure how legal ‘begging’ is –
some areas will not allow such, but many do
stand in all weather waiting at with homemade signs:
some say; Lost job, Disabled vet, Hungry; please help.

Inspired by: Make a contribution.
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer

good fortune right now.

Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Note: my haiku (or other forms) are my interpretations
or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

Pleiades: Invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman. The Pleiades
is a seven-line poem that gets its name from the Pleiades star cluster.
Each line begins with the same letter and is six syllables long.
(Not sure why just six syllables as the Pleiades are supposed to be seven sisters.)
