(g) busy start to the weekend (5.27)

busy start to the weekend
(extended renga)

a grand performance
by three year olds’, turning four;
their last day of school

then onto ‘Grama’s’ house for
some one on one time for play

afternoon saw the
six year old joining the fun
almost to the eve

then ‘Grama’ slipped off to the
neighbors for some adult time

traveling spouse then
joined the group sharing some beer
wine, champagne and snacks

One each way
One busy River – the

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.

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.)

for April 2015

kind of a been there
and done that – let another
have a turn, or go

like to be busy and seen;
the stage is all yours, good luck

may the spotlight show
your best side, and allow me
to offer applause

…travel…

…travel…
(CD special 120/ 21.4)

Their watching faces,
as I walk the autumn road
make me a traveler.

following the sand path
circling around this mountain
I feel like an eagle

yesterday so far
I traveled, not leaving home;
busy grandchildren

Slow Saturday

Slow Saturday

After the plumber….
Hubby hooked up the fridge’s ice maker
For safety the line tucked under
Round the back of the cabinets is copper

Then the yearly checking of
Our heating system was done
While the grandchildren slept

After they left…
A simple salad of homemade slaw
Followed by some ravioli
And an early end to a busy day

Then a comfortable awakening
Even with a to do list looming
It’s just nice to have things
Sort of normal and quiet

After a very busy week…
Now it’s time to sort the mail
And pay the final bill –
With kitchen, wallet and hearts, lighter
