(g/s) pained expression (5.10)

pained expression

such a grimaced face
the slow runner outpaces
comfortable strides

BE14: hearth

preparing for chills
autumn air brings; the body
shelters loving thoughts

a building is just tall walls;
you are my sanctuary

our sparks ignite the
tinder, and will feed the flame;
wherever we roam

Make your home base secure and you will feel comfortable

Investments
(mini haibun)

Walking into a nursery school as a grandparent…
brings back some interesting memories.
The fun sing songs, stories and special programs.
Hoping that your own grandchild has fond
comfortable memories of security and love.

how gracious the
generations can be to
count creatively

The teacher had grandparents visit. And then
help little ones with counting their snacks.
Some children had more confidence than others –
Just give them time they were only three years old

Your mind can hold only one thought at a time.
Make it a positive and constructive one.

crayons, bubbles and chalk
(three 3,5,3 haiku series)

cool morning
a brisk walk around
settling

into a
comfortable day
of reading

and playing
napping, waiting and
creating

a sevenling: Crystal Clear

a sevenling:
Crystal Clear

Life is like a box of chocolates – not original
however the formula of introspection, history
(more like her-story) and love of life most certainly is.

Walking in comfortable shoes, enjoying the company
of friends who become family, and making do with
whatever life throws your way – helps make the day

Be bewitched under full moons and by the robin’s song

note: The rules of the sevenling are thus:

The first three lines should contain an element of three – three connected or
contrasting statements, or a list of three details, names or possibilities. This
can take up all of the three lines or be contained anywhere within them. Then,
lines four to six should similarly contain an element of three, connected directly
or indirectly or not at all. The seventh line should act as a narrative summary or
punchline or as an unusual juxtaposition. There are no set metrical rules, but
being such as short form, some rhythm, meter or rhyme is desirable. To give
the form a recognizable shape, it should be set out in two stanzas of three lines,
with a solitary seventh, last line. Titles are not required. A sevenling should be titled.
Sevenling followed by the first few words in parentheses The tone of the sevenling
should be mysterious, offbeat or disturbing, giving a feeling that only part of the story
is being told. The poem should have a certain ambiance which invites guesswork
from the reader.
