today’s adventure
(pi ku, Septolet, pi ku, Shadorma, pi ku)

cooler air
walk,
delightful morn
~
Still in shorts
My host
For supper
Enjoys the
Sunshine

I drive
He, cannot
~
trees changing
mums
colorful hues
~
Companions
We dine, he with wine
One fruitful
Glass for health
Always too much food each takes
Home the extra food
~
home while the
sky’s
delightful blue

(g) Stir Crazy? (7.10)

Stir Crazy?
(a haibun)

One batter, split
For oatmeal cookies
He wanted cranberries and mini coco chips
She only wanted the chocolate

There was enough to send home
A bag for him, a bag for her
(to share with Mommy and Daddy)
And some extra for the neighbor

A long day soon to end –
Started with a walk
As well as ended with one.
And now I’m done in…

I did learn though
That this was the one-hundredth day
That I’ve been with my exercise ‘program’
And received some bonus points

where have I been and
where shall I go – to the moon
and maybe I’ll return

(My ‘program’ is mainly just walking – since starting almost at the beginning of April I’ve logged 2,005,247 steps, climbed 3454 floors (or have gone up steep inclines – the hills in my neighborhood or actual stair flights), and have traversed 850.4 miles.)

(g) without asking… (7.2)

without asking…

mowed an extra lawn –
one less task that our neighbors’
will have to tend to

since being hospitalized
unexpectedly this week

some grass in shadow
made it easier – but I
still felt like melting

can’t imagine what they are
going through; diagnosis

then treatment for an
illness that overtakes one’s
entire functions; blood!

we can do simple tasks; and
pray for the best of outcomes…

Just Karma 221
(tau ku, pi ku pair)

recognition

when treatment takes away
from you –
remind yourself of what is left

those extra days
you
have to live

Smaller than haiku: line/syllable count
tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8
pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4

A-Z for April 2016 X wp

Unofficial A-Z challenge 2016
(On Sundays – still using Kipfer’s book for inspiration for Instant or Just Karma)

“Now is the Time : 170 Ways to Seize the Moment”
By Patrick Lindsay
Now is the time …: To try Kindness.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
~Philo of Alexandria (20 Before the Common Era – 50 Common Era)

Yedidia (Jedediah) HaCohen…also called Philo Judaeus, was a Hellenistic
Jewish philosopher who lived in Alexandria, in the Roman province of Egypt.
Philo used philosophical allegory to attempt to fuse and harmonize
Greek philosophy with Jewish philosophy.

Be Pre-’Pair’ed/ Give E’xx’tra

Lovingkindness
Double positive;
Creating sincere concern
Bespeaks mutual understanding of
Life

Even for a single smile, stress effort twice

Life;
bitter battles bake the
heart rock solid –
Duplicately deliver
Lovingkindness

(Elfje and Reverse Elfje mirror a single conscious thought)

(With quotes by famous folks
Whose last names start with the alphabet
Or at least have those ‘tricky letters’ –
U, Q, X & Y in them)

ik 175 for August 2015 wp

ik 175
(Jack Collum American Lune series)
Examples

business managers can
learn from parents that encouragement
creates healthy attitudes

we do not
have to like every chore;
teamwork is key

healthy attitudes create
people who are willing to
go extra miles

*
Inspired by: Give feedback and praise when you
delegate responsibility.
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer
8,879 ways to give yourself and others
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.
