The Return

Do
Your job
Well – and you
Get to go home
Early.

Scramble
For reservations –
A change of
Plans brought us home
Today

The
Ohio River
Is replaced by
My backyard creek – once
Again…

A weed in the garden is really any plant growing where you don’t want it.
A rose bush could be a weed – Some say a dandelion is a weed – while
others dine on its new young leaves and make wine! Always know your
plants before touching them and or eating them. Knowledge is power.

(g) twiglet 6/ whether, or not / wp

whether, or not
(pi ku, tau ku, haiku, free verse)

a halo
round
a winter moon

seen at three; then ringing
the phone
wakes us, ending sleep and dreaming

rolling over at
the disturbance, she sighs he
works, to solve problems
*
(After a kiss good-bye at
his regular hour of leaving
she wonders dreamily if
he can come home early.)

IK 391 for December 2016 wp

IK 391
Abide

Flow
The satisfaction
Of fitting pieces
In the puzzle, while
Relaxing

Inspired by: tao is flowing, just like a river
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 Elfje; five line verse of 11 words and
line/syllable count; tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8 and or pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4
are my interpretations of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.
