(g) OctaTimbre/ A Day Full of ‘Son of Son’ (10.20)

A Day Full of ‘Son of Son’
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Will it float or will it sink… boats
Made from Lego bricks, some listed
The young scientist needs to know
Especially what will happen
To his build of the Titanic!
After lunch plans to visit the
Library to buy and borrow,
A stop at a neighborhood park
First, then a drive by to the bank
That’s how we spent most of the day

list , listed, listing (boating): it means something prob broke and water began filling the boat hull. as it fills with water it begins to become unbalanced and starts to lean over ( list )

Just Karma 195
Grand ‘Son’
(haibun)

Just how busy can a six year old keep you? Train tracks have trains traveling
a maze of wooden trails, some leading to another group of toys set up as a
stop on the town…taking up all the square footage of the room.

We get derailed out into nature to visit two different parks; Climbing rocks,
scampering over bridges, sliding and hiding in tubes and tunnels before
escaping the heat into the library.

The silo room is filled with building toys, a different train; another country of
building blocks for imaginative play – We borrow some videos for perhaps a
quiet time after stopping at the library cafe store for a snack and books!

Once back home lunch is but a refueling station, milked for all it is worth;
Grama breathes while the video entertains the child who will rest, but not nap.

There is a request for macaroni cargo for the trains to haul, after a brief look
at the huge spider web found outside…Daddy arrives and Son of Son does
not want to leave – It’s the first time in a long time he’s had Grama all to himself
without Little Miss joining them. Ever the negotiator Son of Son pleads for a
repeat of the day…tomorrow…

grandchildren; blessings
change the scheduled plans of peace –
brightening our daze

(a summary of yesterday)

Note: I have not been to the new parks systems by our ‘new’ library
in about twenty years – the whole inter connection of roads has changed.
What was once a straight road through, passed a small local golf course
and roller skating rink. Has become a maze filled with multiple
opportunities for play and recreation.

our library

new discovery
round the bend

little Miss
enjoys puzzles at
a table

together;
before and after
‘Sing and Sign’

a good yesterday
haiku series

so much more in store
recordings, programs, art, books
at the library

‘Sing and Sign’ we hear
familiar songs and two
different farm books

a lost chick helps us
counting; another, a goose
finds a place to nest

Grama gets a new
library card, barrows books;
and then buys some too

full morn uses up
the Little girl’s energy;
quiet afternoon

ik 322 Joy 22 for January 2016 wp

Counting Simple Joys

using imagination, being creative,
he’s going to try and be home before the storm,
warmth in winter, warm clothes, a good shovel,
it’s library day, health returns after a weak week,
having an old car that still runs well, having a
washing machine and having a dishwasher,…

Inspired by: Whenever you are in a negative frame of mind,
think of ten things you are grateful for.
From: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer

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.
