timing
(three 3,5,3 haiku series)

a late start
on a cool spring day
we laugh, play

early lunch –
after some fresh air;
stroller ride

a long nap
allows for quiet
afternoon

Just Karma 26
(Jorio/ Joria-haibun)

through the backyard jungle
(needs mowing this weekend)
the sun shines through –
muddy creek fishbowl bottom…

we see a school of
fish munching on the algae
– skip tossing in stones

Little Miss and I
(high step, leaf crunch)
back to the house
for our own lunch

In Twenty Minutes, Perhaps One Thousand Feet

A haibun:
In Twenty Minutes, Perhaps One Thousand Feet

What once was a tennis court has been recycled into
more parking.An upper level of an open un-green space
catching the sun’s’ rays and a cool breeze. Up closer and
personal with the leaves of the trees;Tulip (or so I think),
an ornamental (non fruiting) cherry, white birch – and the
towering majestic pines guarding the two car ramp entryways.

Birds of feathers I cannot see (yet) sing in the shade. As I
walk off one of the ramps and along a parking lot exit way to
the street – there is a little green space lined with trees…

Around the bend is a sign that reads; “Union City Trail Entry”.
Something to check out – right next to the hotel ~ maybe after
lunch… or tomorrow. As I head back to meet with friends my
eye catches the yellow of a swallowtail as well as a lone duck…
Wild berry plants not yet in bloom line part of an old chain link
fence weighted by its foliage along with weeds and ivy. So very
overgrown they block the water view until the concrete wall rises
with its manicured plantings. Some old willows and other trees
have found a safe harbor – reminding me of home…

timing – adjusting
ready for lunch, you call me
I was halfway back…

planning

planning…

the half moon hangs this afternoon in the south
aligned with the peak of the roof of the house
in a blue cotton like, cloudless, crisp blanket of sky

walking from the creek to the back porch door
not much stirs in the later part of the day
except for a stray V of geese flying north

we have been forewarned that autumn will side step
and allow an early winter – at least for the next few days
so tomorrow our family will gather for lunch instead of dinner…
