(g) down time… (7.12)

down time…

some nine miles even
trod before and after plans;
soon to find relief

in perhaps an easier
night of actual sleeping

too much tossing and
turning caused an early rise;
looking for ends day

(g) Spring Reaction; Go! (3.19) wp

Observing 19
Spring Reaction; Go!
(haibun with renga)

Another year another change in policy
To protects the worker bees and families
Time for checking in with healthcare providers,
(Especially when there has been some lapse).
Test here test there, then wait for results –
Though some are put on notice for further trials.
The body that has aged mostly in good health
Might have a surprise or two after a few miles.

below the layers
and in between components
things are that should nought

so another appointment
for investigation looms

things are going to
be put right and corrected
below the layers

(Note: While physicals should be annual and perhaps other tests in different
cycles, sometimes they are not. Not all tests can be done at the same office.
I am though so far, in fairly good shape for the shape I’m in…).

perfect timing?
(a renga)

pink sky eases slow
from the east, only briefly
blocked by the crow horde

a natural alarm clock
if you haven’t another set

miles of them spilling
unlike the contained grains of
an hourglasses sand

http://crow.bz/main/murder.htm A horde, hover, muster,
parcel are also listed as collective nouns for Crows.
The most famous of them all is “a murder”.

Just Karma 201
modifications
(haibun)

Adjustments. If it is misty put on a raincoat, take a different
Route. Stop and chat with the neighbors. Even the ones who
are moving out. Walk between the storm that has moved in
for about twenty-four hours. With the wind that knocks over
the same potted plant three times. And knocks off the green
tomato left on the vine on the last day of the month. I suppose
it is time to harvest the rest of the green tomatoes. And maybe
the last of the green peppers that were supposed to be yellow.

almost paced three miles
most of that indoors; due to
saturating rains

(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.

ik 99
for May 2015

Elfje and haiku :
Walk Tall

walk
straight, true
head held high
melting the miles of
day
*
nine small miles addressed
may seem like a scant distance
when happily done

when successfully achieved
where all the goals that were set
*

Additional note: yard work, spring cleaning, garage sale
surfing (and finding), and an enjoyable evening walk with family.
