(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…

busy start to the weekend
(extended renga)

a grand performance
by three year olds’, turning four;
their last day of school

then onto ‘Grama’s’ house for
some one on one time for play

afternoon saw the
six year old joining the fun
almost to the eve

then ‘Grama’ slipped off to the
neighbors for some adult time

traveling spouse then
joined the group sharing some beer
wine, champagne and snacks

Just Karma 57 for March 2016 wp

Just Karma 57
warm at ten
(three haiku)

single daffodil
brilliant yellow brings delight
to a little girl

good weather brings out
the neighbors; babies, dogs;
we stop, say ‘hello’

time for soap bubbles
Little Miss makes magic too;
rainbow circles pop

ik 326 Joy 26 for January 2016 wp

Joy in Opportunity to Serve

Jonas the blizzard
has shut down most of the city
and schools for a second day –
While it might be impossible to know
every neighbor…it was nice to see how ours
helped and continue to help
each other during this trying time.
*
Even in the drizzle, fighting night crusted snow –
the neighbor chiseled more waist high snow from the sidewalk
that by law must be clear…

Inspired by: Band together as neighbors to help a neighbor in need.
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.

Joy in Helping Hands

When helping neighbors
dig out from the blizzard –
(known as Jonas ‘16)
take all the time needed
to work together to clear
the path

(Over twenty four inches in twenty four hours
this will be a slow melt…
Possibility for more on Thursday.)

time well spent

weather and whether –
sunshine, downpours, neighbors who
stay up until three

street traffic out the ground floor
window, odd buzz from upstairs

air conditioning –
needed, yet annoying too.
