(g/s/f) Carrot Ranch Invitation: Spell… Bound? (10.12)

Carrot Ranch Invitation: Spell… Bound?
(OctaTimbre with a Septolet haibun)

There is excitement in the air for me
I am stretching my wings, embracing something different
There is a slight tremble, shadow of fear…
No one will want to come and play
The enchantment of creating is the rainbow lure
Who will nibble and possibly take the bait?
Nerves rattle like the moistureless leaves just waiting…
To fall …will they be crushed under foot?
Will I be a successful mage with my
Willow wand in hand and cast my spell

Interrupt time
Interpret space

There is
No race
Just a
Hope for
For participants…

The Write Words
(Shadorma, pi ku, Cherita)

Little Miss
Has a Grama day –
Jam packed full;
Walk, play, lunch,
Snacks, making booklets, games, and
Filling the feeder

a little
nap
gives Gram a rest

Some days teachers need off too

To recharge and rewrite lessons
For those in their care –

Different schools have different days
So, while Little Miss was here today –
Son of Son’s turn is on Friday

(g) Delightful Day (6.17)

Delightful Day

A
Walk full
Of errands this
Morning, racking up our
Steps

A
Free screening
At the local
Store, brunch and the
Bank

All
Before the
Brief rains came
Greening the potted garden
Plants

Time
For fun
After all that
He played golf, I
Read

Dinner
Before dusk –
Time for one
More chore or even
Two

(g/s) ‘fore’ warned! (5.11)

‘fore’ warned!

paved path for golf carts
do not make good walking trails
unless you play golf

though there are a few times that
the cart may ride on the grass

the public ought to
find paths where ‘Fore’ needn’t be
a warning to hear

Note: not all the paved cart paths are connected.

(g) Mid January (1.18) wp

Mid January

another full grey day
of rain
this winter, warm yet also cold

homemade stew
helps
to warm the soul

once the rain stops its
sky pouring the squirrels hop
among the treetops

creek rises
ducks
frolic and play

forecast says amid the
clouds and
mist, the temp will rise, odd weather
