(g) OctaTimbre / A Fleeting Moment Captured (10.9)

A Fleeting Moment Captured
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

A surprise, at least call first, then
A quick little drop visit here
An opportunity for a
Photo opp of grands and their folks
Since they were running their errands
Now I’ve just got to run my own
Errands tomorrow and get some
Copies to send to relatives
To see how quickly the young ones
Grow… while their parents, seem ageless

Octa http://www.dictionary.com/browse/octa?s=t octa, octo meaning 8
Timbre http://www.dictionary.com/browse/timbre?s=t timbre because poetry can be like music

barely breathing
whisper wind; my voice
too far the relatives are…
silent – the earth hears

“Hear me, four quarters of the world – a relative I am!
Give me the strength to walk the soft earth,
A relative to all that is! Give me the eyes to see
and the strength to understand, that I may be like you.
With your power only can I face the winds.
Black Elk (1863-1950) Oglala Sioux holy man

The American 767

use both ears

listen during the long rides,
memorial service –
let relatives gather close

Inspired by: Leave some things unsaid.
from: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer

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.

Note: Car, train, service, gathering, train, car, home.
This I can do for my spouse. Honor and peace.

Created by Dennis L. Dean. The American 767 is:
a tristich, a poem in 3 lines. (Cool thing to know!)
syllabic, 7-6-7 syllables per line. Unrhymed.
The original prompt asked to include a bug. Not sure if that is part of the script.
But then I often go of script 🙂
