(g) Stir Crazy? (7.10)

Stir Crazy?
(a haibun)

One batter, split
For oatmeal cookies
He wanted cranberries and mini coco chips
She only wanted the chocolate

There was enough to send home
A bag for him, a bag for her
(to share with Mommy and Daddy)
And some extra for the neighbor

A long day soon to end –
Started with a walk
As well as ended with one.
And now I’m done in…

I did learn though
That this was the one-hundredth day
That I’ve been with my exercise ‘program’
And received some bonus points

where have I been and
where shall I go – to the moon
and maybe I’ll return

©JP/dh

(My ‘program’ is mainly just walking – since starting almost at the beginning of April I’ve logged 2,005,247 steps, climbed 3454 floors (or have gone up steep inclines – the hills in my neighborhood or actual stair flights), and have traversed 850.4 miles.)

they said
he said
she said
but did any of them listen
take that single moment to think
before opening
their mouths?

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.

pickles

he likes dill, she, sweet
so they keep them both on hand –
they live with humor

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/10/carpe-diem-little-creatures-7-sokans.html

Kaeru= frog in Japanese (at least one meaning).

kaeru chirps briefly
for autumn; then she burrows
deep in the creek mud

the frog respectfully recites
his poem

a frog in front of the fireplace –
the cry of a stork
