(g) Fickle Spring Snows (3.13) wp

Observing 13
Fickle Spring Snows
(Elfje quad set)

Red
Cardinals eating
Green buds, yellow
Forsythia petals on the
Bush

Are
They aware
That our storm
Is somehow delayed a
Day

Slow
Moving just
Means once here
There may be more
Accumulation

Now
It’s due
Tuesday and Wednesday;
A foot to eighteen
Inches

(Of course the accumulation depends on where you are;
But even 6” – 8”s will cause enough grief on the roads –
And it still is very bitter cold. Just 18 F at 8 am)

Spring Into Action
(Elfje series)

Slow
Going, winter
Lingers, yet one~
Ought be quick on
Repairs!

Wait
Not for
The ‘MayPop’ tire
To ~ do damage Before
Replacement!

Much
Is out
Of your control;
Maintenance is a not
one!

Note: The MayPop is what it implies, a weak tire ‘may pop’ at a most inconvenient
time as well as cause an accident! Know your car and keep it safe!

Love 20
fulfillment?
(haiku)

conflicted heart beats
fast, slow, warm, cold, new and old;
then there is silence

Just Karma 85 for May 2016 wp

Just Karma 85
Some Array
(Collom Lune series)

Breakfast, errands about
Before a quiet day begins;
Taking it slow

Trading daffodil bulbs
For mushrooms and sesame seeds
A pleasant evening

Transition into night
Headache increases with weather change
Retire to rest

Midnight tolls and
Ghosts demand attention; “Look. Now!”
She actively screams

After due diligence
Putting the beast to bed…
The nightmares return

Guessing games taunt;
Surprises are not always good
Rattling one’s marrow

How responsible can
One be for another’s choices;
Divided by distance?

Just Karma 74
a tortoise day
(three 3,5,3 haiku series)

spring cleaning
success: box of books,
games are gone

challenging
in the yard with a
cooler breeze

found the sink,
did some cooking; slow
and steady

ik 324 Joy 24 for January 2016 wp

ik 324 Joy 24
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.)

Inspired by: Walk slowly.
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.
