…enjoying summer 26

slow to ripen – round
globes hang heavy waiting for
the sun, after the rain

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?

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?
