LIGHT: so sweet
(renga series ending with a haiku)

mini cannoli
shells await a light filling;
ricotta cheese white

sugar, pistachios too
into cup shells baked crispy

with chocolate coats
around their rims to smooth out
some imperfections

homemade gifts to take to lunch
and dinner with family

days filled with laughter
so much joy, with young and old
…over the river

IK 413 for December 2016 wp

IK 413

slight dusting
a winter’s breath

Coating, however
Brief, followed by
Bone chilling rain covering


Inspired by: the little things in life are
as interesting as the big ones
From: Instant Karma by Barbara Ann Kipfer
8,879 ways to give yourself and others
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 Elfje; five line verse of 11 words and
line/syllable count; tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8 and or pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4
are my interpretations of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

the morning after (the big snow)

the morning after (the big snow)

at five just a bit of cloud cover over
the moon; one giant eye in the sky
highlighting the latest snowfall, the
trees look like they are sugar coated

over an hour attacking the heap
the city plow left; barely a dent – for
one car to pass into the cleared
street (two hour delay for some)…

at that hour one neighbor walks a dog,
another gets stuck trying to move
her car… where to pile the snow…
almost too high for me to heave-ho it
over what mounds already exist –
but the paper was delivered – at six
I wake him for his turn…after all he
with the major roads clear he will go…

into work…he stayed home yesterday,
though that didn’t stop him from working –
his phone ringing almost none-stop.
between the shoveling and show blowing…
and during the lull between the storms.


(Thanks. No. …I don’t tweet)

Sweet Reminders

Lines made in sugar frosting
Are fleeting
Birthday wishes with some roses
Are for eating
Frosting made of sugar can draw you in…
