(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

OctaTimbre: wordplay on the month of October; an 8 x 10 verse form:
Eight letters (same or different words, symbols), syllables or words by ten lines; in a single or multiple series of stanza. Created in honor of the month of October – octo being 8 and 10 – the tenth month on the secular calendar (by JulesPage September 30th, 2017)
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

Observing 19
Spring Reaction; Go!
(haibun with renga)

Another year another change in policy
To protects the worker bees and families
Time for checking in with healthcare providers,
(Especially when there has been some lapse).
Test here test there, then wait for results –
Though some are put on notice for further trials.
The body that has aged mostly in good health
Might have a surprise or two after a few miles.

and in between components
things are that should nought

so another appointment
for investigation looms

things are going to
be put right and corrected
below the layers

(Note: While physicals should be annual and perhaps other tests in different
cycles, sometimes they are not. Not all tests can be done at the same office.
I am though so far, in fairly good shape for the shape I’m in…).

ik 261
(Collom Lune series)
rescued

spider builds webs –
belongs not behind the door;
no flies there

tissue swept into
a small container and transported
out of doors

little web slinger
hangs by their thread swung
into the ivy

still warm enough
at eight in the evening
to be saved…

hardly time to
blink all those little eyes
at the surprise!

ik 114
for May 2015

haiku and Shadorma:
Keep Birthdays Simple

age is relative
enjoy every present day
your presence is best
*
daze of days
at eighteen gifts stop
at least for
that one side
when every day is a gift
they are all special
*
a card would be nice
phone calls are good, but sometimes
a surprise ‘could do’

10.25 …the beginning…

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/10/carpe-diem-589-zentsu-ji-february-march.html

10.25 …the beginning…

swept in a pile
willow, chestnut, maple, oak
child sees fallen leaves

yet does not understand death;
the beginning of her life

she repeats ‘surprise’
in the joy of her playing
crushing, tossing; leaves

2014 Joy 23

2014 Joy 23

looking through three yards distant to the bend of the creek – a surprise; the
heron I had not seen since spring, even three hundred feet away – still majestic

pi ku

bag flapping?
no –
resting heron

Note: the heron must have been a tad curious too, because later in the day
he came into my yard (I saw through my window) – maybe looking for me?
