Amazing (Haiku for Laura)

Feel another's joy
Let it swell in your own soul
A blessing for all.


Sleep, it eludes me
My thoughts thunder so loudly
Yet, he snores in peace.

New Day

This heart is so full
Optimistic, wide open
Today, I say yes.

Turn on your bright light
Remove the bushel basket
You are only love.

A Writer Writes (Again)

I mentioned to someone recently, "In my head, I fancy myself a writer." She then asked what I had been writing... I had to admit: NOTHING. She responded with respectful truth, and said, "Well, dear if you're not writing, you're not a writer." SO... This is from whence the haikus now come, the desire to BE a writer, rather than just talk about it. Getting the juices flowing, albeit 17 syllables at time.

Yes, a writer writes
Syllables dance in my brain
Arranged now, just so.


Road trip, windows down
Sometimes the breeze is cut grass
Others, chicken poop.

Relaxing by the pool at my Mom's, enjoying the sun and birds spontaneous songs. Woke up to find bird crap on my shoulder. Nature = awesome, with a side of funny, just for me.

Get a grip, they say
But a closed fist can't receive;
Let love move on through.


Tired eyes, too late
The meteor shower comes
Streaks blessing my dreams.

Downward dog tremble
In the plank pose, drops of sweat
I do love myself.

Ode to Cheetos

Cheesy goodness crunch
Bag bottom found much too soon
Orange-fingered shame
