July 27th – In the children’s game, “Barrel of Monkeys”, you tried to link the arms of the monkeys to make a chain. Following the linking exercise of yesterday, we continue Haiku style. We will link haiku together. I will offer a start… :
offering hope for the day
sunlight surmounts hills
sending shadows scurrying
birds begin to sing
happiness creeps in–
a perfect start to the day
offerings this day
in malachite, azurite

Water poured, coffee fragrant
Tiny carafe, enough for two
Steamy warmth, Old Spice wafted
Dizzying through, our cozy room
~ Misty drizzle, gone by noon
Sandwiched in, aromatic loaf
Cheeses, a salad, yummy both
Sun tea fresh, enough for two
Breezing through, our afternoon.

A w a k e n s
Can live another day right here
A place where wonders reappear,
Each day dawns bright and winds its way
Through meaning deep, where moments stay.
By the Sea
A foggy morning setting in
I open window, fragrance in
Organic coffee, ballpoint pen
A pad of paper, I poem.
This body, this soul warming
A new energy.
(Without my laptop this week, thus, no images 😦 )
After the Storm, Peace
Are you ready for
And when it comes
Can you run for
Because, one thing is for
You will never be the same after.

…First Day…Rest of Your Life…
How long is each and every moment
to last? And into song can I string them
all? How? A second, a minute, each two
miles passed? That smile, so fleeting, I missed it
somehow…Move slowly then, for day runs fast.

From A Distance, Peace
may I miss
nothing at all.
Lying in quiet, bliss
Remaining steady, not to fall
That rock in the distance, to me it calls:
“Let me surround you, building structure within
There I hold you…I will not let you fall,
And through your trust, I will stand tall
With strength you cannot miss.”
Nothing at all
will I miss
