Continuing Inspiration

Tomorrow I fly away to West Virginia to a Crafts Center to engage in a class on creative writing. I’ll be back with new ideas and energy in a couple of weeks.

Haiku: Patch Work

Memories unique
Filaments of time gone by
Rearranged in mind.

No two are alike
Even in same family
Tales shape crazy quilt.

Haiku: A Different Tune

Once upon a time
Rhythmic rocking chairs on porch
Uncles, aunts spun tales.

Now new harmonies
Ear buds create inner beat
Grandkids deaf to past?

Haiku: Eternally Spring Hopes

Subtle change occurs
Cooling breezes warm my heart
Winter chill is gone.

Tee shirts put away
Pulled from chest have fresh appeal
I feel young today.

Haiku: Heavenly Fanfare

Warm sun carpets floor
Bare toes wriggle in delight
Arms outstretched I breathe.

Birds fly tree to tree.
Open window lets in breeze
Calls me to come out.

New buds everywhere
Dandelion’s yellow stars
Constellation Spring.

Greeting the morning
Rising sun beams flood alley.
Spring! Maybe today?

Haiku: Uncertain Conclusions

Yesterday was warm
Today went out minus hat
Shivered in the cold.

So the wise ones say
Single sparrow not a sign
Season change complete.

Haiku: Altered Plans

April-foolish trick
Snow last night a fairyland
Turned to ice today

Sidewalk crackling sounds
Signal walk at your own risk
Wise to wait for spring
