Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: It’s Not What You think

Faded memory
Soft like my old flannel shirt
Comfortable, well-worn

Wrinkled like my face
Old stories adopt new lines
Twice as much to tell

Haiku: Reflection Pool

Frost touched little tree
Autumn leaves fluttered to ground
Formed crimson puddle

Haiku: New Sky View

Crescent moon still up
Faint pink blush on horizon
Sun a lazy bones

Passing Strangers

On a sunny day in Mexico
Sitting on a high stool at a high table
Eating a delicious morsel, savoring solitude
I noticed a man walking toward me
Vintage-aged and lost in thought.

Lazily I noted his white t-shirt
Imprinted with an Indian in a feathered head-dress
Cleveland I immediately concluded
Then corrected myself
Chicago Black Hawks! Aha! I was a hockey mom.

The gentleman passed by
I spoke quietly “Go Black Hawks”
He looked at me, blue eyes now focused
Responding in kind, “Go Black Hawks”
He smiled, said “Thank you” and moved on.

The sunny day in Mexico
A beam of human interaction
Warmed my soul I feel it still.
I pray our fractured world
Will be surprised to recognize such commonality.

Haiku: Winter Sky Watch

Small patch of pink clouds
Lit by sun just coming up
Previews things to come

Sisters Saga

I’m closing up shop for a couple of weeks. Tomorrow my sister and I are heading to Mexico to the place where I’ve been vacationing for the past twenty years. This is a first for us. We no longer have husbands and are having an extended girl’s getaway. It will be a fun adventure. I expect to return with some good stories.

Apricot Days

Now is my favorite time of Autumn
Apricot leaves glow in cool days soft sunlight
Mellow like pumpkin-spice latte
Delicious they warm me
I’m happy to linger and live in the now.

A Rose By Any Other Name

In June when I visited my son Donovan Hart he gave me a remarkable gift. He put in my hands a book titled Enscribing the Heavens from This Side by Ina Hamilton Hart. Donovan had collected Cronechronicler posts written by Vivachange77 from May 2014 through April 2016 and had them published by Amazon. He wrote the pieces about the book and the author on the last page and on the back of the book. My granddaughter Leela contributed her drawing of a crone.

Over the summer we made a few edits. In September Donovan published the book in paperback and on Kindle. Last week Colleen Chesebro ~ Fairy Whisperer reviewed my book on her blog and posted her review on Amazon.com. So far so good. I wanted to shout my news to the blog world but wasn’t clear how to do this. Then I discovered that Amazon.com misspelled Cronechronicler on their website in a subtitle they added. Amazon made the correction for me. When I checked, I was dismayed to find that now capital letters were missing from the main title. Twice I’ve talked to someone at Amazon who promised to fix the problem, but to no avail. It is like a Rubix cube puzzle I can’t solve.

I began my blog with the intention of creating a legacy of family stories and writing new stories and poems revealing the woman I am becoming. I am delighted to have a real book to give to family members and friends. I don’t know a sleek way of inserting a blue link in a blog post to let my followers know where to find my book. If you go to Amazon.com the old-fashioned way and write Enscribing the Heavens from This Side it will take you to my book. Disregard the absence of capital letters and some weird punctuation. It is still a rose.
