Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Canine Roomba

on May 16, 2017

Mother’s Day dinner
Grandma’s plate took a tumble
Inelegant scene

Whistled to clean up
Max licked up crumbs with gusto
Trusty pre-tech tool

    The so well chosen & sparseness of your words brings the event into quick sharp focus. Oh so well done.

    It also calls to mind an Easter and a collie dog flying over a picnic table snatching a huge ham.
    So funny. Had not thought of that incident in years. Thank you .
