You don't know where you are going. You don't know how to get there. And you arrive just the same. Ghanaian saying

Haiku: Recess

Sprightly Autumn fun
Leaves are playing London Bridge
All are falling down

Crisp chill in the air
Bright splotch of orange in oak tree
Fall shows its colors

Squirrel runs on tree limb
Noisy acorn bombardment
Strikes metal table

Howling strong wild wind
Tossed trees sent things skittering
Sun today all calm

Haiku: Procrastination

Temperatures warm
Stubborn leaves on trees still green
Summer flowers bloom

Autumn will arrive
Splendid colors flaming bright
In her own good time

Company’s Gone Home

Summer came inside today
Windows opened wide
Cooling breeze a welcome guest
Heat wave passed with holiday
Hugged relatives and said goodbye
Quiet is settling in

Squirrel is lounging on a branch
Hidden by green oak tree leaves
Cardinal heard but bird not seen
Wind chimes and lovely laughter sounds
Music charming to my ears
Today is calm and bright

Sparkling blue of swimming pool
Invitation to dive in
Turn onto my back and float
Let cares drift away
Old cliché but useful here
Too lazy to create.

Summer’s green noises
Early morning birds chirping
Oak tree leaves rustling

Passages

Summertime six years ago
I settled in this space
Unpacked and put my memories
On walls and table tops
In places I found evidence
Of occupant who came before
Tiny holes in closet door
Suggest a place to hang his ties
Apartment life is transitory
I put roots down none the less
Created my new home.

These past six years began a tale
Chapters of unexpected change
So many things I used to do
No longer are within my reach
My apartment is the same
It is I who have a different view
I will re-member cherished gifts
Grieve and lay them to the side
Look out the window at the tree
Watch pink clouds at early dawn
Embrace anew life’s mystery.

Squirrel begins day
Admires nature’s handiwork
Breakfasts on tree buds
