Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Brand New Day: Back to Basics

I walk with a cane
Hiking staff put to new use
I like style and flair

Chic has its limits
No disguising poor balance
I sought therapy

Baby steps trained me
I’m a whiz on the gym floor
A wimp out-of-doors

Summoned my courage
Planned to navigate sidewalk
Leading home from church

Tucked cane under arm
Walked just like I remembered
Arrived unafraid

Earth warms in secret
Precious green gifts creating
First crocus pops up

Rain pings window pane
Feet warm in old moccasins
Feel softness of sox

Haiku: New Math

Long planned trip cancelled
Calendar blessedly free
The respite I need

A marvelous thing
Subtracting equals adding
Result less is more

Eye Spy

Dreary airport sounds.
Calls to flights and cancellations
Conversations cell phone drone
Weariness pervades my bones.

People-watching changes scene.
Dramas large and small
Engage me with human race
Bringing smiles to my face.

Seeing families deplane
I spy a little boy
Following his mom and dad
Two smaller sisters in their arms.

His four-year-old self, I gage
All seriousness and firm endeavor
Pulling his own roller bag
Spider Man his hero buddy.

My heart filling to brim
I could not stop my face’s beam
Suddenly he turned his head
Shyly smiling back at me.

Haiku: Odd Birds

My new neighbors honk.
Pair of geese who winter spent
Flying patterns rare.

Standing on my roof
Bellies full from neighbors’ crumbs
They seem quite content.
