I run from stress like
a fox chases its prey
Maintaining my calm

Haiku: Focus and Stray

haiku focus stray

Focus on the task

My mind wanders to the beach

Just one more stray shell


I am always dreaming of the beach when I should be doing my work. My hubs collected all of the sea glass in this photo in Cape May, NJ. This is a small fraction of the sea glass we have. I do not have the eye nor the patience for finding such gems.

Haiku Promise and Gift

haikupromiseandgiftI had a very stressful week at work. I had to deal with a couple of very unpleasant situations. I made it to the other side and I feel like I combated some fears I had. This past week left me feeling stronger and appreciative of each day I have to accept new challenges.

Enjoy my haiku this week. Our words are promise and gift. Visit my friend ronovanwrites to participate in the creative fun.

His spirit takes flight.
A great man, lives a great life.
To heaven he soars.
