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.

What the Holidays Mean to My 7 Year Old Nephew

What the holidays mean to me
Candy in your stocking
presents in a box
playing basketball wearing new underwear and socks
all the food and
all the thanks being given to you.
making the toast- it will be charming, funny and true
play with your presents
maybe eat  cookies and drink some milk
and put on sweaters made of silk
Take down the stockings
And remember to say bye to all
and try not to fall

I cheated today. I am posting a cool poem written by my nephew Tyson. I love him to bits!!

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.

Hearts.

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