Haiku for Actuality

Moments always pass
Time stops if you will it to
We are not the same

Dance Slippers

Despite new shoes, I continue to walk worn paths,
to revel in familiar reels, tried and true two-steps,
heel to toe, apace with my own stride, the earth
pushes away with each tendon’s flex, en pointe,
pas de un, atilt arabesque, low to the ground,
homage to the sky, frequent pirouettes
braced at the knee, a dervish, a devilish imp
with an ancient glint of sun, nay stars, in her eyes.

“There is a correct way,” he said. “Toilet paper flowing top or bottom of the roll.”

Haiku for Winter Day

Snow freshly fallen
The promise behind chaste vows
Silence in the air

Homecoming – a cherita

I drove all night

Through the song of wind
and the drum of vibrant rain

The dance of my being
soaked to the spirit’s core
anticipating once again seeing you

Please see Celestine @ Reading Pleasure for some of the best cherita that wordpress has to offer


It was so good to have it all behind me,
until I realized there was nothing ahead.

Last To Do List

Water plants; feed sourdough starter; write note; silently, gently, kiss her farewell
