#364 of 365 – 5 Haiku

5 Haiku


hard to concentrate

on today when tomorrow

is the finish line



lifelines from a friend

back when I was drowning; old

shoe-box of letters



ad-libs written out

to make me seem natural

first day of teaching



“idiots, morons!”

accelerated cursing

me behind the wheel



watching baseball; my

daughter sitting right next to

me―my ears ringing

      Awww…thanks Ron! I’m so grateful you’ve stuck with me…your friendship, readership, and comment-ing-ship 😉 has and continues to mean so so much.

      And, what next? Hmmmmmm…well, I’ll still be posting…just not every single night. I’m sure T is looking forward to having that last hour of the night back — with me I mean. Countless times(usually) I’ve been totally absorbed and panicky from around 8pm on, if I hadn’t written anything yet. So, a little more focus on sculpting, and a little more focus on my sweetie(for starters). Also thinking about bringing out the ole camera…couple projects I want to do.

      And of course, I’ll be able to relax and read more of my fellow-bloggers. But stay tuned…what ever I do, it’ll be posted same bat-time, same bat-channel!

      Many many x’s and o’s to you!
