Your Apprenticeship

.

Most people

won’t realize that

writing is a craft.

You have to take

your apprenticeship in it

like anything else.”

savor

taste good

sweet and sour

food hits the spot

flavor

Haiku:

.

daylight starts to wane

cool mornings herald winter

migrations begin

.

Poem:   no rhyme today, just a prose rambling

.

a little bird sitting upon a line
don’t do it, don’t do it,  don’t
he did it
poor  Miguel

he opened his thermos
the soup was cold

he opened his bucket
the bread had mold

he was too close to the mud puddle
when the bus came along

he was one number off
when the lotto was drawn

it was just one of those days
when nothing went right

along came Sofia
for Miguel a perfect sight

isn’t it wonderful how love
makes everything alright

Really Thankful

“If you are

really thankful,

what do you do?

You share.”

Share

give out

from the heart

to anyone in need

contribution

Haiku:

migration begun

springs harbinger of new birth

first robin sighting

Poem:

.

songbirds welcome the morning light
the sun chases the chilled morning dew
butterflies move with an erratic flight
the strong coffee tastes like witches brew
breakfast a porridge of curds and whey
God’s design begins another day

the pencil recalls many happy mornings
drawing  images from a time long past
recalling troubles when we ignored mothers warnings
cherishing happy moments that cannot be surpassed
enjoying today, a future memory
having an attitude to bring about reverie

time slows the mind and body
moments recollected, sorted by feelings
winter mornings warmed by a hot toddy
summer splashes punctuated by squealings
the fortunate remember a successful relationship
treasuring what was an everlasting courtship

even though the imagination was just pretending
the truth could never write a better ending
