Gently nudging our passions,
challenging our fears, desires, hidden dreams.
Through years, time gathers truths, lies, promises, successes and defeats to serve us at the end.
Bringing sun, moon, stars, to pass the time…
while we pass the years wondering
…are we doing it right?
Like seasons, we are new each year.
Sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker,
creating a new path in the freshly born year that lays ahead.
Given the gift of starting fresh,
what will we learn?
what will we teach?
The grass grows more quickly behind us
the weeds more quickly in front.
Throwing seeds ahead, we push to plant
before the weeds can grow.
Shining, sparkling colors bloom before
Like children taking their first step,
I strive for steady footing.
Absorbing the shock, backed by
the power of love, I won’t fall off.
‘Spring Formation 1’ by Inez
what a lucky break…
felt your glance accross the room
A blush … now I’m yours
Haiku Horizons prompt “break”
Minutes passed while she waited for one last kiss. As she juggled from foot to foot, the anticipation of lateness, and a crowded, jarring, morning commute, only frustrated her more. Then, a warm hug, soft lips embracing deep, and real. She got to the station just as the train was slipping away into the dark tunnel, and she watched it ride away, with a twinkle in her eye.
Dictionary definition: Pleasing by delicacy or grace; not imposing
Can we simply be … pretty?
Keep meandering tragic influences
by behaving … pretty
riding through the night
embracing on subway trains
lovers come and go …

“It’s so calm to watch you knit”
Sweet start to my day
did you heed your call
respond with a loving cheer
or hide your life away
