listen for yourself; you’ll shudder in agreement

Haiku for today.

The day starts badly
When Dylan sings Sinatra.
I go back to bed.

Haiku for today:

Oh, little red bike
Indestructible mobile
wheel me to where I’m going.

In the cold, and on ice, the bike on the street is faster and feels safer than feet on the uncleared ice-caked sidewalks.

For another day:

From Fei-Fei, dubious about her dad’s cooking. At 3-1/2, she’s already a tough customer:

Did you burn the food?
Can you pull it together?
Is there lunch today?

 

catching up

7 January 2015 — Catching up on daily poems.

The sun is shining,
I found the studio keys.
I’ll probably live.

Yesterday I stuck the keys in a book and couldn’t go to the studio. I almost cried. Now I feel better.

I shop for yogurt
Avoiding pectin, corn starch.
It’s not so easy.

Yogurt is supposed to me just milk and the little germs that transform it.

Tim’s resolutions:
no numbers, no cigarettes.
He’ll save a bundle.

He thinks quitting smoking and small-stakes gambling will keep a hundred dollars a week warm in his pocket.

the long and winding road

Haiku for today (a day late):

A got a bit lost
On the wandering road home
By Maryland 28.

But I may have happened on to that abandoned gas station I have been looking for.  In my ear by audio book:  Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
