A few days behind
the Vernal equinox, we’ve bloomed
despite containment

Super Bloom 💐 🦋


On my paid commute
I’ve seen it a time or two
The California “Super Bloom”

I’ve even been blindsided
By the breathtaking migrants
Causing an array of excitement

Enthralled by the views (and news)
Billions of butterflies & touristy pursuits
I took this lousy picture for you

Haiku #317 – 320

Another blanket
of snow, a winter cover
white down comforter
~
A sight to be seen
glistening on mountain peaks
crisp, clad and pristine
~
Clouds retreat, blue skies
give way to vibrant sun rays
all thoughts melt away
~
A rebirth awaits
deep, underneath to spring up
near a flowing creek

Singing In The Rain 🌧 ☔️

The ominous clouds were swirling an’ whirling
As we set out on this cold, dark dreary morning
Winds howled out a treacherous warning
All elements of nature urging us not to go
Whether it was stubbornness that showed
Our routine wouldn’t simply fold against the cold
About halfway through we really knew
The forecasts and signs were about to come true
But we pushed forward because we had to

Slow and random fat drops went splat
We picked up the pace and doubled back
A mile away from home the rain came down fast
You can lead the way, but you can’t stop the rain
And that’s okay cause we found our hearts singing today

Caught


Even when you’re the subject of quarry
There’s always two sides of a story
Found deep in the canyon of thoughts
Where you become disoriented and lost

Adrenaline flows; lashing out in spite
Fight or flight; from morning to night
Two wrongs make it right; a logical fallacy
Resulting in madness from the certainty

A rockslide of emotion caused by failure
Gives way to a notion belonging to nature
Taking its course thru silent destruction
Alienation serves as soul survival function

The luck you’ve got, know it’s not for naught
Between the sun & moon you find yourself caught
