Today


Five seven five makes
my heart come alive. I am
a haiku addict.

Made a yummy cake
for dear friends who visited.
Not one bite for me!

Cleaned out my closet,
filled big bags with clothes too small,
sewed missing buttons.

Chinese medicine,
talk and pins and cups and herbs,
energy returns.

Hello, how are you?
Spare some change? No? Then how 'bout
a five dollar note?

Walking in the rain,
Little 'un wrapped nice and warm.
Winter's truly here.

Making a clearing.
Tiring work but in the end
there's more room for joy.
