quote haiku

This week Chevrefeuille challenged us to write a haiku based on this quote from Confucius

“it does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”

caterpillar crawls
slowly from leaf tip to stem
munching on milkweed

led by black and white mother
floating on river

with my camera I capture you
reveal hidden details

fine veins on tender wings
yellow pollen on body and legs

monarch will you fly high
to live or stay and fade away

Vacation

Vacation

We quibbled over vanilla or chocolate
Frozen custard or hand churned
Strolled on the boardwalk

Bought matching T-shirts we’ll never wear
Ate hot dogs with everything
Sipped Slurpees that turned our tongues blue

No cares, no worries, no hurry
Until the sun slipped below the horizon
And the sky put on its pink nighty

We glanced at each other, eye to eye
And our hearts winked
You wrenched the oars of our canoe

From their locks and paddled like a robot
Back to the secluded cabin on the lake
Vacation nirvana
