Surgeon's precision
Connecting bones and tendons
So glad it's not me.

Tranquility Interrupted

Early morning calm.
Deep breathes, eyes drift shut. But then
the puppy wakes up.

Lesson #3

A shriek. Screeching, then
Sputtering, grinding, growling.
Shifting into first.


Frosty mist rises
revealing the still water
of the Grand River.

Basketball, health care,
new car, birthday dinner, and
an amazing race.

March Nineteenth

Snow blankets the ground.
Quiet, solitude. I think
spring is on delay.

March Madness

Sunshine, college hoops.
Two forces conspiring to
keep me from my work.

St. Patrick's Day

A four-leaf clover,
green shirt and mug of green beer.
Birthday tradition.

How does that song go?
Robin red-breast in the sky...
Yep, that's what we've got.

Daylight Savings

When four becomes five,
morning comes too soon for me.
The puppy cares not.

To My Husband

Happy birthday, love.
For seven days you will be
Older than me. *snort*

Almost Spring

The sun peeks through clouds,
melting, warming, bringing life.
Spring is on its way.

To My Followers

I want to thank you
for writing the absolute
best comments ever.

Friday at 3pm

I'm off (in the van)
so wish me luck with driving
and the interview.


Dresses swirling 'round,
satin, tulle and taffeta.
Princess for a day.

I'm searching for words,
wanting my friends to submit.
Do you have haiku?

The Best Laid Plans

Coffee, music -- check.
Closed facebook and twitter -- check.
Now dog wants to play.


*rubs hands together*
Twitter, you aren't the only
website with new words.


Boy scouts, asbestos,
shavers, fish oil, dog fences...
Now: affidavits.

The license is mine,
but now the library says,
"No card for you." *sigh*

One More Try

I come to you, oh
fickle government office.
My dream - a license.
