Haiku Friday 2/8/08

Haiku Friday

俳句の金曜日

Not smoking now for
two hundred thirty-six days,
how sweet the deep breaths.

Chantix in the news,
some scary information,
glad it worked for me.

~*~*~*~*~*~

Best latte ever,
*EVER* I tell you, then spill'd
on my damn keyboard.

Reasoning with me
became difficult as I
licked between the keys...

Always wonderful,
Tom helped me with the mess and
had a spare keyboard.

This is why it pays
to love a sweet gamer guy
who has key spare parts...

...and who also knows
magic stuff about making
replacement lattes!

~*~*~*~*~*~

New updates on the
stuff I can't say other days?
None yet. Tom is here.

Obviously, right?
Given the latte above.
I might miss those most.

I feel encouraged
since others have been apart
and just got stronger.

Many thanks to those
who shared long distance stories
or just said they cared.

Ours is easier than most,
no military reason
and not in harm's way.

(Those are the strong ones,
the ones who have my respect
and heartfelt good thoughts)

Nope, for us it's just
a temporary absence
because we dare hope!

Chasing destiny,
grabbing it by the ear lobes
making it our own...

...telling it our dreams
instead of idly waiting
is empowering.

There's sure to be some
unexpecteds; then again
we do expect them.

OK, that's enough.
No more cryptic for right now.
More vague next Friday. ;)

  6. I quit smoking in 2000 and still LOVE those deep breaths. Funny how you don't even realize that your breathing is limited when you smoke!

  16. I still say LD is not as difficult as you imagine. And, it makes you focus on communication, which most relationships lack. Our 4 years made our relationship work.
