Haiku Friday 4/24/09

Haiku Friday
俳句の金曜日

Standing on tiptoes
reaching into the blue sky
fresh air stretching lungs.

One track mind, I have;
kinda silly I s'ppose, but
my smile train rolls on.

Time can be too short
so I'll stand tall looking up
to snatch down my star.

Life's what we make it
with the pieces that we have
building custom dreams.

Laying on the grass
cool dampness invigorates
breathing in my life.

  9. Lovely. Truly lovely. Yes, one dream has not worked out for you Maggie, but this one has, and I am so very happy for you, and so happy you have a man that not only will let you live this dream, but he really supports it, and you, and will share in it with you with at least one visit to Japan. I'm hoping for both your sakes it will be two visits. :-)
