My seat mate, an addition

That little lady was a complete stranger. A sampling of our conversation:

Me: What grade are you in?
Girl: First.
Girl: I'm seven.
Me: Do you want to guess how old I am?
Girl: Umm....84?

Day 7, Haiku week complete

i'm a haiku dream
reeling in discovery
bursting at my seams

Day 6, Still

driving in the rain
a fleeting bit of silence
found under a bridge


Day 5

too gray for my state
i long for abundant sun
to lift my spirit

Day 4, Hannah + The Olive Garden

throwing dinner mints
only keeps us here longer
to see what comes next

Day 3, 6th grade memory

this will have to do
"the land of far and away"
scrawled out in marker

Day 2

for my sake, please stop
stop or you will suffocate
being so contained

5-7-5 Haiku

filling all the space
unbiased in its holding
water comforts us
