it started when…
i remembered my brassiere was too tight
i began to wiggle and pluck….
and so did my girl with bigger size cup, it was contagious so to speak
we all began to giggle ’til we almost peed
(because, heck, we’re over 40, and that may just happen)
we were laughing…. so hard
we forgot what kicked off the cacklin’…
one by one, we begin to catch our breath
soaked faces and tear-drenched napkins
(Collective breath) Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!
then, here she goes… (the one with the closet full of sport intimates)
“well, did you fix it?!”
…which sent us tumbling back into endless jest…
Hibernate in frost.
You are my tropic, my summer.
My spring, hold me, love.
I disagree with what most say.
Love is not just love
It can take you away…
…on a moon beam or starship.
On a sunray while you daydream…
…it can take root
and ground you.
Love can make you stay…
…the bridge between me and you,
it can fill you full
when it’s true..
…it widens the heart,
unleashes you from your past
…and burrows deep into your soul.
It enlivens your spirit.
You can’t help but hear it…
…singing in soprano notes and
in bass, when it’s low, slow
…if you have felt loved before then you know what I am saying
You know when you have Love;
You’re heart is never the same…
…the moments we number by the breathes we take;
we cherish those same moments when love takes our breath away…
There is no point in playing
when you could be, simply…
Watering plants spawns
new leaves. All we need to grow
our roots is His love!
…how I stumbled onto “His Love in Haiku (In Seven Days).” I simply, one day, decided to challenge myself to experiment with the non-rhyming verse form, and the Haiku’s limited 5-7-5 syllabic structure. See, obvious. The seasonal, weather –environmental references came first– and, then, a good bit of my spiritual faith kicked in and the “He” emerged. “His Love” is God’s love in all forms: hope, fury, mercy, grace, etc. And that is the beautiful part…
I’ll share with you one more thing…. I’m still writing the seventh day. 🙂 I hope to finish it by the time the sixth day emerges here… until then, I hope you keep reading!!
