Haiku for Writer's Club & Update

Death Awaits

You haunt me in my slumber
Be gone leave me be
I will wake to live again

I have never attempted a Haiku so I thought I'd give it a whirl for the Writer's Club. Haiku is a Japanese poem with seventeen syllables, 3 lines of five, seven and five. The writer's club is a fun place to be creative. Every two weeks you get choices of pictures and you can express what you see by writing a poem, Haiku, or short story.

On my side bar is a precious little girl that has been fighting cancer. I have followed her journey and am thrilled to report she is now cancer free! AMEN She has surgeries to go through to help fix the damage of the cancer, so she still needs our prayers. You go Rebekah!

I'm going to commute with Dave on Monday, because he works where Michelle lives. She has her 1st apartment and wants me to see it. She's taking me for a girl's day out! I get to experience Dave's 4 hour per day commute. That's $450/month in gas here in ole California and that's with every other Friday off. Eighteen months and counting for Dave's retirement. WooHoo!

Way to go with the haiku! Perfect words to go with that picture, too. Yay for you!

Good grief, I cannot imagine a 4-hour daily commute. Ugh.

Excellent news about that precious little girl.

::smile and hug::

That is a grueling commute. He's a keeper (but you know that). I'm happy for Rebekah, too.

Thanks for keeping us posted about her.

The haiku was the best one I've read. At first it made me a little sad, thinking it was about your ALS. But then I realized it was beautiful, because of the positivity of it and you are telling death to piss off for one more day.

Then I got sad again when I thought of all of the people who are muddling through life without this warriors heart.

your 17 syllables had an impact on me.

I can't imagine a commute like that anymore and I use to live in San Diego...

I bet you'll be thrilled when he is with you all the time.
