Isabella

Rare baths for
Queen Isabella –
Birth, marriage.

The latter
So groom was spared from
Holding nose.

Through ages, men have puzzled over life
As to its purpose, meaning, and the end;
The issue, more than love and all the strife:
From whence we came? and which way do we wend?

We see the flow, like waters of a lake,
A constant stream that’s entering this earth,
As others, flowing forth, death’s journey take –
Between, the brief sojourn that starts at birth.

Just as a team runs players through the drills,
To fill its roster, find the qualified,
The special few with heart, desire, and skills,
This life is testing ground where men are tried.

On earth, we’re planted so that God may find
Which ones are suited for the heav’nly kind.

Wait Till I Move

Coconut,
Don’t drop now on my
Coconut.

——————–

 

The Lies Some Tell

Just kiss me.
I’m telling the truth:
I’m a prince.

Life’s Stage

Curtain closed,
The audience waits
For a birth.

Guard Dog, Resting

 

Eyes? Okay.

But look at the ears –

Half alert.

To The Horizon

 

A city –

Crowded: men, buildings –

An ocean.

Not Worshiped

An idol,
Many years ago,
Lost a bet.

Hush, Hush, Sweet Scarlett

Yes, Scarlett?
Brett, get off the couch –
Mow the grass!

——————–

Birth

Each baby
Out of the darkness
Into light.

Haiku Chronicle of Oct.26, 2011

Hospital Waiting

Nine-thirty;
Eleven, twelve plus –
Music plays!

——————————-

Five Pounds, Ten Ounces

Spindly limbs;
A bit underweight –
PawPaw’s pride.

——————————-

And Then

Two early
Weeks make for weak lungs
Breath in pants.

——————————-

It’s A Bird; It’s A…

In the sky! –
A helicopter:
Grandaughter.

——————————-

Irony

Copter ride:
Only one kinsman –
A newborn.

——————————-

Gospel (Good News)

Diagnosis:
Fluid on her lungs –
Drying up

——————————

Ups And Downs

Like her chest
Day of emotions
Ends on up.

—————————–

The Night

Exhausted;
Slept well, like…like…like
A baby.

—————————-

My daughter gave birth yesterday about 12:30 pm to a little girl (our second grandaughter).  Two weeks early, she had breathing problems that were thought to be caused by a lack of elasticity in her lungs.  The doctor said she wasn’t producing the protein at a fast enough rate.  About 7:30, she was airlifted to a medical center about 60 miles away that could get a synthetic version of the protein into her lungs and solve her problem.  Upon arrival, the doctors there decided she had some fluid in her lungs that was drying up and that she was already doing better.  It was a day I decided to chronicle in the haiku above, most of which I wrote last night before going to bed and finished up this morning.  We’ve been blessed… again.
