OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m caught in traffic – five o’clock,
And everything is slowed.
The cheetahs now are turtles and
The snails are nailed to the road.

I’m stuck behind the steering wheel
And traffic’s like a clock –
It moves by sound: tick tick tick tick
So slow to go just a block.

I’m sure there’re those who fume and curse
To burn gas sitting still,
And long for home, an easy chair,
And view, like mine, on a hill.

But there’s a way to rise above
This glacier moving slow,
And some are very good at it –
It’s what we all need to know.

It is a way to win the wait
In each and ev’ry que –
Just find a something that you love –
A ship to sail you on through.

Just study people; say a prayer
Play games with all the signs.
There are a million things – and me?
I sailed – I wrote all these lines.

Keep Looking!

Don’t ever
Wear your wedding band
While flying!

After A Day At The Quarry

Called rush hour?
Five o’clock traffic
Is not rushed.

Learn To Let Go

The time comes
One can’t go farther:
Lighten load.

* The haiku I write are lines of 3-5-3 syllables instead of 5-7-5.

Glass, Not Soap

See the world.
Float, fly without wings.
Ride bubbles.

Bubble to Bubble

Rush hour.
Five o’clock traffic
On skyway.
