My thoughts on how passion, skill and enthusiasm ultimately pay off. Or at least, I believe it.......

It only takes one
spark amidst the tinder to
make the fire burn.

(The word "fire" has two syllables in UK and Australian English at least; it's a tricky one.)

I visited Fenway Park - the U.S.A.'s oldest and most beloved ballpark - today:

The Game

Ah, the game...peanuts
and cracker jacks...allergies.
But they still smell good.

Yeah...but don't worry! I still enjoyed my hot dog, pizza, and frozen lemonade while I was there. ;) That reminds me...

Man, I need to start eating better...

It is an endless
cycle of self-pity and
unearned indulgence.

Or in my case:

Break out the cream
crackers, apple turnovers
and buttered crumpets.

gloriously good omelet.

Grasshopper pie is made with mint and marshmallows (which gives it the COLOR of grasshoppers), and a chocolate crust (the color of soil).

Some people call it
crème de menthe pie, but that's the
boring, proper name.

My first haiku.....I'm better at spoken word and stuff like that.

Where the birds
sing and fly
way across the sky
I want to be there
where worries evaporate
and days of despair
go away like air
I want to be there


I have the eyes of something and the mind of Albert Einstein and van gogh on acid

That's not even a
haiku; it's five-seven-five.

I'd been out all day today, and I was just as tired yesterday as I am today. So I'm back.

A series of haiku on a funeral I recently attended.

A belovèd priest
has recently died. Throngs came
to the funeral.

Black, white and purple,
were the colours of the day.
Silence abounded.

He was fondly loved
by the hundreds who knew him
and appreciated him.

The Mass was short and
sweet, with no long and drawn-out
eulogies and such.

He came in standing,
but Padre left church, carried,
feet first out the door.

And so will we, too,
at the appointed hour,
be snatched off by Death.

Collar, stole or rags --
all will join hands with Death as
he bids us all dance.

Always it will end
with six strong men lifting us
to our place of rest.

When my time is up,
have mercy on my soul, Lord,
I plead this of You!

I can't help but dread
fleeting moments pass me by
till I have none left.

My own body melts
as a snowflake hitting the
warm and tender earth.

Help me, on that day,
to trust in Your infinite
compassion and love.

For now, I pray that
the soul of this dear priest may rest
in the sleep of peace.

And, on the last day,
that he may be admitted
into heav'nly joy.

(Good grief, that's too many haiku for a day. Wonder if I should put this in my poetry thread as well...)
