The icy water
In my boot reminds me that
Spring is on its way.
(And also that I need new rubber boots)

Notes: This morning I had the pleasure of meeting up with a dear friend who posed the question to me: What are some moments of hopefulness for you? It got me looking at things in a new light today and noticing that most of the time the moments of hopefulness in my life creep quietly into small places and spaces, like the crack in my rubber boot. The icy water confirms that I am alive. What are your moments of hopefulness?

Soup’s On!

I pick up my spoon
And contemplate leaving you
As you slurp your soup.

Laundry Haikus #3-5

Breathing in deeply
I look at the laundry pile
That’s waiting for me.

Digging through the mound
I find a somewhat clean shirt
It will have to do.

Jumbled together
Are shirts, pants, and the odd sock
Where do I begin?

Notes: This is another response to WordPress’ Daily Prompts. It’s definitely not my best. I was in a rush, but also wanted to commit to writing something. Today’s prompt was: Those Dishes Won’t Do Themselves: What’s the household task you most dislike doing? I chose to write about laundry. Not because it is necessarily my least favourite household task, but mostly because with a family of five, it is a never ending task.

Waiting for the bus
A new year is beginning
Time to start again

Waiting for the bus
A new year is beginning
I am in first grade.

Waiting for the bus
A new year is beginning
My boy looks so big.

Waiting for the bus
A new year is beginning
What will this year bring?

Note: Here’s another post inspired by the Daily Prompt. I’m not sure whether this sequence of repetitive haikus works as a piece together or whether each one needs to stand alone. Any thoughts?
