Twice-Told Sunset Lesson Told Twice: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Haiku

March 26, 2019

Today my daughter texted me at about 4 p.m. to ask: “What does Grandpa always say about sunsets?”
(Answer: If you’re too busy to watch a sunset, you’re too busy!)
Ironically, later in the evening, I was outside working on finishing installing/repairing our new (to us) chicken coop. Suddenly, shortly after 8 p.m., I stood up and looked westward … and realized I’d missed most of the sunset. Weird that my daughter and I had JUST DISCUSSED that point … and I’d missed the lesson!
So I wrote this haiku:

Dont get too busy/
and forget to turn around
and watch the sunset.
I was too busy and almost missed the sunset

Enlightenment Sunset: Romantic ImproVerse Free Verse Lament

January 1, 2017

Oh! Thou foolish,/
silly man,/
ripping open/
and exposing your heart,/
thinking that proclamations made,/
from distance,/
made late,/
will draw her in/
and capture her,/
and change her mind,/
when you really still hold/
the power/
and need to make/
the choices that are best,/
for you, /
not through loneliness,/
not through competition,/
but because you can/
see your path/
clearly. /

Suck it up/
buttercup.
