Haiku: Confidence

Confidence is so
Elusive when you always
Fall short of your goals.

Join the fun!

Haiku: Postcard

I missed the deadline,
You can fail me for the week.
Nevertheless, here:

Pretty postcards show
What fun things I've been doing
Because you ar'n't here.

The last thing she sent:
A postcard from Hawaii.
Then she disappeared.

"With all of my heart:"
The last words she wrote before
She left forever.

Join the fun!

My first cast hit the water with a lame plunk, hardly worthy of the effort I’d made. Dad just said, “Try again.” Eventually I caught something tiny, but judging by his excitement it may as well have been a whale.

I still see his smile when I fish now, with or without my own kids.

Haiku: Freestyle

A trifecta:

Going where I please
Is the finest way to hike.
To hell with the map!

Coloring outside the lines
Lets out the passion.

Freestyling full speed,
Throwing all the rules aside.

Join the fun!
