To those who brag about their generosity 

The louder you shout 

Boldly proclaimed

“Generosity”

The more clearly I see the

Deception within your heart 

The Pursuit of Excellence: a #Haiku

This rainy darkness

The sun has not yet risen

Pursue excellence


There’s so much to accomplish early in the day. Before others are awake and the manic vigor rages forth. I love this time of day, when potential feels unlimited. When I’m bounded solely by my ambition.

What’s your favorite time of day?

Tonight’s Haiku: An Evening Walk

Walking near the shore

Sunlight gracefully setting

My mind is swirling

It’s been a rough couple of days. A few moments of peace were very welcome. Walking and writing poetry connect me to the greater grace of the universe. And I’m grateful.

I’m grateful for you, too, dear readers. The likes and comments make me feel like I add value to your lives with my shaped words. So, thank you for reading, liking and commenting! It lightens the heavier loads in my life.
