One Week Down: my latest .@ImageCurve #haibun

couple laying on the grass in a park

It’s the end of the first full week, and I rest in the chaise. Mira lies next to me, her sunglasses giving her that Jackie Kennedy Onassis impression. Maple leaves in the canopy above us rustle in a late afternoon breeze. Grasshoppers continue singing. Oh, how blue the sky!

I savor the last flavor of caramel from the venti Frappuccino I drank on the way home. But even resting so, I sense the growth of the to-do list.

The unmade calls.

The untaken attendance.

The upcoming planning…

Scampering chipmunks …
a Jason Mraz single
this first Friday
