“mild, lingering spring” – Haiku upon having a puncture

mild, lingering spring,
a morning of dappled light;
like paradise found
In truth, it was two punctures on my bike, or one poorly mended. But the morning was so fine and fresh and the light on the flowers in front of the mansions on Washington so lovely, that I did not even mind the walk.

“the church rummage sale” – A Haiku and Advertisement

alchemy, old dreams to gold;
the church rummage sale

So, if you happen to be in St. Louis this Friday night and Saturday, my church, Grace and Peace Fellowship, is hosting a rummage sale to raise funds for a winter shelter which provides a warm and welcoming place for some women during the cold months. It is certainly a worthy cause, and I believe that often there are some pretty fantastic items to be found!
