Senryu : paths

finding unworn paths
road is rocky, filled with weeds
shrugs. learning to fly

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

sorry, I’ll be back to do pics and stuff but working on something this week so a tad bit busy. Yet, I didn’t write a poem yesterday because I didn’t want do do one without a pic and it made my mind all itchy. So this week, the poems will just have to stand on their own …. panics!

laughing.

love you guys and I will keep trying to view your posts this week, just I’ll probably be a little slow.

Senryu : breakfast

3+

spinach omelette
hashbrowns crunching, black coffee
sluggish mind perks up

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Coffee is my magical talisman.  Trust me, without it, the sun does not rise. You say it does?  I don’t think so!  Closes my eyes and goes back to bed.  Wake me up when the coffee’s done.

Senryu : I’d rather be on Mars

2+
A model of the Mars Exploration Rover at the Pima Air & Space Museum.

Wish I were on Mars
a lost civilization
grand discovery

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

I love science-fiction, more than partially because I’ve always wanted to be a space explorer and visit new planets and alien civilizations. Unfortunately I’ve been near-sighted since I was 6 so that dream died an early death.  And as they say, those who can’t, write!  It’s probably why my stories are fantasy or sci-fi.

Senryu : parachute bridal gown

3+

World War Two bride’s dress
parachute silk — blushing gal
survivor’s love gift

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Thinking about time.  This dress, because it was made of parachute silk came from a specific time in history.  During WWII, silk was a rare commodity because much of it was used for parachutes.

A GI presenting his fiancee with his parachute was not just giving her silk so that she could create a bridal gown.  The parachute may have saved his life so that he could come back to marry, a precious memento of his surviving when so many did not.

I saw this today at the Pima Air & Space museum.
