Senryu : inchoate

3+

Inchoate chaos
very many things to learn
beginnings are fun

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

I love that word: inchoate; that lovely scrambly feeling when you’re just beginning.  Where will the road lead? Look! A faroff goal with no dots connecting here and there yet.  Oh, no that’s not it.  Maybe it’s over there. Who wants the journey planned out before they start? I love unexpected discoveries.  Still Plan B should be packed; in case things go wrong.  Sometimes, you end up on Plan Z.  That’s ok too.

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 : 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.

Senryu : captivating jelly jars

4+

it’s the jelly jars
I have no chance to be slim
captivating sweets

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

In Tucson, Chocolate Iguana has been around for 27 years with chocolate, candies and espresso.  Recently someone has bought their building to put in a coffee shop they’ve invested in and Chocolate Iguana finds themselves suddenly without a home.  They will be moving out on March 31, 2018.

Their chocolate truffles are to die for!  If you haven’t been, go now.  Who knows if or how long before they can find a place and reopen.
