Haiku for every day of May 2021

 Saturday, May 1

Rain, rain, endless rain

But morning green grass, playground

Wait and it will change


Sunday, May 2 (Fifth Sunday of Easter)

Grace Holy Land trip

Wistful, we so want to go

Knees and hips say no


Monday, May 3

The Cubs keep winning

Even the Dodgers don’t stop them

I like this a lot!


Tuesday, May 4

Sit still, take some time

Read, write, listen, pray today

And sleep eight hours


Wednesday, May 5

Let’s go fly a kite

Join new friends and sail it high

Look out! Don’t let go


Thursday, May 6

Cool of the evening

Sit outside and breathe in deep

Sweet night in Texas


Friday, May 7

At last the taxes.

The numbers come together

In a rush today


Saturday, May 8

Shop before I leave

Miles’ nanny to the park

Pizza together


Sunday, May 9 (Sixth Sunday of Easter, leaving tomorrow for Illinois)

Walk across the street

Can’t believe that miracle

Sing and pray all day


Monday, May 10

Miles looks up at me

“Can I go to Illinois?”

I want to say YES!

Huge margarita

Two hours of stories with Marc

Help each other sift

Hummingbird spins free

Our back yard’s a paradise

Cool air, sun, bird’s songs

Come to Illinois

Open up, touch, love people

It’s worth ev’ry mile


Friday, May 14

hail the Mighty Quinn

the best crab server in town

big tip ev’ry time


Saturday, May 15

Spread more green grass seed

Before seven days of rain

Wait six weeks, then look


Sunday, May 16 (Seventh Sunday of Easter, driving back to Austin)

May run into rain

Leaving the blue skies behind

Sabbath breezes blow


Monday, May 17

Such big hugs greet me

After blinding highway rains

Welcome home, grandpa!


Tuesday, May 18

Afternoon rain storm

Water beats against window

Close my eyes and rest


Wednesday, May 19

We could go fishing

(Forgiving rubber minnows

Grassy practice casts)


Thursday, May 20

Let today unroll

Like the scroll in synagogue

See what happens next

She was kind of sick all week

Then felt good today


Saturday, May 22

Marg, but I was sick all day

Huh, you never know!

Love these quiet Sunday times

Stories, and then sleep

Kids and water, what a joy

A little screaming 

Feel much better today, so

Glad for holiday
