Three Inspired By One..


Even in its death

A tree still serves a purpose

As a giant perch.

Birds on a tree branch

In the middle of a swamp

What is this, a song?


The calm, blue waters

Ripple the white clouds above

In its reflection.

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.

    I saw this photo on a friends Facebook and snagged it, (gave her credit for it at the bottom). That was about a week ago. I toyed with several haiku to try to come up with one I liked and that did the photo justice. I’m still not sure I am happy with any of them. So, not being able to come up with one good one, I came up with three ok ones. Well, I hope their ok… and that’s the story behind this post.
