Disconnected Connections

I spent the majority of yesterday (8 hours or so) on the highway driving. Today has been a day of physical rest while a friend of mine has done some much needed work on my poor over-driven van. My creativity today has come in small, disconnected bursts that are only connected by the thread of form. Here are some randomly themed haiku from today’s musings:

#1

People of Wal-Mart

aren’t dressed to be seen outside

their own bedroom walls.

#2

Bumper to bumper

five o’clock Friday traffic

gives me a headache.

#3

A mood disorder

is not hard to understand

if you keep guessing.

#4

Drive belt replacement

is an expensive repair

for over-used vans.

#5

Girl friends are a gift

that can only be opened

with a loving heart.

 #6

The familiar smell

of my childhood was captured

in vapor rub tissue.

#7

Fat tabby cat in

North Carolina red clay,

perfect camouflage.

#8

Clean, country living

made perfect by the lack of

strong cell phone signal.

#9

Marry who you want

but love that person with all

the love in your heart.

#10

Great meals are prepared

in someone else’s kitchen

and cleaned up there, too.

One thought on “Disconnected Connections

  1. I enjoyed reading the vignettes of your travels, especially because just yesterday we drove over 400 miles, and I was exhausted. But unpacking, laundry, and tomorrow real groceries all await. I hope you are now refreshed at home! Your poems are like mental photographs that savor the moment.
