August 22nd, 2012

When the door closes
on summer, a breeze blows in
signalling autumn.

August 21st, 2012

I was just thinking
I would like to share this blog
with teachers from work.

August 20th, 2012

Could you tell that I
was watching the Giants game
while finishing this?

August 19th, 2012

Bumgarner just blew
snot out his nose.  But he's pitched
one helluva game!

August 18th, 2012

Date night with blinis!
Silly to make plural that
which already is.

August 17th, 2012

The voice on the air
wondered how the team would cope
with losing their star.

August 16th, 2012

Melky suspended.
What a bummer to learn he
was breaking the rules.

August 15th, 2012

We left at eight for
the city, drove hours to
watch men play baseball.

August 14th, 2012

Clyde's had so many
playdates, it makes me proud he
has so many friends.

August 13th, 2012

in the morning.  That was how
we spent our summer.

August 12th, 2012

Almost caught up but
I can't help but feel like I've
been cheating.  Sorry.

August 11th, 2012

My first client was
a nice boy with nice parents
who needed some help.s

August 10th, 2012

She closed her door when
she needed to work, but first
she kissed us each once.

August 9th, 2012

A haiku a day
for a full year yes, but not
one written each day.

August 8th, 2012

It has become clear
that this exercise, while fun,
will fail by minutes.

August 7th, 2012

My attachment to
foods made from animals comes
from comfort, and taste.

August 6th, 2012

Sometimes I say yes
to the bag they offer me
for my beer.  Or no.

August 5th, 2012

My golf game suffers
not after one beer but three.
Or one puff of smoke.

August 4th, 2012

Two nothing Giants
against the first place Dodgers.
This, two weeks later.

August 3rd, 2012

I got to know Buddha
a lot better this summer. 
And that says a lot.

August 2nd, 2012

9:06 and I 
have eighteen more haikus to
write in ten minutes!

August 1st, 2012

I love the Giants,
that ragtag group of players
with funny nicknames.

July 31st, 2012

I got nervous when
I saw the calendar change.
Oh know, August's here!

Juy 30th, 2012

I snapped a photo
of the fox as it scampered
down the driveway.  Click!

July 29th, 2012

At this rate, the words
will be words written about
other words, that's all.

July 28th, 2012

What have I to lose
when only four people read
this relentless blog?

July 27th, 2012

Oh know, an email
from my new boss: Humrichouse
is her stately name.

July 26th, 2012

What they lack in poise
they deliver in rhythm.
That's what I'm hoping.

July 25th, 2012

We sat in bed and
I turned their attention to
one great woodpecker.

July 24th, 2012

The baseball I watched
was both plodding and poignant
and I loved it all.

July 23rd, 2012

The time I started
was at: eight fifty four and
zero seconds.  Go!

July 22nd, 2012

Thirty haikus in
thirty minutes.  You ready
for this awesomeness?

Finishing a book
I have been reading all year:
it is bittersweet.

July 20th, 2012

Will soccergolf be
the incredible event
that it always is?

July 19th, 2012

Wall to wall people
here less to hear than to see
the return of Will.
