June’s Haikus

6/1/2012
Will you marry me?
I meant to say, but stumbled
A smile and a kiss

6/2/2012
It’s luck you may say
I’ve learned that it rarely is
You must row to shore

6/3/2012
Everything changes
But almost never at once
I breathe in and out

6/4/2012
Fashion comes and goes
You’re a classic everyday
It’s substance and style

6/5/2012
Even when challenged
Optimism begets good luck
Your calm assures me

6/6/2012
When I’m around you
I am your priority
How lucky am I?

6/7/2012
His voice in the dark
Never knew him but miss him
Too young to have died

6/8/2012
Such self importance
A bell ring reminding me
That we’re all babies

6/9/2012
Wir müßen weg hier
Ich habe es gesehen
Wer hat verloren?

6/10/2012
Ringing never stops
I wonder what silence is
There’s nothing but sound

6/11/2012
If clothes make the man
What do mine say about me?
I feel generic

6/12/2012
They’re precious moments
Your laugh is infectious
Fall for you again

6/13/2012
We all sing through life
Without knowing all the words
Having lyrics helps

6/14/2012
Would life be worth it
If your crystal ball did work
Never ending play

6/15/2012
Changes drive forward
Standing still’s not an option
It never has been

6/16/2012
Obstacles ahead
Likely of your own making
This is a constant

6/17/2012
You gave up your dreams
In exchange for our future
Father and hero

6/18/2012
Your wings fluttering
A language misunderstood
Patterns in mid air

6/19/2012
In the final act
Will a whimper be enough
Or a grand gesture

6/20/2012
Nothing is final
For nothing ever began
Waves and particles

6/21/2012
They can be angels
But we would never know it
We act like guardians

6/22/2012
A smile in the crowd
Gives way to an epic tale
Building narrative

6/23/2012
A far jet engine
Rumbles like a god’s weapon
And leaves a soft cloud

6/24/2012
An expectation
Words that you never utter
What do I do next?

6/25/2012
Fear creeps in again
Is this what you have wanted?
Too many questions

6/26/2012
A gift from the gods
A fine night at the movies
My love by my side

6/27/2012
Do we understand
The stories we tell ourselves
Just dime store playwrights

6/28/2012
Place to cry and laugh
My home and my hiding place
Your welcome embrace

6/29/2012
Cuando tu sueñas
La guitarra de tu voz
Habla de amor

6/30/2012
At first it welcomes
Summer heat warms the muscles
It traps you with time
