Pick Your Battles

Fallen Knight in Battle Armor

“Don’t sweat the small things”

When life tries to weary you

Keep up and keep on.

Senryu

If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan? Jeremiah 12:5

Plum Talk

Plum tree full of ripe purple plums

I’ve been Plum tired,

And at times Plum tuckered,

But Plum crazy I’m not

Senryu

A bit of humor in my poem today. 😊

Seeing this plum tree while on my walk a few days ago caused me to remember some old phrases my dad used to say when I was a kid.

Lunch

Tomato and Loaf of Bread

Homemade bread

A fresh tomato sandwich

A link to the past

Senryu

When I was a kid in the 50’s my school lunch, in a brown paper sack, consisted of a tomato sandwich made from mom’s homemade bread and a garden fresh tomato. I still love that combo.
