Eating and Haiku - {Poetry Friday}




cascading water
over steady stones and moss
relaxation - bliss

@Mandy E. Robek 2016



I've been eyeing a local restaurant named, Haiku for quite some time and a few weeks ago I had dinner with my college daughter there.  Her best friend and roommate is working there so of course we had to go to support M!  Knowing M helped us out this evening because it wasn't too busy and her serving area had a table right next to this lovely outside center area.  M brought us post it notes and said everyone writes haikus and we hang them up.  I wish I had my notebook out and could share the process.  I really wanted to focus on the setting and nature, making several revisions and feeling disappointed when my syllables didn't quite work out.  If you are local, dinner was delicious!

Thank you to Chelanne at Books 4 Learning for hosting Poetry Friday this week!
