Ode to Sue’s Haiku
A blanketed veil of moisture obscures the Orb of Night At a distance morn’s bleached hues detectable at a distant perspective Scorching star lifts up sans cognizance A regenerated diurnal course ensues.
You may not know me I am only words on a screen only photos only comments But we are friends We have connected And I care I think about you I pray for you for no other reason than I hope for your health and happiness because you deserve no less and I care.
As the storm clouds began to roll over the low range mountains, we could hear the silence and the smell of moss and fresh cut grass filled our nostrils and our minds, reminding us that this green comes when the clouds roll in.
Clouds roll on the land Covering the ground with life Fear was never here.
Like a diamond on a new brides hand glistening under the light of the sun shining bright under the glow of the moon lighting up life around me reminding me that beauty comes naturally when we aren’t ever looking.
Coming around the corner of the sloping hill I could see how far the path went. I was hoping to get to the end; however, I wasn’t sure how I would get back to where I started. This was the easier way to go, starting at the top vista of the mountain, and heading down. I didn’t have the physical stamina to start at the bottom and walk up the path. Being here by myself, although peaceful, was worrisome. What if I didn’t make it down to the bottom? What if I got to the bottom and everyone was gone for the day? What if I got to the end of the path and I was told I had to go back the way I came? I think I’d try to call for an Uber. I wonder if Uber drivers come out this far. It was worth a shot, otherwise I might have to hitchhike my way back. I left my car about 15 minutes higher up the mountain. Maybe I should just turn around now and go back while I still had energy and a little bit of water. Nah, going down was much more relaxing and rewarding, especially for my sore bones.
They told me this would be an okay spot, but now I’m not so sure. I mean it is a long walk to the actual dancing area. What if the day was hazy like it is now? How would my pictures come out? There are so many questions about this, and I want to get everything right for my big day.
Bethany told me that the hazy weather was better for pictures. But I wanted sun on my day!
Marcy told me people will walk the extra few feet to be able to celebrate my wedding with me in such a beautiful space. I didn’t want people too tired from walking to not want to dance!
David told me to book whatever place I liked best.
Suddenly, I was realizing this wasn’t going to be as easy as I thought. There was a lot of thought that had to go into the planning, and I wasn’t sure I could go it alone. Time to call Darcy. She’s always given me the best advice!
