The exercise:

Write two haiku about: the weathervane.

Boxes went fairly smoothly today, which was a nice change. No mistakes were uncovered while putting them together, which meant no running out to the garden to harvest something five minutes before people were scheduled to start arriving.

This evening we went for a quick grocery shop and then some gelato (well, sorbetto) at the beach. And by quick I mean except for the parts where we waited for Max to get into his car seat.

Because he can do that now. All on his own.

It just takes a while... most of the time.

Mine:

Spinning, spinning, my
life is spent spinning, giving
others direction

*     *     *

The rooster points north
with confidence, though clearly
things are going south

Well done on the boxes! I can imagine how annoying it is to have to keep running to the garden because something's missing or there's not enough of it.
And well done Max on mastering the car seat! He'll be asking you to teach him how to drive before you know it :-P
I think I like your second haiku better today; both are good but that one just has that something special.

The weathervane
Every opinion
Is what her friends have just said...
She's a weathervane

Always heeling with
The prevailing mood and thought
Just as the wind blows.

[Linking them seemed appropriate today]
[Oh, and a gentle reminder that we have yet to visit Vancouver Irrealis this month, too!]

Greg - yeah, I've begun hiding the car keys from him already...

Linking your two works very nicely this week, I'm glad that you went that route :)
