Haiku Banter...

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Every week I send a weigh-in to my other favorite site. Usually the response is a line of encouragement or congratulation. Today's acknowledgment made me laugh:


2 pounds lost this week
Slender form brings welcome health
Makes hikes easier

Haiku week. LOL.


...Then it made me think of yesterday's running experience from Jason's frame of mind. It felt great. I hope he's chuckling at my reply:

I run in snow.
Blue heron quickly rises
as both are startled.

    I am lucky. Our property is surrounded by state forest and protected wetlands. The herons are frequent visitors to the stream that crosses it.

    Your comments and posts show up in my feed. I will see if I am doing anything to prevent you from seeing mine.

    Vinny, I just realized you blogs do not come on my Friend Feed at all and wanted to let you know.
    Too bad, I missed many of your blog entries...
    We are mutual friends, so I guess I should see them on my Friend Feed, like those of my other friends.
    Anyway, I'll check on your blog more often!

    I love both haikus.
    Jason's because it is lovely, smart and encouraging,
    and yours because it reflects the beauty of the place where you ran.

    You are a lucky man!
