bluegrass and love

listen, just listen.

listen to your world. listen to a simple, plucked guitar.

listen to the quiet, find the filler in your day - things you block out or ignore

discover the beauty you overlook, the day-to-day blocks it out

look at the person you love, show him feeling. show him, soak in his smile

don't waste your passion in the useless places

listen, when your heart pulls out towards music and light

let the world be simpler than you know

let it free

Becoming a Grown-Up

grown -up Haikus

I eat healthy foods
Clean my home and limit booze
Prepare, teach Haikus

What if I sleep more
Delay the work, skirt the chores
Disappoint them all

Push for love, wield it
Clear my mind with treadmill run
Smile and mean it. Glow.

Show the care I preach
Give full effort, don't allow
The Lazy to cheat

Work till the pain reigns
Feel the burning, soak it in
I'll know - to begin
