Daily Haiku 061409 and Sunday Scribblie

Combo bombo today. The word at Sunday Scribble is ABSURD. A quickie.

Turn off the TV
in all its absurdity
much better to read

I had a great reading binge this weekend, it was wonderful. Chugged down Stephen King’s Duma Key. It was a doosie!!

Sunday Scribblings – COVERT

This Sunday Scribblings word is COVERT. After considering a possible job opportunity yesterday, I felt it was disguised as something good, but at an impossibly high cost to me. I left the corporate world behind for good reason, damnit.

OPPORTUNITY KILLS

the “good thing” is a wrench
in the workings of a harmonious life
after panic comes the challenge
a dare to my shallow self

I can do this.

devoid of passion
playing a part
like wearing a heavy woollen coat
smothering every other

I should do this.

accepted for shallow reasons
another’s bragging rights
ego strokes of my own
promise of security

I can do this.

vivid memories of stress
consuming worry
false smiles and handshakes
with those deplorable

I should do this.

my transformation
my reemergence
my tender newfound spirit
now at perilous risk

Should I do this?

corporate prison sentence
disguised as opportunity
a test of my conviction
to my truest self

I cannot do this.

worrisome burden…
torment every moment…
anguish unending…

wringing upset hands…
bedeviled and beleagered…
agonizing wait…

envelope arrives!
graduation day is mine!
pomp and circumstance!

SUNDAY SCRIBBLING – DISCONNECTED

Can you hear me now?
My service interrupted!
Did I pay my bill?

Anybody there?
Silent disconnected phone!
I have Peace at last!
