A Haiku - One Thing At A Time

Checking off the list items....

"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this.... ." (James 1:27)

Even the longest journey requires a first step. Why not make all the steps in the same direction?


Prioritize them.

Lots to do; no time to do.

Not all can be done.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Can't quite decide which.

Some more fun than other ones,

Lighter chores for sure.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A better plan, yes!

S. O. S. the longer ones.

They need the max-time.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Save fun and short now.

And fit them in when tired.

Fun and short well done

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The list was done first.

The chores arranged in order.

Crossed three today! Whew!

Thanks for commenting Mr. Atanacio and Ms. Writer. I'm afraid that. if I write too many Haiku, I will forget how to write my other poems!

Great incentive to get up and get organized. The longer I spend pleasurable moments writing at the comp the less I want to get up and go. Thanks for reminding me of that.

Gypsy, that is my problem exactly and the inspiration for this Hub. It has always been easier to do the fun things and the short tasks first, while the critical, longer tasks can too easily be procrastinated. Hence the inspiraton for all of us to write about procrastinating, too.

I am liable to start three things at the same time, and then actually complete a fourth which was unrelated to the first three! My wife is the opposite, so some things actually get completed around here. Glad you liked this one.

Deborah Brooks: My Haiku poems said to thank you for your love. Just as you did, I didn't discriminate, I told them all that you love them. ;o)

Life's been full of busy thoughts, fleeting dreams, good and bad days. But only a person has only two hands to work, two feet to walk, to be able to do many things. Simply, you're telling about things that are important and not-so important, happy and not-so happy. What makes life busy may sometimes not be as important as others. What makes us happy may not also be as great as our treasures. Life must be both for celebrations, and for important celebrations.
