A Haiku - Timing

In life, as in sport, timing is everything.

Time delayed is time lost.

For everything there is a time and a season.

What is it time for?

Nature knows. Why can't I tell?

Life is filled with waste.

I dislike schedules, but when I schedule my time and projects, I love the results.

The clock ticks.  The heart pumps. Time is fleeting.  Life is short.  What ought I to be doing right now?  Why aren't I doing it?

  • A Haiku - Sounds

    Sight, smell, taste, touch, are all important gifts we share; but sounds take life everywhere. Hearing those sounds makes up so much of life, a precious gift for sure. Guard it well, you can't imagine being without it.

  • A Haiku - Leadership

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.
