Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday

in the moment is
where I want to be right now
pay close attention

what is this moment?
it is dogs fighting loudly
then slurping water

it is a stinky
diaper on my sweet lucy
she's oblivious

it is cold, rainy
cloudy, windy, very gray
yet still beautiful

i am so grateful
for this day, it is perfect
perfectly alive

breathing deeply now
pay close attention today
all you have is now
