A Bite-Sized Slice: Haiku

11454297503_e27946e4ff_h

I had such good intentions for writing a slice today. I started writing a post last night that had promise. I was sure I’d have time to work on it during lunch today. No such luck. Now I’m heading out to see George Takei’s Broadway show, ALLEGIANCE, at our local movie theater. I have been trying to keep up with Mary Lee Hahn‘s #haikuforhealing this month, so here are a few of my favorites from the past week.

blue jays perch in trees
ready to launch an attack
on sunflower seeds

bite-sized chocolate orbs
hide a surprise inside:
memories of you

loops of spun softness
slip off quicksilver needles
cozy hat blossoms
