A wasp

a wasp
inhabits the feeder
I start to refill—
my days so full
with plans I must change

Simply Haiku, Autumn 2006

  2. Seldom are tasks as straightforward as one anticipates. I suspect, we don't build a lot of flexibility into our days.

  3. Yes, a wonderful metaphor, deceptively simple but full of truth.
