the shoe drops

Job goes on, for now
Relief - sadness for others
Ten percent laid off

So Glad I'm Gone

maria reminds me...

tornado warnings,
thunder storms, golf ball-size hail
don't miss Texas spring

Lulu's New Haiku Milieu

i've joined spring haiku 2009

Find me here and there
Some posts more haiku-ier
Others not so much

False Start

the calendar says spring

White flakes large and small
bewilder little Red Breast
Snow on Spring's first day

The Jay

waiting at the stoplight

Eye-catching blue flash
in the still-brown roadside grass
Springtime harbinger

Not my usual
In the car at 6:15
No hint of dawn sky

weekend wordsmith prompt: ice

Crystalline branches
snap and take down power lines
A winter hazard

Forty-nine years old

Rocking Nirvana

scenes from the cube farm

We sit back to back
Earbuds in place, volume cranked
No interactions

Eveyone's tuned out
There is no iPod in Team
Office is silent

While I Was Out

Sciatica! Sciatica!

My left calf clenches
when I stand and when I walk
Rage against the pain

Code in My Nothe

A cold and a cough
with multi-colored mucus
fever and ear ache

My Mind to Your Mind

Mentor retires
Learning as much as I can
before his last day
