Haiku: Slog


English: Long Slog up Beinn An Dothaidh.

Sometimes things will trudge,
and what to do but proceed?
Better slow than stopped.

Our home is taking shape, but at a slower pace than I want it to. A testament to the busy business of day-to-day life, it refuses to spring into a whole, leaving me feeling at the end of the weekend that I’ve gotten little done. And I have yet to catch up on the blogosphere. L’chaim!

  1. I love this haiku. It makes me think of these lines from Hopkin’s “The Windhover” — “Sheer plod makes plough down sillion shine.” http://www.bartleby.com/122/12.html

    I also love the photo. Nothing more beautiful to me than high mountains, snow and an open horizon. Sigh.

  2. Rob, I just wanted to tell you, speaking from the position of a writer, that this one is so true.

    Creative thoughts crammed
    into the bus of my brain
    Who will get out first?

    Look how you inspire me, Rob.

    1. I’m flattered, Cimmy! Conversely I read that just now and imagined my brain as a bus . . . the doors folded open and clowns started falling out all over the place; everything was squeaking noses and floppy feet!

      1. What a mental picture! My thought was that the bus inhabitants didn’t want to come out, that they were all waiting for someone else to go out first. I like your idea better. It’s so much more fun.

        1. That’s right, I kept thinking “trail of tears”, followed by “that’s not it, don’t say it!”

          I just Googled it. Is it the parkway where part of it is under construction near Tupelo MS?
