I Eat Pizza (the dreaded IEP)

Haiku Friday
IEP Season
Fighting for what's right
In education.

Asperger's Syndrome
Doesn't doesn't make
Anything come easily.

Blindness means Braille books
And talking calculators
But Asperger's - What?

Here we go again
On the roller coaster ride
Of an IEP.

Haiku Friday

Loving husband and son
Not wanting to leave me out
Shared their germs; a-choo!

Recipe for an Historic Inauguration

Take one republic, preheated by
Poverty and
Health care crises.
Blend worries, industry failures, job losses
Top with slashed budgets and crashing morale.
Mix dedicated candidates with
Nurture from deep grass roots
Seek hope, change, and motivation.
Beat at high speeds until competition peaks.
Organize. Volunteer. Vote.

Set aside to cool.
Season with Knowledge
Plans and ideas
Fold in global perspective,
Authentic world view.
Ship by train to nation’s capital.
Set atop quality cabinet.

Serve with courage and inspiration.

Haiku Friday: weather

Haiku Friday

Temperatures rising
Might actually reach zero
Deceptive sunshine.
Makes the world shine so brightly
Yet warms not a thing.
Grateful to be home
Not worried about car's ills
Just keeping heat on.
Abundance isn't
Always in the pantry stocks
Sometimes it's blankets.

Word Acrostic: Happy New Year

Happy is a relative term. Old or
New, calendars still read one month at a time, all
Year long.
