All Boxed Out

The big move in 100+ degree heat is finally over.  The walkthrough of the old place is done and we’ve been given a thumbs-up.  Boxes are piled around us and the new challenge of re-organizing is before us.  We’re into our new place and we cannot get over how wonderfully peaceful it is here; no loud car noises, no yapping dog across the road.  Only the roaring of the summer cicadas to lull us into a nice meditative stupor.

We’re also exhausted.

I spent most of the week being outside and carrying large cardboard boxes full of items that were not mine.  (Oh, don’t get me wrong, my wife will happily explain how several of those crates were mine as well!)  It’s a sneaky thing the heat will do to you.  I was fine for the first few days but as we wrapped up and the week came to a close I became absolutely exhausted.

Sitting with the dawn
exquisite touch of a breeze.
Cicadas and crows.

Today, we’re resting and we’re doing so with all the passion and zeal in which we performed the move.  Part of that has been catching up on email and Twitter.  I was really pleased to see my post “On The Simple Haiku” made it onto the The Weekly World Haiku News page from Paper.li on the 24th!

It made my peaceful morning all the more sweet.
