Gypsy Spirit

Riding rails for life
Box cars, hobo meals, loner
Gypsy spirit drifts


It has been a fun month, SiS and “peers” – if I may be so bold to assume, myself a peer as well! 😉

In celebratory salute for completing my first Haiku marathon, so near the opening act of
“On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea”:

For me:

Heel – toe steps forward
28 Nights pondering haiku
Freedom therapy

For you:
Timely steps forward
Pondering Haiku measures
Month of witty verse

Thank you – it has been a treat and an honor! ~becca~

    Hello Becca! Nice to be back in the Rally and see your name. Just mentioned you in an interview I did actually because your work on here has always amazed me and I tend to need more words for expression, you have the gift to use few words and say a lot!
