Skating Poem S023

Is there a word for
A good opportunity –
At a bad time?

Notes to this poem…

I got news of a potentially very good opportunity today. However, I’d probably have to turn my life upside down to accommodate it. Think of it being a bit like a term job offer elsewhere in the world in a field you don’t work in, but would be interested to try. That’s what this poem is about.

I’m tempted to try and think of that word, if it existed, or make one via a portmanteau, to maybe turn this haiku into a tanka. However, I ran out of time thinking about that opportunity, possibilities, sacrifices and such, skating on the Oval so this was where the poem was left.

The S-series poems were composed while I was out skating on the Halifax Emera Skating Oval, to squeeze in writing time in a life that is always getting busier.
