Almost cried four times today –
Happiness – sadness –
Frustration and pain

Notes to this poem…
But I didn’t, is the key. What a strange day, though!
Wasn’t that close to crying over frustration.
Happiness was for someone I have known for a long time and been thankful for their presence, retiring. And great memories my family and I had with her over the years.
Sadness was that so many people will miss her presence and contribution in the community.
Pain wasn’t much, but from injury I played through in tennis, then blood drawn from a nasty dive for the ball because I wasn’t as mobile with my new injury to get to it as I would have done without the injury.
The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
