WORLD CUP WIN 

Yes, I did grump about the coaching, but I am very happy for the players. Although I do feel for the Japanese goalie. Bad location and time of day to lose a coin flip and get the sun in your eyes. Congratulations to the USWNT on their World Cup victory!

  

STORM RUSH HAIKUS

The First:

Embracing weather

Rumbled threats, grey sharp greens rise

Storm rush calls, shatters.

The Second:

Storm Rush fills, Darks bright

All waiting, breathless, dreaming

Storm Queen, Lightning cries

Coda:

Quieter gift falls

Hope surges cool, laughter drips.

Rain. Poet. Dancing

QUICK CHECK IN

This article has Interesting summary of Women’s World Cup Day 3 results, with an emphasis on the African teams perhaps being underrated.  Want to see Cameroon play.  USA vs. Australia was a bit frustrating, although it’s always very nice to see Megan Rapinoe and Hope Solo so on their game.  But Australia might have won with a lesser keeper in the net.  Frustrated that Ellis won’t just play Sydney Leroux and Christen Press together as a team of forwards.  Would like to see Australia safely out of the group stage as well as the US.  Still think the home USA uniforms lacks that “we can actually see they used our national colors” flair.

Ah well, coaching from the couch is never productive.  Nice to have so many games available on Fox Sports.  And when can I reserve my copy of FIFA 16 from EA Sports?

Twelfth Night has kicked off as well so rehearsals are warring with watching soccer games (and drawing).

In book news, I’m taking In The Bleak December out of the Kindle Select program as of 6/11 and spinning it off to other outlets so if you want to borrow it for free, these are the last couple days that will be possible.

Take care!  Who are you rooting for?

Apologies for neglect so I raided my mini iPad ; )

HAIKU (AND HI!)

Labyrinthart

Have been rambling around in the slightly warmer weather waiting for flowers to pop and becoming mildly obsessed with labyrinths and mazes.  And haikuing.

Why The Minotaur of Distraction Often Wins

Many paths roll out
Tantalizing colors sweep
Thoughts away from this

Nearly Spring

Lingering through pine
All sharp: Green Chill Sun Shadows
Orioles’ calls fly
