Haiku for you

I’m nearing my one-year anniversary as a fledgling blogger. Hooray! To celebrate, I’ll write a haiku for any friend who email-subscribes to my posts before October 12. (As yet, I don’t post exceedingly often, so cast aside any fears of an inbox deluge.)

Lest you have high hopes about your turn as my muse, you must know Iโ€™m not much of a poet. That said, I can darn well promise you a haiku from the heart. So, letโ€™s get this poetry party started with a 5-7-5 tribute to Elaine, my first-ever subscriber (and wondrously magnanimous long-time friend):

You enlighten me.

Wow! Like the first ocean swim

Centering. Graceful.
