TWO LOOKS AT HALF-IRISH (A Pair of Dream Haiku)
Yes, it's not St. Patrick's Day, but I'm half-Irish year round! :-) So, here are a pair of haiku I just wrote in the wee hours of this morning, based on a dream I had during the night. Irish was not specifically referenced in the dream, but was clearly contained within the imagery.

The last dream of the night ended with Sarah Jessica Parker reluctantly taking the lead in a musical. She was dancing and singing in a lengthy production number of a song called "Flying." LOL! Maybe I will get off the ground again, out of the past and history. So Mote It Be!
Resource: Finding the Easy by William Stimson, an essay that speaks very deeply to me right now.
