Haiku For Carpe Diem #242, Ambition

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompt is Ambition.

So many ambitions through a life and happily, so many of them achieved. As time propels me towards another stage in the journey where the two that became five become two again (most of the time at least) my focus is shifting towards re-starting the travels we never finished…

Travelling The World

travelling the world
does business from a laptop
living in the now

living in the now
offspring all happy & well
we’re taking a bow

we’re taking a bow
write haiku as I sea it
travelling the world

Ok, so I’m not looking to sail around the globe, just the warm calm parts of it…but it’s all part of the living the dream 🙂

Smiles, love and laughter

    I read this earlier today on my phone but can’t easily comment. I love that your children are grown and you have new dreams and ambitions that you are realizing. Beautiful.

      Thanks Grace, they’re not yet all grown up (youngest 12) but it’s a plan to work towards for the next stage of our journey when they have 🙂

    I love this and especially the wordplay in the third one. If you do travel I’d love it if you’d blog or write haiku about it so we can share in the journey.

    • jrbsays says:

      Thank you Cathy, it is a few years away yet, but I will be sure to blog about it 😉

      • Cathy Tenzo says:

        You have to plan. I really have had very little funds to travel but I am also planning some travel myself. I, too, will write about it. We are writers, this is what we do. 🙂

  8. I sea a new future coming your ways, see you when you come to Stockholm 🙂
