The Old Man

oldman

The friendly old man

Never hurt a fragile soul

Happiness spreads all around

Easter Haiku

God will call upon

The saints who walk softly

On Easter Sunday

Unfocused

When I start to lose focus

Everything seems so bad

What I did yesterday seems like a fad

Those goals that I had

Suddenly are lost in the shuffle

I’m no good anymore

It’s all a kerfuffle

My words need to have meaning

They need to strike a chord with my heart

Be able to last forever, be like art

Push Your Luck

So it was another trip to FireKeeper’s Casino and Hotel in Battle Creek today. The enormous colorful sign on the side of the highway advertising it is hard to miss on the way there. More than 66,000 people pass that sign each day, which means most will get excited about the potential of winning a lot of money at the casino and will be going or think about going in the future.

When you walk through the front door of FireKeeper’s casino, you will immediately notice the large fiery orange pole going from floor to ceiling with a helical metal structure climbing around, to symbolize the flames of the firekeeper, referring the job a Native American would have in the tribe.

If there is one machine that I loved in this place and was doing really well for me and I wanted to find it again, it would be next to impossible to find it, because it’s a sea of machines with various bells and whistles and themes, most of which put the idea into your head that you could get rich quick just by playing.

Today was not my lucky day, though it was for my mom who won over a hundred dollars. Good for her on getting money that is basically free. I’m going to learn eventually that if I suddenly earn more than I came with I should just call it quits and walk away, but it’s the thought that I could win so much more and I could have a really lucky day at hand.

the dark, dreamy night

stars glistening upon a large blanket

crickets chirping their musical melody

once heard never again in the morning

raindrops running down a rusty pipe
