My home of  ten years.
There is a housing crisis.
Will I be homeless?

Forty eight thousand
Which is pennies for some folks
But  a lot for me.

I rose this morning
like the sun did, but my rays
weren't reaching me yet.

Praying and vocal
meditation too, then I
became filled with words.

I started my day
filled like a tub with bubbles
of pure joyfulness.

I felt stuck and couldn't find the words via my hand or within, to pour out. I don't like feeling like that because my little poems bring me joy.  It's my second passion next to dancing salsa.  So I did a vocal meditation chant for about 20 minutes wholeheartedly and viola! It worked! It cleared me or cleared the pathways or washed away the gunk in me that was trapping my inner voice/wisdom.

I just added the last senryu because I didn't finish it and I think distraction-itis took over but was happy with my new poem.

Like the four seasons
The sunshine always returns
The cycle of life.

Haiku written on Wednesday June 27 at 9:14AM

This 17 syllable Japaneses style format poem is one I wrote to a friend but didn't send it to him. It was raining for 3consecutive days.  In my own thoughts I was thinking of how we have struggles and obstacles but somehow, someway they are resolved.  My biggest challenge is resolving my house issue.

A Senryu

Living life today?
The past, the now, the present
Which one is my nemesis?

 by Mari Camacho on Monday, February 27, 2012 at 1:51am:

Is my underemployment my nemesis? Is not finish paying the principle of the loan of my house my nemesis?  Or is my financial karma  my true nemesis.

The Empty House

This is the poem I read at The Russell.  Where open-mic is held every Monday.  I wanted to do something different for my birthday and share my feelings as well:

The Empty House

I am empty and need 
some tender loving care. 
 I have many scattered weeds 
and plenty of space to share.

Vines are creeping around me, 
taking over my foundation. 
Soon I will need debris removed
and maybe some restoration.

My structure is pretty much intact, 
 The furnace is over 30 years old. 
But having a few cracks 
shouldn’t prevent me from being sold.

 Some painting and trimming 
would improve my appearance. 
I have no pool for swimming 
or even a garden with a white fence.

But this shouldn’t keep a family 
from showing some interest. 
Since I have four beautiful trees 
that make up for the rest

I have been on the market 
for as long as I remember. 
No one has bought me yet
 But a family, I will have, come December.

Written on June 25, 2006 

I lived in this home since December 21, 2000. And because of layoff and the in between jobs I am at risk of losing it.  My dilemma is if I let it go it goes into foreclosure, if I sell it I go into an apartment that are more in cost in rent.  Go figure!

My Dilemma

I have been chanting for 3 years now. Amazing things have happened. I see more series of numerical sequences throughout the day. Just today I saw the 777 right to the left of me was a vehicle parked with the license plate 777 as I left Autozone. I associate this as spirit telling me something.  A message from the beyond. I was pissed off at the letter I received today from the serviced of my house loan. I was denied for a modification because my income  I listened to a YouTube video that state this is a "Part of mystery school".  I believe it is telling me that I am to move forward in my evolution sort of speak.  I have a lot to say. I am angry, happy, sad, frustrated.  You name all kinds of feelings. I feel them, let them go and go on with my mundane life. However, there are days the numbers Show up out of No where. I have even started a Number diary to associate my thinking patters or what is happening currently with my life to see if that has anything to do with it.  For now I will leave you with a philosophical Haiku! (My lil passion).

Employment websites
No life purpose presently
Where are you today?

I am between jobs and yes I just finished a temporary assignment.  Enjoyed alot about it.

My big question is how do I save my home from foreclosure?

Do you think my haikus on bumper sticker can sell. It would be a partial solution to save my lil modest home I have lived in for 11 years.  Is the American Dream real or just an illusion?
