Preparations

Today I’m trying something new: participating in the weekly Cosmic Photo Challenge. The theme is “’tis the season.”

I have a haiku to go with it:ย 

Joseph and Mary
Journey by silent snowmen 
Looking for some room 

Contentment

I am sharing another poem from the archives. ๐Ÿ™‚ During my archaeological dig through my notebooks today, I found this haiku and thought it was cute.


Sweet simple sparrow
Singing softly, staccato,
Staying satisfied

P.S. Many thanks to Brian Vos, whose prompt I linked to above, because after I shared this poem last week, he told me it would be interesting to see more of my older stuff. So, he’s the one who caused me to open Pandora’s Box. ๐Ÿ™‚

Voracious Reader

Inspired once again by the prompt from yesterday, I wrote this tanka about reading. I make time to read every day — it’s kind of like eating a meal to me, not optional like a dessert — but there’s still never enough time to read as much as I wish I could, or if there is enough time, then I use too much of it on other things, such as watching videos on Youtube.


My home library:
Full bookshelves are prepared for
Reading with gusto

If only there was enough
Peace, and quiet time waiting
