Haiku – Sage & Vine

Wisdomly advice

Enhanced by fruit on the vine

Only in hindsight

Haiku – Chaste & Blush

I enjoy days like today now that we have it all figured out.  No stress, no fuss, no muss.  No more waiting for special occasions to do something special.  Everyday is Christmas Eve <insert your own special occasion of choice> or it can be.

Sitting here in comfy PJs, flavored coffee that I should NOT be drinking at hand, I am taken to another place.  I hear pleasant sounds.  The dryer, the hum of the refrigerator,  hard boiled eggs being cracked.

I think of the challenge words: Chaste and blush.  Kya from “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens, is the epitome of those two words.  She is also free and untamed.  Like many of us, she has a dual nature which cannot be defined.

Wow I am preachy today.  You’d think I already nipped at the brandy but nope.  No Kahlua in my coffee either.  Anyways, today’s Haiku offering is a two-fer.  Thank you Ronovan for providing the space to release these words from my mind.

Heron flew above

Unblemished sandy beaches

Glowing scarlet flush


The pink on her cheeks

Eyes closed anticipating

The first kiss of love

XOXOXO – Wishing you well this season and into 2019.  May it be the BEST year yet 🙂

Haiku – Win & Lose

People want to win

Winning isn’t everything

We learn when we lose


Who gets to say what

It means to win or to lose

Decide for yourself


Can’t win for losing

Is what my dad sometimes said

After a tough day
