Release

For TJ’s challenge this week, I have reblogged a photo which I feel depicts chaos and order working hand and hand…


an ordered release
rains celebration chaos
upon bride and groom

Prompt: TJ’s Household Haiku, 13 August 2017 – chaos and order

This photo is a contradiction of itself. Portraying both order and chaos – the order of everyone releasing their confetti at the same time while conversely, creating chaos with this same release.

I love this photo which was taken at a friend’s wedding in 2012.

Prompt: Weekly Photo Challenge, Task: Share an image that sends chaos packing (neatly).

Looking At Leaves

A trio of Haiku for this week’s challenge from TJ. Enjoy!



—————————-

The last leaves crumble.
Days grow longer; warmth returns.
It’s looking like Spring.

—————————-

—————————-

Looking at the world
from a leafy bird’s eye view.
I may catch them yet!

—————————-



—————————-

This year I’m looking
to turn over a new leaf
…it’s long overdue.

My Fill


in depth of darkness

I emerge…sucking…gorging

’til I’ve had my fill

Author’s note: This response was inspired (unfotunately) by my recent misadventures resulting in being bitten by bed bugs during my last night of holidays.

The Lot

Image credit TJ Paris

my love loves flowers.
nothing brings her so much joy
as their sweet perfume.


a lippy tulip,
roses of red, pink, yellow,
purple hued violets,


sunny gerberas,
delicate gypsophila,
perfect proteas,


cheeky daffodils,
full rainbows of carnations,
sassy snapdragons,


queenly hydrangas,
a daisy just makes her day.
to market I went


to buy her bouquet.
I just couldn’t decide so
I bought the whole lot!

Prompt: TJ’s Household Haiku, Words: perfume, joy

TJ’s Household Haiku #only #full

Two Haikus for this week’s challenge, inspired by my fur babies, Bella and Archie…

BELLA

eyes only for me

my loyal friend, if always

her belly kept full.



ARCHIE

it’s only a toy 

but in his sparkling brown eyes 

always the full prize
