Work Observations Part II…

What is time to the working servicing class? What is enjoyment of the mass consuming horde? I do hope you, dear reader(s) are enjoying these little delights as much as I have relish in creating them. 😉

full moon…
it is a lump
of cooked rice
upon a dinner plate

crooked moon…
a bag of rice
boils

moon viewing…
floating slowly
a bag of boiling rice

boiled eggs
being scooped
phases of the moon

phases of the moon
I add croutons
to the salad

snowflakes…
between baby’s fingers
cooked rice

April snow
cooked rice squeezed
in baby’s hands (7a)

April Surprises…

On April 20, 2022, of this year, obviously, I took a New Year’s walk with my little love, Lola. She is nearly 14 years old this October 2022. Anyway, before our daily walks, since there is no rain, I was allowed by Mother Nature to make the following observations of my Lola and other natural things, during and after our daily walks. I hope you, reader(s) enjoy the happiness and surprises that we encountered on that day. If I had my camera in hand, I would have taken a quick photo, but of course, the snake in its travels, moved swifter than I could. 😉

before our walk…

teacup chihuahua
the sunshine is ahead
of the sunrise

teacup chihuahua
her shiny coat
ahead of the sunshine

sunshine—
teacup chihuahua
a sunny spot moves
around the apartment

during our walk…

sunrise
a gardener snake
rises itself from the grass

sunrise—
as the gold snake rises
from the grass

the gardener snake rises
suddenly, swiftly
april sunrise

after our walk…

sunshine
my chihuahua rests
on the sofa

sunshine—
sleepy chihuahua
stays in bed sulking
for a short while

sleeping chihuahua…
where a soft light shines
peeking
from the blankets

A BELATED NEW 2022 TO ALL

beer bubbles
a bittersweet taste
from yesterday

wild chrysanthemums
being withered
today more than yesterday

starry night —
yesterday, today, tomorrow
wild chrysanthemums
expand
and contracts

starry night —
in last year’s faraway field
withering chrysanthemums increase
its brightness

wild plum blossoms
today more than yesterday
shine in the forest
in the color of the moon
