2023 AWAKENINGS

so if my calculations are correct, i have lived nearly 15,695 days. not including, let’s say the first 5 years of non-learning aka non-consciousness, 13,870. not discounting crawling, drooling and other life (sense) experiences, all these activities are important for life and or daily living. rambling at an end.

for today, yesterday, tomorrow, a few conscious sightings Haiku.

  1. full moon–
    behind me a baby
    crawls
  2. moon phases the naked child crawls
  3. the far side
    of the moon…
    compressed diapers
  4. sickle moon–
    don’t bump your head
    on cloth diapers
  5. sickle moon–
    don’t go floating away
    cloth diaper
  6. day moon curled baby sleeps in a place
  7. sickle moon–
    sleeping side by side
    drowsy babies
  8. slight curve
    of the day moon
    sleepy baby
  9. sleeping baby
    tucked into folds…
    sickle moon
  10. full moon–
    hungry baby goes quickly
    to mum’s breast

winter drizzle–
shoppers go out to buy
anything

heavy drizzle–
to purchase batteries
with a short life

winter fog–
water in iron kettle
spouting

winter fog–
where the iron kettle
puffs smoke

howling winds
little squeaking sounds
of Christmas children


PUEBLO MICHIGAN IV

rays of sunshine —
blackbirds steal fries
from the dumpster

sunshine
blackbirds huddle
around trashed fries

summer sunset…
fresh fries and mustard
on a plate

mustard
dripping from a bottle
setting sun

honey…
loose rays
of liquid sunshine

honey jar
at its bottom
summer sunset

sunlight…
streaks of mustard
on a decorative plate


* Sunshine found not only in Nature, but so too created by Man, can be sighted the hours before predawn and hours after midnight.
*Red-winged Blackbirds found commonly in Michigan.

PUEBLO MICHIGAN part ii A

snow shower —
a plate of fries
drenched in salt

snow shower —
i am drowned in it
spilt salt

snowflakes —
at finger tips
salted fries

noticing
the weight of snowflakes
poured salt

such an accumulation
of sunshine…
squeezed mustard

golden sunset
drips down…
squeezed mustard

sun on the horizon…
a dollop of mustard
rises

evening sun
sitting for a while…
a dollop of mustard

dwindling sunshine
the mustard drips slowly
from the bottle

dappled sunlight
a long burst of mustard
from the bottle

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

HELL IS MOVING

My apologizes, my beloved followers, but this Madasahatter needs to take some time away from daily postings. I might or might not be moving and we all know that Moving has its own levels of hell and frustration that one must contend with. So until I am settled down once more, I shall say, Thank You for the daily follow and comments and encouragement. You might find me via Facebook under my name Dorna Hainds.

I am going to try and continue Haiku for as long as possible.

One can only pack and move and re-rearrange so much, right?

Until my return, I bid you farewell. And always, try and find some Happy in your days.

Sincerely,
Madasahatter572
