yearning haiku

A nice light “dusting” will do .😊

It’s been raining on and off, for days, here on Vancouver Island.

🎄 A White Christmas would be so nice!🎄

This photo and haiku is from years ago, when we lived in Interior BC. 

How has your weather been?

Are you expecting a White Christmas?

Gorgeous Weather and a Haiku

hunch brought to mind

We’ve been having some beautiful warm days, here on Vancouver Island, after a lot of rain.

On days like these, it makes me feel happy just to gaze up at the skies!

This morning, this haiku also came to mind.

I’m facing some time at the dentist this afternoon (minor repairs!) so I need all the cheering up I can find.😏

Hope you are enjoying a great day, wherever you are.

🌾Hugs and Happy Week.🐦

Autumn Light and Words….

autumn leaves tau ku

….and a ???

When I was participating at a lot of poetry prompt blogs, years ago, this poetry style (with two syllables for the  second line) was one of my favorites.

Now, I can’t remember the name of that particular poetry form.

Any ideas?

Whatever it is, I hope you enjoy this encore!

PS:  I found the answer, right after I wrote this post, 😉 it’s called, Tau-Ku, you can read more about this type of poetry HERE.

Wishing You a Wonderful Week!

The Autumn Leaves (haiku, movie and song) :-)

This is a reblog of an autumn post (from 2015) that I hope you enjoy.

A song and a movie that still comes to mind, this time of year. So haunting and beautiful.

I hope you enjoy my haiku and photo too.😊

The unpacking continues here. We have now given away over 120 boxes of clothing, household items,books… to charity, so slowly but surely, making progress.

And today, we are setting up my office complete with new laptop and printer, yipee!

🍁🌾 Happy Week and Happy Autumn!🍂🍁

I ♥ movies from the 40s and 50s!

We were watching a Joan Crawford movie last night: Humoresque (so sad but wonderful) and this haiku and archive post came to mind. 

The Autumn Leaves is a song that I often have running through my mind, especially this time of year. As I mention in this post, it was also a Nat King Cole tune, that my beloved Grandma cherished.

And the movie of the same name is also one that I have never forgotten.Quite a “racy” film for its time (1956) and definitely with some disturbing content.

But, if you are a fan of Joan Crawford and/or movies from the 40s/50s like I am, do check this one out.

It also features a young and oh, so handsome Cliff Robertson.  Also starring, Lorne Greene in a role that is far removed from his later, fatherly…

Motivational Monday: Keep Positivity on Your Side

A reblog from Genki Kitty’s blog, to share this thoughtful and inspiring post.

I hope it adds a smile to your day. 🙂

Keep positive to get things in life

There are times in our lives when we feel down and against the world.  Whether it be a gain in weight while on a diet, fitness goals unmet, problems with a relationship or even problems with our career, you will have times in your life when things aren’t perfect.  So what is a person to do when everything seems to be falling out of place and nothing seems to be helping out of the hole of despair?  Well, as a Christian I want to say follow up with more prayers and give thanksgiving for all the blessings we have in life.  Additionally I want to add to stay positive in the lack of light in your life right now.  Take a breath, walk away for a few moments (or longer if necessary) and look towards it in a different light.  Keep positive in the times of darkness and you will…
