Talking to the Animals

Walk with the animals, talk with the animals… I walked out of my client’s house today and saw two of my very favorite regularly seen animals across the street. I know. That sounds odd to say “favorite regularly seen animals.” The truth is, I DO regularly see many animals though. Here at my house, lastContinue reading “Talking to the Animals”

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere, over the rainbow, on the other side of the wall, days are bright and sunny, no matter winter, spring, summer or fall. If my clothes could talk at the end of the day,  they’d tell of the rainbows I saw today. Some rainbows I noticed, Others I passed right by, because I was tooContinue reading “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

Hot Air

Sun shines down so hot, Cotton field dirt burns bare feet, The hot air shimmers. Summer days of old, Cousins playing on the farm, Hot dirt, hot air…joy!

Where the sun shines 330 days a year, when the clouds come and darken our world, we freak out a bit and depression and edginess spreads over the town like the plague. Nonetheless, after a soggy, coolContinue reading “Shuu rin – Autumn Rain (A Haibun for dVerse)”

Earth Day/NaPoWriMo Day 22

On Sunday this week, this yard was covered in snow, and today, it’s covered in gold. The seasons, they fly by, as we grow old, and yet there are still days ahead with surprises untold. When I was a child, I recall streets filled with trash, and rivers with sludge, the skies were often theContinue reading “Earth Day/NaPoWriMo Day 22”

Soft and Heavy/NaPoWriMo Day 19

Soft as downy feathers, the world covered in snow, like a winter wonderland, though it be spring. The snow was heavy, and the weight of a breeze, a moment of sunshine, and the snow started falling, off of the trees. Soft as downy feathers, and as pure as white snow, I rocked my sweet babies,Continue reading “Soft and Heavy/NaPoWriMo Day 19”
