    • You guys are haiku demons. Are we allowed to count haikus written for us? I have some beauties in my journal.

      • I am trying to stay calm about it, but it is trickier when I drove right by that apartment complex last week! Really brings it close to home, you know?

        • Oh my... super scary! Please instruct hubby and or children (or dogs) to notify us if by some terrible chance you fall ill, ok?

            • Haiku

              Transmission of guilt
              Life needs an intimate pause
              Duplicitous sweat

              • How can sweat be duplicitous? I am curious.
                Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

                • Well, this haiku is about Ebola. I was thinking about how the bodily systems that are vital for our life to continue, in particular, sweat cooling us off, are the methods by which others are endangered. So, here we think the sweat is just cooling us, but the virus has made it into a deceptive fluid, hijacking it for its own purposes. I also like the connotation of 'duo' within the word, suggesting there are both two entities involved, the innocent sweat, and the virus, AND the two people, 'sweater' and recipient.

                  So glad you are stopping by my journal, Honeybuns. It is nice to see you.

                  • Sabine, I am fascinated by your explanation of the haiku and impressed with what you were able to do in so few syllables in the haiku itself!

                      • Haiku

                        False capacity:
                        the cuckoo's ploy. Be empty
                        The vessel has worth

                          The tree is cut but
                          Routine negates needed hope

                            I cannot stockpile
                            the daily walk for water
                            Move and drink or die

                            • As you may have guessed from today's haiku, I have re-instituted my daily walks to Aldi.

                              I trimmed all the dried/dead foliage from the tomato plants this morning, and they look wonderful. New tomatoes are budding out all over. We also have DOZENS of peppers in progress.

                              For today's Down Day lunch I had a spinach salad, and I was reminded of Canio's comment: One does not simply do ONE slice of bacon.

                              So, I had one and a half slices.

                              • That is willpower! I usually eat at least 2 slices while I am "testing" to see if it is done, which I know is a visual test, but one can never be too sure.

                                I miss Canio
