Haiku Tuesday: Moon Viewing at an Old Temple


No pretty face is to be seen

Among the group viewing the moon.

Rainy days and purring cats ...

While waiting for the snow …

Sitting by the fire, with a good book, a cup of hot chocolate and a purring cat. What can be better than this? 

Oh, I know! More chocolate. I’d better get going!

Haiku Tuesday


In my dark winter lying ill

At last I ask

”How fares my neighbor”?

by Basho (1644 - 1694)

New Year, New Beginnings

Happy New 2016!

A new year seemed to be a fitting time to start again.  You know - new year, new beginnings and all that ...

So I’m back now, feeling better and wiser (hopefully). I’ve learned to accept my constraints such as limited time or sickness. I’ve decided to post the Tuesday Haiku and one more post during the week-end, and anything more than that would be just a bonus. Better to overachieve than feel pressure to publish every day.

I hope you had a pleasant holiday break, re-charged and are ready to take on 2016. Bring it on, 2016!
