This Uproar

this uproar

refuses to be hemmed in

nothing is even

in its wake

fallen norms

Thursday Doors

Yep! I’m feeling the wood this week. Looks like they’re all being well looked after.

Good morning all!!😊 I am starting to ease out of lock down. And the spirit of snapping pictures of people’s door while hoping they’re not watching is back!!

That last one I have dreams for..I need new fencing in my back yard. How cool would that be!! I think this person made this himself. I have yet to see a person as I go by on my walks though. I want to pepper him/her with questions. Very creative!

A good weekend to all!!

Birthday – Haibun

I was never really a particularly chatty person. I always had my nose in a book, and I could never abide foolishness much. I was more interested in capturing catapillars and watching them change. Looking back, It felt like even as a child I was an old soul.

This, coupled with parents who were always at each others throat didn’t leave much time for celebrations. Especially not of birthdays. I don’t remember ever having a birthday party when I was young. That was never a big thing at our house. There were more pressing needs.

I do remember it being a day of protest, or acting up on my part. Thinking on this day I was somehow immune. The problem was my mom didn’t much abide foolishness either. So usually with my acting up, I got the order to “go pick a switch”. Birthday or no birthday.

new butterfly soars
on the wings of summer wind –
the nature of change
