HAIKU MY HEART: My New Heartthrob

youngest greeted me,
“I have news!” Said I, “good, bad?” 
more of a surprise

Having no children by now, he figured there would be never be any. Wrong!  So off we went to the NICU of our local hospital for me to be introduced to his petite, preemie  daughter. Holding her, I felt my heart strings being plucked. Welcome, granddaughter!

Hoosier Quote:
“This industry (the movies) must have toward that sacred thing, the mind of a child, toward that clean virgin thing, that unmarked slate, the same responsibility, the same care about impressions made upon it that the best clergyman or the most inspired teacher of youth would have.”

CARPE DIEM #786: My Blue Moon

               Inspiration from Basho:            
harvest moon
even coming twice in a month
the moon of Seta
                Inspiration from Kristjaan:                         
wonderful event
another full moon in one month

                                                 My Haiku:                                                                         anticipating…
  a lunar phenomenon! 
  rejoice- a blue moon

Hoosier Quote:
“The moon is a different thing 
to each one of us. 
It looks like a vast,lonely, 
forbidding place, an expanse of nothing.”

WEEKEND REFLECTIONS #304: Car Reflections

two cars reflected,
each reflecting something else…
it’s so perplexing

Hoosier Quote:
“Frankly, I did not realize 
on that Fourth of July,
when I took the first ride 
in America’s first car, 
that a score of years later 
every street and highway in America 
would echo the sound of the horn 
and the report of the exhaust.”
