My Haiku
gazing toward the end
yet hope lives eternally
for our homecoming

Our Inspiration from Basho
Translated by Jane Reichhold

to hear the wild goose
is my reason to go
to the capital in autumn

This day marks the end of our journey with Basho.
Thanks to our host Kristjaan for continuing to host this meme.

The stretched out horizon can feel daunting or exciting depending on what mood I'm in. This looks like a stretch of beach where I grew up.

lucky you! I went here a few times through the years to stay with my cousin and her husband.

A beautiful photo. But I'm sorry for your loss.
Wonderful response Nonnie ... strong emotions caught in a beautiful haiku.

WORDPLAY #12: Haiku about Miriam

CHOKA: 7 lines, 5/7/5/7/5/7/7
baby- heaven sent   arrived early- Miriam  minuscule fingers- slender exquisitely made mouth, chin like father’s  in love when first I held her appeals for her wellbeing

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Moving Time

In the Midst of Packing January 3, 2017

I will be moving soon to a smaller home and close to my youngest son, Daddy of Miss Bright Eyes. So I’m taking a break- I have been purging for weeks now, but I’m not finished. Whew!  So I won’t be posting till after the move and settling into this sweet abode.

Happy 10th day of Christmas!
