    Little curly dog

    Sleeps beside me on the couch

    Dream, my wee one, dream

    Chasing dream rabbits

    The curly warrior runs

    Fast and free: REM sleep! :)

    Thanks magic! The thought made me smile too.

    I have had dreaming

    dogs curled up at my side, on

    the hunt in their sleep. :)

    Glittering branches,

    coated with last night's ice, shine

    in winter-blue sky.

    Soon the page will turn

    to March. In like a lion

    and out like a lamb?

    Melting droplets hang.

    A million tiny rainbows.

    Sunlight refracting.

    A dozen robins

    hop in neighbor's sunny yard.

    Two perch in my tree.

    ~~~

    They came overnight

    from whence I do not know but

    glad to have them back!

    'Listening' with their

    feet for food in warming earth.

    Are the worms aware?

    Elderly mother

    Angry, confused, sweet, bossy

    Yep, she's still in there.

    Poodles, I hear you.

    Mom's 86, some days sharp

    some days not so much. ♥

    ~~~

    This thing is broken!

    No, mom, let me show you. Just...

    Her eyes glaze over.

    ~~~

    She just wants e-mail.

    iPad a steep learning curve.

    Icons abounding.

    Thanks, magic, here's one from this morning's thin slice of joy.

    Overnight surprise!

    Old Man Winter ain't done yet.

    Fat flakes dance aloft.

    badger...come to the southwest where temps are above normal. Come July when everything is brown here, I'll be wanting to head to green Wisconsin :)

    magic, I lived in CO for many years and love the West.

    Soft southwest colors.

    Azure sky, apricot clouds.

    Snowcapped mountains rise.

    Hopeful silhouette.

    Small red bird, white-clouded sky.

    He calls. She answers. ♥

    Sunny skies above

    Grass starting to emerge green

    Me, another season older.

    And the seasons turn

    Faster it seems as I age.

    Here's a beautiful live version from Miles of Aisles (which I own).

    People have been calling out songs they want to hear, and she makes a great comment about artists- musicians v painters (she paints). No one ever said to Van Gogh, paint a Starry Night again, man.

    thanks, magic. I'm no expert but understand 'good' haiku brings the reader to the writer's senses.

    They flutter and chirp.

    Two small brown birds preen and fluff.

    Courtship or raindrops?

    ***

    He's found them a home.

    Not a yoga pose!

    What did we plant there?

    Hopeful shoots poke through the mud.

    Maybe daffodils... ♥

    Badger, and Magic, lovely!

    ~~~~~

    Spring is in the air

    Lovely breeze spreading pollen

    Ah,ah,ah,ah-choo!

    ~~~~~~~~

    And, just because I like this oldie of mine, enjoy:

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    The Mother cloaks herself in green,

    This early springtime morn.

    And everywhere new life is seen,

    A world again reborn.


    The cycle of the seasons clicks

    Just one more turn ahead.

    We suffer Time's relentless ticks,

    Lost dreams, and words unsaid.


    The long Spring days have warmed

    Until there is no turning back.

    The swollen streams have had there fill,

    They hold it with no lack.


    And yet, it seems we want to hold

    Onto the old ways too.

    But if your choice is always bold,

    The future is for you.

    image

    And so the Mother's cloaked in green

    This early Springtime morn,

    And everywhere new life is seen,

    As we, once more, are born.

    Things do change so fast

    From good and better to bad

    But, there is still hope

    Lovepugs....I only know of Neulasta from TV ads and did not know that it blinks. I'm glad your 'lovely miracle worker' is doing its job for you during your chemo treatments. (((( ))))

    So glad to be here.

    Gained weight on chemo.

    Nurse said it was a good thing.

    Tell that to my pants!

    My dog is dreaming.

    Eyes closed, legs twitch, she whimpers.

    Hope she's having fun!
