Oh - and the second coming of the plague. Sigh... Even as I write this, I am stopping periodically to turn away from the keyboard and cough my lungs out - practically. This version has been going on since about the 27th. Suffice it to say we've all had it. I seem to be having a hard time getting rid of it. I spent the entire day in bed/couch yesterday. Rexy was an angel and just played at my feet all day. The best line from Rexy about her sickness, "My throat is gone, but I think I have a beaver." I didn't laugh! Now my entire family is talking about "beavers."
Lastly, Haikus! This time it's just SueAnn and I. I'm sure my inconsistency has been affecting participation - not to mention the holidays. Next post I will be writing about goals for 2009 and I will talk about future Haiku challenges.
As usual, SueAnn's Haiku contributions are things of beauty. She is definitely a poet.
She had another for the winter theme:
Edged with snow and ice
roads disappear in the night
and for the Beginnings theme:
Starting over again,
feeling the pangs of rebirth
Begin this life rejoicing.
And from me for the Beginnings theme:
Start, start, and start again
fall down, stand up, just don’t stop.
To stop is to fade
Beauty is in each
beginning; fresh, clean, and pure.
To begin is all.
Happy New Year.
