"Middle age is when you're sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn't for you." ~ Ogden Nash
“Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.” ~ Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Are you surprised to see me here on an early Saturday morning? Me too! But even so here I am with just a little something to share.. or maybe it's not so simple.. It's another haiku.. I am constantly told by people that they don't understand Haiku and that maybe these little poems are too deep... or too complicated ... they aren't really.. it's in how you read them.. read the following Haiku til you get to the ~
then take a break.. think about it.. can you see the lioness hot and dry.. flopping down in the dry grass .. to rest.. where do lions feed?.. they feed at or near the water hole when it's dry.. now read the next line..
See they aren't really so deep that you can't get to the bottom of them.. at least mine aren't..
But, thank you for finding me that smart.. I'm not.. Feel free to leave me a comment.. I love comments.. and it lets me know who reads my stuff.. you don't have to leave your name even.. a simple YOU ROCK! always works for me.. Now I'm off to feed the chickens....
Have a great Saturday!
weary lioness rests
under hot Savanna sun~
no water in sight
