All Aboard- ( a haibun)
somehow we discovered that one could ride the train to the next town if you lay waiting just before the long curve.. where it slowed and the engineers view was blocked by the old pine forest.. everyone else already aboard.. my fat legs simply won't run fast enough.. I'll wait for them to return with the afternoon train..
blackberry brambles tearing at my skin.. I cried the train whistle blew
Thanks for stopping by my world today.. It has been a lovely day to be outside.. though writing and chores have kept me house bound most of the day.. I have enjoyed the wonders of a new bird feeder that Dave hung right outside of my window.. so far I have seen cardinals.. finches.. robins and wrens.. We have chicks and quail hatching.. chirping away beneath their warm lights..
pleasing sights and sounds surround me.. I welcome both comments and followers..
Thanks for stopping by today.. it was almost spring like today.. an excellent day to be outside..I look forward to the spring flowers that will soon be blooming.. Already I see the flat green spikes popping up here and there around the yard.. I welcome both comments and followers..
For all of us die-hearted serious writers.. they have some wonderful challenges that will test your skills as a writer.. or help you to become a better poet... they welcome you on this journey of change and innovation.. They invite us to Choose one.. or do them all.. but most of all..to have FUN! this is my very first try at this and I may very well be doing it all wrong but I have decided to do two of the challenges in this post..
"Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back. " ~ Arthur Rubinstein
Love life unpaid bills.. wars and rumors of wars.. soup kitchens.. the splash of raindrops falling.. and the laughter of children in the park.. dancing daisies in a chain.. love life and life will love you back.. Love People the crying baby at two am... the ten year old with a pudgy hand on her hip.. snarling.. crying.. desperate.. Happy to be free.. twenty year old.. Grandma and the lost soul with the sign on the corner.. just waiting for a chance.. to show.. to love.. to steal.. to hurt or kill.. Love people and they will love you back... sometimes..

Today has been another wet day.. the chickens clucked their displeasure and stayed up on their roosts most of the day.. getting down only to eat a few grains of soggy scratch feed.. and waddle to the nest to leave us some eggs.. even the ducks quacked at the skies as if they had had enough rain for a few days!..The dogs whined to go out.. then barked to come right back in.. Cooper slept.. Dave braved the rain to feed all of the animals and to gather the fresh eggs.. I must admit that I was lazy today.. I did laundry.. two loads.. I shopped for food and then cooked it.. nothing fancy.. just hot dogs with the fixings.. slaw and chili and cheese.. I babysat Hannah and Dani for a few minutes while their "Nini" went on a job interview.. and I played some games on-line.. and of course I blogged..
