Have Some of My Cake

Good morning to all my readers and followers.

Bright sunshine forecasting a beautiful day and I’m celebrating my birthday by having a coffee, doing the laundry, and generally staying home and avoiding all human contact. 🙂

Not quite true, as I’m cooking supper at the seniors’ residence this afternoon; also, my dear husband gave me a card and a kiss before he left to pick up a few groceries. Thankfully,  I can visit online as well, so won’t you all join me this morning for a cup of coffee, a piece of cake, and a few relevant verses.

Here are a few haiku I wrote yesterday, combining thoughts of warmer days to come with our current situation:

morning joggers
run rings around
my safe space

a bumblebee
not knowing the law
comes way too close

if only mosquitoes would get the point of social distancing

Thirsty Sea

Like many folks this week, I’m staying home for the most part — which is never a cross to me. I’ve enough projects on the go to keep me busy for many months, if the world lasts that long.
If you read my last post, you’ll know I’ve been going through my notebooks today and “releasing some imprisoned dragons.” Here are a couple that rose up from the sea:

the ever-thirsty sea
drinks in the summer storm
cloud by cloud

plastic pop bottles
sink beneath the waves — the party
will soon be over
