Is anyone out there into Haikus? A haiku is a Japanese poem made up of three lines. The first line consists of five syllables; the second line, seven syllables, and the third line five syllables. Each line relates to the other to depict a statement of some kind. For instance, here’s one I wrote a few years ago after tasting red snapper for the first time.
Dinner was superb
Red snapper on the menu,
Tasty on the tongue.
And here’s one I wrote yesterday after being hacked.
The happy hacker
Is missing his common sense
What a nincompoop!
I find it fun and brain teasing to come up with these little three liners. I’d love if someone would send me one of their haikus.
Have you ever wanted to wave a magic wand to make a certain something appear or disappear? When I saw this little guy on Pinterest, my imagination ran away with me and I captioned him with:
“Abracadabra! Covid19 Disappear!”
This was originally posted to my Facebook page, but then I realized not everyone sees that, hence this post. Sometimes we just need to have a bit of fun in our lives, and a touch of humor. Enjoy the rest of your day.
This came my way yesterday and to my mind certainly provides food for thought. Happy Sunday.
In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense,” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”
The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”
The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”
The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover, if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery, there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”
“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”
The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”
The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her, this world would not and could not exist.”
Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”
To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”
Maybe this was one of the best explanations of the concept of GOD.
Have you ever wished there were more days in the week? What if we were to take our week and shorten each weekday, plus Saturday by four hours making twenty hour days? Sunday would remain twenty-four hours. With the twenty-four saved hours we could have a new day between Saturday and Sunday, giving us a three day weekend.
Did you know that singing is good for the soul? Singing also relieves stress, exercises the lungs, and decreases depression. All this is my own opinion, but it works for me. And take this little guy…can’t you just hear him? (Of course, he could just be waiting to be fed but I prefer to believe that he is singing a new song).
