Sunday- haiku

another Sunday

bringing beauty at daybreak

outside my window


lizards scampering

squirrels chattering great truths

the yard is alive


sipping my coffee

i prepare to start the day,

already begun



what will you bring to the day

it is up to you

tonight i’m feeling indigo

kinda blue but naturally so

no real reason for sadness

nothing newsworthy, no new madness

just gonna give myself permission

to simmer in this somber disposition

maybe tomorrow will be a magenta kind of day

but tonight i’m feeling indigo

patchwork girl (haiku)

sins of her father
black swatches and blue ribbons
of mother’s neglect
she’s a patchwork girl
pieces stitched together by
vivid crimson thread

Blue and partly broken

Blue and partly broken

man has taken herย flowerย 

made a poison of sex

before she ever had a chance

to bloom

on the vine

in the sun


but no worries,

“her injuries are minor”

Today is Blue Monday

following info from :

Blue Monday

While Blue Monday isnโ€™t officially a holiday, it does have the dubious distinction of being named one of the most depressing days of the year. It falls on January 18th each year and is supposedly so depressing because of a combination of post-Christmas bills, the abandonment of New Year resolutions, low sunlight levels and cold weather. Not exactly a day that you would want to celebrate.

Blue Monday Customs & Celebrations

Although the formula behind Blue Monday is seen as pseudo-science, some people have taken it upon themselves to claim the holiday for themselves. They have decided to treat it as an โ€œanti-holiday.โ€ Instead of trying to stave off the blues which accompany this time of the year, they decide to embrace the blues by listening to sad music, refusing to use happy greetings and by refusing to leave the house.

Of course, other people are taking the exact opposite method and are actually celebrating this holiday. They do so by enjoying โ€œblue foodsโ€ such as blueberry pies or yogurt or drinking blueberry wine. They also often show movies with more upbeat themes โ€“ such as comedies.

I think the blue foods thing sounds like the way to go…. enjoy!!
