existing

merely existing

is not the same as living

it’s waiting to die

interesting book markers (part 1)

I’ve come across many interesting book markers over the years.  Of course some are plain, some are in the expected form with a nice quote or pretty picture…but some make me wonder about what exactly was going on in the person’s life who last read the book I’m now holding.  It’s easy to imagine for some…the dried flower, the business card…others are a bit more perplexing the strip of toilet paper, the lock of hair…

I myself have marked a place with whatever is handy…a used envelope, a stick of gum, a paperclip…yet some of the things I found I don’t think people meant to discard.

Anyway I was just think of this and decided to write a few haiku on the subject. Here is #1

unpaid power bill

now reading by candlelight~

books illuminate

dreams draped in gingham

confined by picket fences

small dreams, simple life

Easter Bunny~ haiku

 

Image result for chocolate easter bunny

oh, you do not hop

your ears, they do not listen

poor Easter bunny

your nose does not twitch

sadly you are not fuzzy

poor Easter bunny

 

Image result for chocolate bunny bite out of ear

yummy chocolate

ears will be the first to go

poor Easter bunny!

middle ground ~haiku

why is it always

too much or just not enough

where is the balance
