    Crumbs … that one’s SO deep, Janet, that I don’t know if there’s any way out of it … Another or these lovely combos. Keep ’em coming …

    Inspiring quote and true… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Good morning (here), Drake. I’m glad you liked my haiku and photo. Once I found out how to put words on photos, I started really enjoying myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful haiku, Janet! Love the lotus photo.

  5. Lotus flowers are so very beautiful. I have lots of hand lotions and
    soap with the scent. Your words are enlightening. ~~~ : – )

    • This little bunch is on the little lake near our house every summer. I don’t know if I’ve ever smelled lotus. I’ll have to look for it. Glad you liked the haiku as well.


  6. Suzanne says:

    Brilliant. It does feel like that sometimes these days.

    • Thanks very much, Suzanne. Words are thrown around so often now without, I feel, much regard to what they really mean or even if they’re necessary. Words are used as weapons and to divert attention, rather than to clarify and be sincere and succinct. If you love words, it can be a bit discouraging and annoying. End of sermon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you’re enjoying your weekend.


      • Suzanne says:

        Not a sermon – I agree there are just too many words being said – politicians and news presenters are some of the worst culprits but the list is long. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I’m generally not a fan of haiku, but this one is worlds apart from the average short verses. So true, so poignant.

    • I take that as an enormous compliment, Hannah. If you like it as much as I like your food photography, I’m thrilled.

      Is it getting to be spring where you are now? It’s finally spring in Chicago and I’m loving every minute and flower of it!


  8. Lovely one! Glad spring has sprung for you! ๐Ÿ˜€
