Saturday Morning

And come the dawn,
how slow and easy the Sun-beams
Long legs of a great crab,
move through the sea of mist.

~ Takarai Kikaku (1661-1707), Haiku in Mad in Translation by Robin D. Gill

  5. And that shot is perfect with your quote.

    Here, the river rages.
    Swollen and dull brown.
    Spring runoff races down from the mountains.
    Flood watch races through my peace of mind.

  6. Once in a while you need a break from the routine or you become boring, right?

    Gratefully, over millenniums the beauty of daybreak, dawns…day after day, marking a new beginning where life blossoms…the long ago, penned, beautiful words of Takarai Kikaku continue to hold pause, where impact Breath(s) takes root, grounding…

    From a favorite storybook character “Poinsettia” a little girl pig… ” Felicia Bond is both writer and illustrator of the book series… from the book “Poinsettia & Her Family” a line comes to mind I think it is the ending line…”and when the Sun finally rose, Poinsettia was there to see it!”
