Harvest Dusk – Carpe Diem Special


“The goal of this Special is to write a new haiku in the same sense, tone and Spirit as the one given of the featured haiku-poet.”

Jim Kacian’s Inspiration:

harvest dusk–
sitting in the wheelbarrow
with the potatoes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Ripened sugar cane
Rows of stalks shine in twilight
Fireflies beckon kids

Cloaked in spider silk
Sipping honeysuckle dew
Fairies spin magic
Awaiting festivities
Nature’s veranda adorned

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material aspects and consider the more spiritual facet, don’t we know of those who seem more at peace, more aware or living in the moment. Even when we do manage to feel a strong sense of self-esteem or self-confidence, we are not able to consistently hold on to it. For most, our sense of self-worth bounces around like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling strongly tied with our latest success or failure.

In an effort to eliminate labeling ourselves as “good” or “bad”, and clearly accept ourselves with an open heart … to treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we would show to a good friend … I would like to incorporate more self-compassion and self-kindess in my life.

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday … a spin-off of the suspended Occupy Blogosphere started by Amy of SoulDipper.

If any of my readers are interested in joining the nurturing, I applaud and welcome you to do so … the more the merrier!!

Midnite – Michelle’s Weekly Pet

Michelle's Weekly 51 - Midnite (1)Midnite
aka Middy aka Middy-Mister
10 years old

 

It became apparent after Midnite fell seriously ill several months ago, I do not have any good photos of him.  Being black, he has been difficult to capture clearly; plus he does not like his photo taken.  I promised myself to resolve this situation.

In addition, I did not realize until a few weeks ago, his inner right ear is spotted.   During a visit to the hospital, the clinic light struck his ear a certain way, and behold, I noticed the spots.  I thought something was wrong … immediately mentioning it to my husband.  He informed me, the spots have always been there.  I remarked “He is 10 years old, TEN, and I am just noticing??”  Mind you, it is not that I haven’t had oodles of up close and personal time with him all these years.  Why hadn’t my eyes caught on to this?  I felt like a neglectful mom!  “Well,” I informed Ray, I have to remedy not only capturing him in more photos, but including his cute leopard spots.” ~~~~   

Since he was shaved twice in the past few months, I tried to wait for some of his fur to fill in … but the sun was hitting his ears just right, I grabbed my camera and started shooting. This is from the first set!  Of course, he was covered in dust! :D Will keep shooting until I capture his personality!
