TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Garden

TJ has given us ‘garden’ for this week’s Household Haiku Challenge, which you really must check out. His own haiku this week is brilliant!

Seeing as it is now well into autumn over here in England, my garden is looking a bit neglected, and there is not much to see. However, there is a little bit of colour, and I have played with the photo a bit trying to bring it to the forefront. (I am a total amateur at photography as you know, but am pleased with it)!

Anyway, on to the Haiku:

Untroubled by rain,

cosy in their purple capes

sweet peas hang in there!

I have taken TJ’s advice and am linking it to the Daily Post’s ‘Careful’ photo challenge.

Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge: #67 ‘Cheer’ & ‘Call’

I am liking the words this week for Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge, which are ‘cheer’ and ‘call.’ I have taken a bit of a liberty with the ‘cheer’ part of the challenge and have taken it literally!

I decided that I would write my haiku about the changing colours of the trees in autumn.

Autumn pays a call

Yay, time for a new outfit!

Does orange suit me?

Autumn arrives

Tj’s Household Haiku Challenge – Eggs

TJ has set quite a challenge this week, giving eggs as the prompt to use. His photo and Haiku were beautiful. (He always manages to make everything looks so special, even the humble egg)!

Mine, of course, has got an entirely different take on it than his!

Here goes:

Standing tall and proud

The egg, such a brave soldier

knows the end is near!

Tj’s Household Haiku Challenge: ‘Teacosy’

Well, I have gone and done it this week! TJ has chosen ‘teacosy’ as the household item and has written a wonderful Haiku accompanied by a really fun teacosy.

I have just turned out my drawers (ooo er Missus), looking for my tea cosy. It’s gone! I had one from 20 years ago that was part of a whole range of tableware which I collected. I can’t even find an image it online, so, I will have find one that I like the look of instead! This one is very like the ones my nan used to knit.

A good cup of tea

Warm and cosy from the pot

Answer to all ills.

You’ve Either Got it or You Haven’t!

When I went out for a walk with Miss Hap on Saturday, it was a beautiful, sunny afternoon. As we passed the field she decided to show off her cartwheeling skills, and I said I would take a photo of her.

Actually I made her do a few so I could get a good shot!

When we got home and had a look, this was the best one I got!! I do try hard!
