It sees light of day 🙂
Persistence, key to success
Many seeds, one sprouts
You did it, my friend!
Thank you and god bless,
Reblogged this on Indira's Blog and commented:
Hi friends! Don’t miss the comment section, more relevant, poignant Haiku you will find here.
Knowledge is power
We all can do a small bit
Mustard seed moves hill
Thank you, dear friend, Indira – much appreciate the reblog.
All good wishes,
Something is wrong here. I reblogged it and now am not able to find it. Must do it again.
Lost in cyberspace
Once written it never dies
Wins follow failures 🙂
No worries, dear friend, Indira,
Wordpress plays up sometimes.
‘ All playing some part’ so true. And I thought it’s only developing countries problem. Each haiku is so poignant.
First comers took all
Now they blame the slower ones
The Academy Award winning documentary by Al Gore – An Inconvenient Truth – though some years ago, continues to be relevant. As usual the developed countries try to propose their version of truth.
So true. Sad.
Good one, Eric, and I don’t miss southern Cal., at all. Climate change…it’s just too bad that people can’t work near their homes. But the cost of living and salaries have not risen in sync. Too many people have to commute miles away, thus, the image you posted. It’s very sad to think what is happening to our planet…
Slowly it corrodes
Killing us from inside out
All playing some part
Yes, and it is happening all over the world.
Yes that’s classic LA. Flew over there many times and it hasn’t hanged much from the air though the locals says its worse now. An excellent commentary in a few words on how human knowledge has created a big mess which politicians and scientists don’t seem to be able to get a handle on. All because we who elect them are not willing to give up our lifestyle.
Destroy – the new norm
Children will fend for themselves
Freedom to chose death!
You are so right and it is getting worse in almost every country and city. Many luminaries even deny there is such a thing as climate change brought on by pollution.
Your image is poignant. I notice that it is LA – I’ve seen similar. if not worse, from the Loop 6 bridge over I10 in Houston, Texas. An image like that fully proves your Haiku! another would be the beach or the intestines of a dead gull, starved due to the masses of plastic in its intestine. we could go on!
I won’t sign off cheerio today but have a good weekend
Mother earth’s life chokes
Children party without care
Bitter harvest looms
I have seen images of dead animals washed up on shore – their entrails spilled and mixed with man-made waste. Heart wrenching.
In Singapore, recycle bins are everywhere, but people continue to throw plastics into the drainage system. Truly they are sick. Politicians in Singapore spew cliches but go no further. It is quite easy to resolve the problem – but like their reluctance to ban cigarettes (we actually have a huge British American Tobacco factory in Singapore) – it will mean losing votes.
Have a great weekend too,
Serpent, akin to our kundalini, gives spiritual enlightenment and knowledge. We with our greed have insatiable thirst to possess and abuse the gift. How much humankind have polluted will lead to our own self destruction.
However the world needs bad and good to balance. So we can play a different role at different time. Makes us wholesome and real with just enough evil and goodness, that’s what I like to think. This is my interpretation on a lighter note.
Enjoy your weekend, Eric.
Serpent of knowledge
World of duality
A well thought through comment that drew from Buddhist, Hindu and Taoist scriptures. Bravo! True, gifts we have many but each a double edged sword.
My weekend is well, and trust you have a great time too,
