A Philosophical Haiku

Poison in her eyes…
Continents shift to avoid
her unspoken words.

Poison Ivy

If you sit by the river bank long enough,
you will see the body of your enemy floating by.

(A Japanese proverb)

Playing Pooh Sticks

And, as a seasoned player of the great game of Pooh Sticks, I’m very patient.
Thank you, Winnie the Pooh & Christopher Robin for teaching me this skill.

  1. A post full of goodies! I love them all. Brought back memories of playing Pooh Sticks with my little ones. Thanks for another great post, Sarah.


    • Pooh sticks is a wonderful game that passes on from one generation to another. I played it as a child with my mother, brother, and friends. Then I played it with my children and their friends. And now my grown-up daughter and I play it with her daughter and son (my grandchildren). It’s a tradition we must keep alive 🙂

    Pooh might have been a bear of very little brain but he knew how to play…


  3. Nice haiku – a very unappealing portrait created here – I know people like that!
