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)

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.

Sarah is a British eccentric who writes offbeat fiction, haiku and tanka poetry. When stuck for words, she sketches or paints instead. She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

    1. 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 🙂
