Monday Morning #Haiku 202 — Lockdown Sky

May 2020

Breathe deep. Look skyward.
Nature reclaims the airways.
Forget-me-not blue.

May 2012

Vapour cLouds up high...
we scribble the world's future
with metal crayons.

    1. Dear Rochelle,

      Thank you. That word “brilliant” is always such an encouragement, and most gratefully received. I can see that the artist in your appreciated the concept of a crayoned sky!

      All best wishes,

    1. Hello, dear friend from afar! Lovely thoughts heading back your way from the sunshine coast ๐Ÿ™‚
      PS I’m really hoping I’ve surfaced fully this time, rather than remaining semi-submerged. Am mindful of promising many times to write a very important book review. Today my mind has shifted into a different gear, having cleared away a lot of dross and gained a sense of direction. I have a to-do list on my desk in front of me. The book review is No.2 on it, after today’s blogging, which was No.1, so provided I don’t succumb to the dreaded virus overnight or suffer some other catastrophy, tomorrow seems quite likely.


  1. Oh yes! Sarah in da house!
    Love these two haiku (haiki?)
    While the first is lovely just by the fact that the skies are so quiet, I hae to agree with Rochelle, that second one is brilliant!

    1. Oooo, Dale. A brilliant from you, too ๐Ÿ™‚ Today is good, and long may it continue. I’ve managed to smile more times than I’ve frowned this Monday. That is a huge reason to celebrate.
      PS I just took a very artistic picture featuring a snail, having told Mister that you would be truly disappointed if I missed such a photo opportunity. Will save it for another post very soon.

      1. Now that is indeed a wonderful thing!
        You are right. I would be truly disappointed ๐Ÿ˜‰
        I cannot wait to see it. I now think of you immediately when I see snails ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thank you, Andrea ๐Ÿ™‚ Sadly, people can have very short memories, which I guess is why we have anniversaries to remember such as past wars and the Holocaust. I wonder if we’ll have an official Corvid-19 anniversary to remember the heroes, as well as the lost ones. I’m fearful that people will go back to their old ways, some of which are detrimental to the planet, as well as to themselves personally. It reminds me of the song “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”.
