My first Haiku!
falling with raindrops
autumn's red leafy fingers
grip the sodden earth
I have written poems and short stories since I was a child but I have never been able to write a Haiku, and I have tried many, many times! It's always eluded me. Till now :-)) Yay! An item ticked off my Covid-lockdown to-do list :-))
I made two friends smile today and that makes me happy. Giving is definitely better than receiving.
And I worked some more on my art commission. It consists of 14 different paintings (small ones :-) with a theme. I am working on the easiest ones at the moment and they are making me laugh. The one I plan to paint tomorrow I sketched today and David laughed out loud when he saw it. He also made a suggestion about the composition that is great so I shall tweak to accommodate.
David has completed the National Careers Service Questionnaire and the suggested careers include bi-lingual secretary (he only speaks English) a Royal Marines Officer (he's a lover not a fighter) a nanotechnologist (he has shaky hands!) a cake decorator (if they'd said cake eater I would understand it) football referee (hates football) a lifeguard (can swim a breadth) a non-destructive testing technician, a meat process worker, a textile dyeing technician...the list goes on.
He's very, very talented it would seem and reassuring to know we won't starve.
Jeezus *rolls eyes*
