Meet my neighbors


Round ears lift, listen,

soft curious eyes inspect

dinner distraction.

Beyond old farm fence

An unfamiliar sight

wearing a sun hat.


Across the road from our house is a farmer’s field where  he sends his cows to graze. Sometimes they stop nearby and I can’t resist taking photos.

      1. Yes, if I felt more confident about their fencing I would go right up to it but I ‘m concerned that in their eagerness to gather around that the fence could be compromised and an accident could happen if not that day, on another day. I would really love to have a closer visit.

  1. Hi Janice,
    I was wondering if you would be interested in being part of a “Haiku Hub” I am thinking of setting up on my blog. If you would like to be included just let me know in a reply and I will add your blog to the Hub Page. I am hoping to get as many Haiku writers together to share their writing. In my other life I am a Japanese teacher who has a passion for Japanese poetry and art.

    1. That sounds interesting– thank you for inviting me–yes I would like to be involved…is it basically a listing to facilitate sharing or did you have something else in mind as well?

      1. A listing of fellow Haiku Writers with links to their blogs firstly and then the possibility of some themed or prompted writing or if individual members want to write a post about poetry (haiku) we could add that too. I am happy to get ideas of course. 🙂
