School Shooting- A Haiku

They Tormented me.

Nobody helped me. The gun

Is o.k., I’m not.

Perfume- A Haiku

Mixture of fragrance

Helping us smell so lovely

Pleasant scents you give

Pencils- A Haiku

For writing or art

Their abrasion leaves a trail

I met this swamp warrior this weekend at a crawfish boil. He brought a whole army of friends just like him. He was very happy to pose for a macro photo.

The last two days have been amazing! What a privilege to witness a piece of history that included the life of Mrs. Barbara Bush, former First Lady, and America’s Grandma. I have always admired her as a person and I knew I could not go without witnessing or taking a few photos of the repose trip that left Second Baptist Church and funeral procession today. There were so many stories about Mrs. Bush and she was loved by so many on both sides of the political aisle. The first two photos are not mine. They are from the card given to guests during the repose viewing at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church. I would say may she rest in peace, but knowing Mrs. Bush she is probably already teaching the angels to read in heaven.

In Houston you can find just about any ethnic food you want if you take a little time to browse. One of my favorites is Japanese food. The Seiwa Market located at 1801 S. Dairy Ashford has everything Japanese. If you are a Japanese food fan or curious take a trip and buy a few things. You’ll never know if you like it, until you try it. Here are a few photos from the market that will give you the vibe. I really LOVED the Japanese Ice Cream. I hope you check it out!

As a native born Texan, I am proud of my state flower and look forward to it every spring. Traveling to smaller places away from urban sprawl, I usually encounter another favorite in search of bluebonnets, the Texas Longhorn. Let’s not forget Indian Paintbrushes, Buttercups, Winecups, Phlox, and various other wildflowers too. Then after a day of traveling the reward of a beautiful sunset. Peace! What more could one ask for? These photos were taken in the Ellinger, New Ulm, Industry,  and Welcome areas. Enjoy!

Robin – A Haiku

Beautiful orange breast

Sing a song for me I rest

Listening to you
