Haiku Monday: SUMERU

This week's challenge is hosted by Chickory, who has tasked us to write a haiku based on our reactions to a selection of images by Nick Peterson, which in turn were inspired by a Zen-Buddhist concept. As beautiful and compelling and inspiring as I find these images, I've just plum run out of steam and have not a single more word inside of me to express how I feel about them. So I'll let Bjork do it instead:




Now head over to Chickory's to see what our weekly round of haiku-cuckhoos have finely crafted for our awe and amusement.

I like Bjork's SUV!

moi said...

lx: Yes. I need that for freeway traffic. Out of my way!

Boxer said...

Hey! Where's my comment from last night? Booooo.

I think you did a good job with an alternative option for the Haiku. Your poor brain needs a resty, pal.

xoxoxo

czar said...

Take a rest. The world needs full-strength Moi.

Aunty Belle said...

A spring tonic is in order, mayhap? Or jes' a spring BREAK!

K9 said...

i understand! haiku isnt compulsory thank goodness! and isnt this a nice little ditty for the times? If you complain once more! now were all past complaining now...... its like Brazil a little bit in imagery. I love her vehicle. im sure it runs on algae. Icelandic people rock!

Moi! Happy Birthday! Wishing you tequila spiked cupcakes. Sounds like you are the one who needs Boxer's trip!

Have fun celebrating this weekend.

Thanks for your best wishes, everyone! It was a good day. I played hooky and ate sushi and went shopping. Back to the grind tomorrow, but tonight, a drink!

Karl said...

Happy Birthday Moi,

May you find the time in your busy schedule to celebrate.

Aunty Belle said...

Wait, wait...ya went shoppin'? Photos please!

Happy Happy Moi, Cherie.

Pam said...

Happy happy birfday to you! Happy happy birfday to you! Happy happy, happy happy, happy birfday to you! Hope you had a great day and pampered yourself and ate too much and maybe drank too much as well.

czar said...

birthday? Well, okay, then. A happy birthday to you.

moi said...

Aunty: Yes. Left all the deadlines squirming on my desk and treated myself to a sushi lunch, shopping, and errands. Discovered:

A. The skinny cropped colored jean trend, while nice in theory, doesn't work in reality. But a Helmut Lang dress (not made in China) I ordered on Gilt should be here today, so there is that.

B. After twenty years, the heavens parted, God said, "Let there be color," and I finally found a red lipstick I can wear: Smashbox Be Legendary in Mandarin.

Pam: Then I went home, opened a bag of Doritos, a tub of sour cream, poured a Lillet cocktail, sat on the sofa and . . . the power went out. Which may have been a good thing. I ate through 100 pages of Game of Thrones in no time.

Czar: Thanks! S.B. and I will celebrate next week when he's home. He has a birthday then, too.

Karl said...

K9 made note of you wanting Louboutins. (I had to Google it) So here you go. Funny I wouldn't have made you for a Jennifer Lopez fan.

fishy said...

Celebrate BIG! I'm sure you deserve some serious spoiling.

moi said...

Karl: Oh, the shoes! The shoes! Thank you. Actually, I hate Jennifer Lopez's music but I love her booty, because it makes me feel oh-so-better about mine. (She's not a skinny mini anorexic but looks healthy and hearty and like she actually eats a burger every now and then.) And, by all accounts, she is also a hardworking, professional, non-pain-in-the-ass of a person.

Fishy: I semi-celebrated yesterday. Will continue this weekend. I don't think I deserve spoiling so much as perhaps a wee bit of a break. Spoiling, if a girl can get it, is bonus.

Aunty Belle said...

Hello??

NObody is home anywhere--so youse elected Moi.

Whar's Boxer? cain't leave comments.

Curmudgeon's blog on Haiku is so fer down his pages now he woan see mah comment
I cain't even git to Serendipity from Curmy's as it says the link is invalid....

I has troubles.

PLEASE will somebody--anybody reading here-- let Serendipity know that wordpress hates Aunty. It will not let me sign in her on her pages so I can leave a Haiku or a comment.

Meanwhile, Buzz? Is an addition an' scouts , an' life an excuse??? SOME male must hold up the fellow's end of the bloggerverse (Wif' Troll and MRM AWOL, an Karl scarce as gator feathers, youse gonna have to help Curmugy, Buzz!




What happened to Troll, anybody know if he is on another Blog-planet?

Blogger is eating comments at Eggy's


Yeeeeiiiii!

moi said...

Aunty: I feel your pain. I can't get on Serendipity for some reason, either. It was working just fine for me and now it's not. No word from Troll, but Buzz is buzzing around here somewhere. There's a lull, but it won't last long, I'm sure :o)

Karl said...

@ Aunty Belle: "an Karl scarce as gator feathers" not likely to get better any time soon. Just remember, strap enough horsepower to the back of anything, feathers or not and it'll fly. Just look at the shuttle;)

czar said...

"SOME male must hold up the fellow's end of the bloggerverse" (Aunty).

Yeah, I know I'm a latecomer to this party (you southerners), but I'd rather think the reason you forgot me is that, like Muhammad Ali in his prime, I'm just so damn pretty.
