70th anniversary of auschwitz liberation


location: auschwitz, oswiecim, poland

in remembrance

cut into pieces

the ailing heart bled no more

because it was dead

haiku catchoo!

old trees


for this week’s challenge, the mission is to write five haikus — one for each of the five days starting today and leading up to the friday.

first the old tree wails
as the leaves are blown away
then complete silence

funny the squirrels are
in a tree bereft of leaves
they run but can’t hide

in winter, black cats
gobble the day with eyes closed
not when you’re in love

i step on dead leaves
walking the familiar path
winter has arrived

the lake’s blue today
like the color of her eyes
before they gave up

Happy New Year To All

I watched New Year’s Rocking Eve on TV last night, and for the time, Dick Clark, who founded and hosted the event since 1972, was missing in action. He died in 2012.

As he would have said, the show must go on and it did with as much fanfare as before. Ryan Seacrest, his designated successor, did an excellent job.

The show started with a two-hour segment remembering Dick Clark. It was a fitting tribute to his many accomplishments through the years. It just felt a little weird hearing them talk about him in the past tense.

So long, Dick Clark. we’d be missing you.
