1831

animation from google dot com


Returning home from church last night, an ordinary day-two of a new year, crossing the street, happens my head is down for a brief moment. Next thing i'm aware of someone in front of me, so i step back one pace raising my head, i'm looking straight and direct, into the smiling eyes of Machel Montana(T&T Soca Monarch). My brain registers, my mouth zips, i continue walking, Shucks!! i should have at least said Happy New Year, duh!!!

stars are out -
the twinkling of lights
on Christmas trees

It is hard to act normally when face to face with a celebrity, but I guess they appreciate the anonymity once in a while.

We've all had those moments that we look back on and wish that we had said/done something differently. A nice haibun that demonstrated this very well. Oh, well, maybe next time, right? Happy New Year to you!
