I did enjoy your haiku. Thanks for sharing.

Re Your link-up:-
Is it themed?
Is it a haiku or poetry link-up?

Have a nice week.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Borrowing water is better than going thirsty! (But I do hope she figures out a way to untangle her bucket.)

Donna@LivingFromHappiness said...

Absolutely beautiful....so sad women were left out of the world of poetry for so much of history!

I loved this Gillena. I don't ever recall getting a bucket entangled but did have to free other garden implements with loving care and provide alternative support where necessary. I thought I saw it grin or was it just the curl of a tendril...who knows?

Myrna R. said...

This is beautiful. So much said in such short form.

kaykuala said...

so her bucket entangled
she borrows water

In life one must react fast before it gets worse! Very true gillena!
