As ever very piquant of the moment Gillena - always good to read your words that are always so fresh with life...

These are marvelous moments -- the birds in the garden are always a welcome chorus. Also, the video was wonderful! I found myself tearing up.

Khaya Ronkainen said...

That a clever way of sharing your haiku collection, I enjoyed the video. I also suspect the mask will be a "character" in many stories, long after the pandemic is over. :)

"dissolves / sweet songs of garden birds" - wonderful!

Love how you used the word 'cadence' and the haiku video is delightful!!!!

Magaly Guerrero said...

Lockdown is being relaxed here, and I'm worried. I hope all goes well, but... I have reservations. I continue to wear my mask (and show my smile just in Zoom).

We've been having a mixture of rain and heat. My garden is loving it.

Hazel said...

My favorite part of zoom meetings - I do not have to wear a mask.

I greatly enjoyed the haiku video!

JadeLi said...

Gillena, I enjoyed your sijo very much. Also what a neat idea to put your mask haiku collages into video slideshow form. Great idea! I remember many of them. Looking forward to part 2.

Jim said...

I liked you Sijo, Gillena. Not many good things were happening during 'lockdown'. Our governor dissolved ours, even for the school kids under 12 who cannot get vaccinated.
We wrote on for NaPoWriPo Day 20 (April 20) and it was fun. Mine was short also, six lines although they can be quite long.

A great idea to have the video in support of the haiku writeup, Gillena! It enhances the presentation!

Grand post, Gillena!
__ All ideals have a wish to heal, such seeds of graceful imagination. _m

a haiku dream
forms many thoughts in many minds
raindrops blend such seeds

You are so cleaver with this art. Have a very nice day.

That is one advantage to Zoom calls, yes
