G’day all! It has been a while, a month to be precise, since I have posted anything! It has been raining madly here in Western Australia. This is rather unusual for us this time of year; though unseasonable weather is becoming the norm, with global warming and the destruction of our intricate ecosystem, mining land and ocean…. etc. We know it all, yet still seem almost deliberately unaware. We went to the beach for our regular walk; Paul took some lovely shots before the rain set in again. Is it spring here? Fragile, chaotic…. Life! Have a lovely day! 🙂
I have been writing quite a bit lately, but have not found any photographs to use. This weekend will hopefully be full of photographic adventures, although it will be raining with gusto here, we are experiencing spring storms. These are very unseasonable; leading me to believe more strongly that we are predominantly unconsciously slowly transgressing our planet, and it is kicking up a stink (deservedly)!
Once again, my husband Paul took this wonderful, thought provoking photograph, leading me to write this haiku poem. I really love haiku poetry. It is succinct, therefore promoting depth.
I wrote this poem back in 2000. It is tongue in cheek humour, that I carry with me readily…. I believe we need to have a good old laugh at ourselves sometimes; particularly when feeling sorry for oneself for very little reason! I do it regularly, and go back to this poem for regular visits, to give myself a good kick in the pants! This photo I took of the pelican at Monkey Mia about six months ago seems rather apt! He or she was rather stroppy with me for getting a little too close, and pretty much chucked a sad at me! I found it rather hilarious, to say the least!
