Roberta Writes: Sunday Stills, Birds & Vocal, Time Capsule Haikus

I have entered the Time Capsule Haiku challenge on Vocal. You can read my four haiku as indicated below:

Lost Youth:
Little Knowledge:
Role reversal:
River of tears:

Terri’s Sunday Stills challenge is birds. I love birds and here are a few of my photographs:

This is Eleanor – She is sitting on her favourite tree stump
If I remember correctly, this is a Hammerhead
My fondant Roc from Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Crystal Caves story and cookbook
Bird cake I made for Mr Fox (hubby’s) birthday some time ago. It features an eagle on its nest, a peacock, a barnowl, a green Knysna loerie, and a woodpecker
Fondant woodpecker

  1. Wonderful poetry, Robbie! Those birds are so exotic looking! I’ve never seen a bird with a hammerhead–so unusual! But your fondant birds steal the show! That eagle looks awesome, as do all of your little critters! Great to see your post for Sunday Stills!

  2. Wow! What incredible baking! I can bake, but I never got to the fancy stuff, maybe because I don’t like EATING icing. But your stuff is too beautiful to eat. I would feel like a murderer lopping off the head of one of your creations!

          1. That is an interesting question, Marsha. In my view, you must always have a balance in life. We need to work to have a good quality of living but we don’t need to overwork to have an life of excess and unnecessary luxury. So I work and do what I need to, as well as I can, but I put my spare time and excess energy into artistic endeavors that make me rich in happiness and not money. Does my husband view life the same way I do, probably not, but that is up to him. He does follow me prancing about all over the country side in pursuit of hippos and marsh birds – haha!

          2. That sounds like so much fun, Robbie. I think your artistic endeavors bring fun, not just to you, but to everyone who gets to see them. I know I love them. 🙂
