summer haiku d'été – there on the bench = là sur le banc = lì in panchina




there on the bench
a bouquet of flowers
a little boy kisses 

là sur le banc
un bouquet de fleurs
qu'un garçon baise

lì in panchina
un mazzo di fiori...
un bambino li bacia

This is one of the vilest instances of animal cruelty I have ever seen. The pig tied his severely injured 9 month old puppy in a plastic bag and tossed her in the garbage. Thank God the poor wee tyke was saved and love was showered on him. I strongly urge everyone to comment on this appalling act! Please visit this site, I love my dogs so much, for the terrible story with a sweet ending (and you may weep as I did):

I Argentée


I Argentee 620

I Argentée

I Argentée have lived a hardy life:
a Maine Coon mix, I’ve forded babbling rills,
the freest spirit, who’s never suffered strife!
Why, I have scaled formidable forest hills,
where I’ve run into coons and surly bears
who’ve never phased me in the very least;
I’ve roamed the fields and sounded foxes’ lairs,
so why be so surprised when I am deceased.
Because I pride the space I always crave,
although I was on leash, the leash was loose,
to leave me running free, for being brave,
since as you know I’ve always been so spruce!
For all the bugs I’ve chased and mice I’ve caught
I bid you, fairest friends, to mourn me not.
