Princess Haiku has a New Year's Thought


End of the world or not, peonies, azaleas and camellias
will still produce beautiful flowers....

Ends and beginnings are supposed from the imaginary middle by taking life much to literally. Requirements for a good story but life is real — eternally.

Hello and Happy New Year, Princess!

I just wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments. I've been away for awhile, but will be back to blogging, next week (hopefully, Tuesday).

Thanks, again, and I wish an inspiring 2008 for us both!

Happy New Year. I hope you take a little more time than you think you need ...to rest and get fully better.

Beautiful, succinct, like a haiku disguised as a post:-)

My goodness what a beautiful blog you have! I just love it. (I'm here via Tangled up in l'heure blue.) Your posts are just what I think blogging should be: thought provoking, beautiful, and a reflection of the writer's heart.

Happy New Year Princess Haiku! I hope it started beautifully for you. Also, I wanted to let you know that I'll mail your collage tomorrow. I'm so so sorry it took so long... life got in the way of my best intentions... Hope you'll like it.

A poem for you Princess :

"S'asseoir sans bouger
Il ne se passe rien.
Le printemps arrive
L'herbe pousse"

"Sitting down without moving
Nothing happens
Spring is coming
Grass is growing"

-Soiku Shigematsu-

And Happy New Year to you !

Nature's beauty enfolds us, always. Time is irrelevant.

I just read on Mr. Dylan's blog (I don't know why I like to call him that. Bein' raised in the South?:-) how really bad you've been feeling. I do hope you're gettin' better. If my energy can do anything to help, here it comes!
