under the pergola

For the I Doodle, You ‘Ku  challenge, on Aubrie Cox’s Yay Words blog:

Because I love teddy bears and tea so much,  I just had to write two!

under the pergola
we linger over
our second cup
dappled sunlight
he says my secrets
are safe with him

Tea for Two (or More) Trolls

I’ll be honest. Halloween is not my favorite holiday. Not even my second favorite. But Aubrie Cox’s Tea with Trolls post went a long way towards putting a smile on my face, after the last candy wrapper had been swept up, and we finally turned off the porch light. I’m still playing with haibun these days, so I submitted a haibun and a senryu for the post, in honor of all those trolls I’ve owned and loved in the past.  So click the link to Aubrie’s blog, sit back, read, and enjoy! Happy post-Halloween!
