time to focus on
those winding yellow lines and
keep looking ahead
pee here pee there pee
on each blade, pole, stick and stone —
his reserves impress
crying and screeching in the
middle of the night
is not the road less taken —
his wait list is long
everchanging girl –
complex, courageous, happy
to be turning two
Oh, here’s something I’m putting on my wish list.
Check out these “haiku bangles” by DaddyDDesign.
I’m a sucker for bangles — they make me think of youth, fun and my girl crush on the entire band of Bananarama during my teen years.
And these bangles just have to be the best ones ever!
In the spirit and rhythm of 5.7.5, each set comes in a group of three, and then each of the three bangles is stamped with one line of a haiku.
For a standard order, DaddyDDesign uses this traditional haiku by an unknown Japanese author:
Night and once again
The while I wait for you cold wind
Turns into rain
But if that haiku doesn’t do it for you, you can also order the bangles with a custom stamped haiku of your choice, which is totally cool.
I’m thinking this has tremendous gift potential, no? How touched would your special someone be if you scribed your own haiku to be presented in a meaningful jewelry gift? Or if you found and chose that perfectly romantic haiku by Masajo Suzuki?
You know you’d be considered the awesomest for at least a few days….
not our usual
wooded path, deeper, damper —
it smells like earth, worms
Love the cows and hens –
but can’t they build a subway
in my new home town?
