Magpie in a purple treehouse Haiku

To you I was a subject
To me you were a shadow
I wanted more

For Magpie Tales and The Purple Tree House Haiku Challenge.
And to my Christian friends, I send a wish for a Happy Christmas, to my Muslims friends, seasons greetings and to the Atheists, a year of human cooperation.


  1. "Peace and Joy!"

  3. Right back at you Stafford :) Be safe on the boaty and enjoy the fireworks at the New Year celebrations. Let's hope 2012 is a good one.

  4. Lovely Haiku....this morning I looked to see if you had posted lately and ahah
    I said "So there you are!"
    and I am going to use your greeting for Atheists- "A year of co-operation" for everyone;Christians, Muslims,Jews,HIndus,Buddhists etc- we all need to get along.
    So here's a toast to a better year-a year of co-operation!

  5. When I was a little girl living in Sandy Bay, Hobart, Tasmania, Mrs Ruth Bowling was our landlord. She was the sweetest,most adventurous woman I knew, living by the code, all in good time.

    Muslims, Christians, Buddhists lived together - students all and we celebrated all festivals.

    Christmas was special to me-until today.

    And Mrs Bowling was the epitome of an embracing woman- a lovable atheist for sure.

    Merry Christmas Stafford. And thank you for reminding me how I loved Mrs Bowling.

  6. Greetings:

    Happy Holidays.
