Haiku - Gathering Water

mist
gathering water
my eyelashes

inspired by:

Mist
Low-anchored cloud,
Newfoundland air,
Fountain head and source of rivers,
Dew-cloth, dream drapery,
And napkin spread by fays;
Drifting meadow of the air,
Where bloom the dasied banks and violets,
And in whose fenny labyrinth
The bittern booms and heron wades;
Spirit of the lake and seas and rivers,
Bear only purfumes and the scent
Of healing herbs to just men's fields!
Henry David Thoreau

Gotta have that Joe n' bagel; then all is right with the world. Thanks for the morning laugh! Good thing I ate first.........
Yes, now the feeling. Patricia
Yeah, I can relate. But then, be grateful you don't live in Faluja. That should put a slight smile on your face.
Story of my life, Davey! ! ! Sweetly, Gina.
