glad to be doing this again! And yours, as usual, is gorgeous in every way.


Oh Rebecca. I see you there, as a little girl among the red hens. It is your "child spirit" among them there in white, feeding them with angelic rhymes and the gifts of hope and love that only you have to offer so many. Thank you for being you and for being home. Thank you for this lovely photograph which elicits what is so essential in Mexico--the beautiful simplicity of everyday life.
Much Love,


Great haiku and photo. Thanks.
Re Mexico Mondays: I'm a little disappointed because it'll clash with my planned series - "Manchester and Milton Keynes Mondays". That's life I guess.

Have a nice day, Boonie

Someone Is Special

You were missed. I,too, am glad you are back. Wonderful picture and Haiku!


I think every kid should feed chickens at some point...that photo and haiku are so sweet,so warm!


I so want chickens.

Ms. Moon

I think red hens are a sort of angels. And black ones and speckled ones too.
Welcome home, rebecca. It is always so good to see you.


(wanted to share one I wrote yesterday, too...)

Kim Mailhot

I have such deep Mexico love too but seeing it through your eyes and those of the Lovely Deb will make it even deeper I am sure !
Big Love, Rebecca!


Ah, you're really really back.
And gracing us again with your mellifluous and highly appreciated comments.


dreaming as well and marigold still fill my head.



She looks like a little angel. I love her pigtails and the way she's wearing her pretty white dress to feed the hens. I love the red hens, too. Somehow I got mixed up this morning and linked to last week's haiku, so here I am now in the right place!


thank you so much for inviting me to return to Haiku my Heart. You are instilling a love of Haiku in me. Great to see you writing again.

Beautiful. I love the nostalgic quality of the photo and the magical essence of your words. There's something wistful about it all.

Thank you for correcting my link. I have no idea what happened.
