Bee’s Poem of the Day: Binge

There are times when you need to get yourself out of every day life. That doesn’t need to be a holiday in physical form.

It can be an escape into a story may it be in a book or on tv. In the last four days I escaped with the Turner family to New Zealand and the fictional town of Weld via the iPlayer.

Unfortunately for me the tv station cancelled the series “800 Words” in 2018. That’s life I guess.

Binging away – New Zealand or the States – no haiku today

I hope life is treating you well and if not good vibes come your way 🌻🙋‍♀️🐝

Bee’s Poem of the Day: Time

Time is a peculiar thing. I believe we all know this when we are born but once society teaches us its narrative we forget until we die or until a life event reminds us.

Happy those who won’t have to remember until their time is up… maybe it is not a good idea to watch “Miss Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children” just after a full moon.

Time is in a loop

Here we are all still children

The sun rises now

May time not confuse you and may you have a blessed day.

Bee’s Haiku of the Day: Greyhounds

Hi peeps, how are you? I hope you are well and if not, know, I am sending good vibes your way.

I’ve been out with the dog for about an hour. We met lots of other dogs which is good because she misses having a pack. She is an ex-racer greyhound and grew up in a kennel with lots of others around.

We hope to be able to get another one once I am working again. Greyhounds are such lovely dogs. They are often treated rather badly when racing. We dont know what happened to Sherky but she gets rather scared when we talk in a certain way or make certain movements.

We assume she has gone through a lot because she can be quite stubborn and thats not a preferred trait for racing dogs. She is one hell of a dog of contradictions but we love her to bits.

All I can ask you is please do not bet on dogs. It might look like a nice way of spending time but these dogs get literally slaughtered as soon as they don’t race well enough or are not good for breeding. It is appalling what humans do to fellow creatures.

Please have a look at these videos:

Animal Australia: Greyhound racing: What are you really betting on?

RTE: Greyhounds running for their lives

I am not adding more links because it upsets me too much just to think what is happening.

But if you want to help stop this cruelty you can sign this petition: Stop Greyhound racing

Thanks!

Greyhound Sherky this morning at Paston Way UK.

Your doe eyes shining

Wagging tail makes us happy

Others not lucky

Sorry, for being a little serious this morning but it is so important to stop animals being tortured just for our entertainment!

Love & Rage my friends Love & Rage

Bee’s Haiku of the Day 11.8.19

Today is a day of remembering for me. My mum passed away 36 years ago. I am now 13 years older than she ever had the chance to be and it feels utterly strange.

The pain has changed. It isn’t gone. Time does not heal everything but you learn to live with it.

Time did not heal it.

A mothers love lost to her.

Butterflies dancing

May you have a wonderful day and if life is hard for you remember: My thoughts and prayers are with you daily (its not just words: I send out blessings for you all each day).
