BP: Stardust Haiku #53 (Poetry with a Little Sparkle)

Valentina Ranaldi-Adams’ monthly online journal, Stardust Haiku: Poetry with a Little Sparkle, has just been published. May’s journal has haiku poets from across the globe. These poets live in Australia, Canada, India, Italy, Nepal, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. This pedometer geek poet is pleased to have one haiku among this stalwart group. It is as follows:

spring planting

dandelion seeds found

in the colt’s tail

~Nancy Brady, 2019

Thanks Valentina for selecting one of my haiku; I truly appreciate it. To read all the haiku, check out www.stardusthaiku.blogspot.com and choose this month’s issue, Stardust Haiku #53. All previous issues can also be viewed there, too.

On another matter altogether, Healthcode.org’s May’s Million Mile Month (when combined with April’s numbers) has reached the goal of a community-wide million miles a day or so ago. So, too, was this pedometer geek’s personal goal of one hundred miles reached. Every day from here on out is just adding to the numbers for both the community and me. And, of course, there are the health benefits, too.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    I can so imagine your haiku – though I haven’t been around horses for a very long time.

    Good for your health goals too! We got a walk in before more rain. 😀

  2. Thanks, JP. I must admit that I am not around horses all that much, but I know it’s possible for seeds to get caught in animal’s fur. I have been fooling around the Haiku Foundation’s Renku section lately. I was trying to link a two-line phrase with a haiku that was about wind using kigo from a particular list and I chose colt. The phrase arose from that. While the leader didn’t choose mine from the long list, he did mention it as one of the ones he considered for this interactive renku. I decided to pair my line with a fragment that seemed to fit and submitted it to Stardust. To be honest, it was one of the easiest haiku I have ever written (at least for me).

    Keep up the walking. I know I do, and I also know if I don’t get my exercise, I feel it later. I didn’t get hardly any walking in yesterday. It was just so rainy and chilly throughout the day that I didn’t feel like braving it. Today was better. Rob and I walked to the lake and watched all the waves throwing spray everywhere. I imagine that Canada has no water at all since the north wind has pushed them to our side of the lake. Have a great weekend. ~nan
