For Tj’s Household HaiKu Challenge-Tap: “Tap, Tap, Drip”

Saturday Morning Challenges are Fun


It’s the day once again to Rise to the Challenge, TJ’s Household HaiKu Challenge that is. I’m so glad I found this weekly jaunt thru the fields of haiku creativity and expression from Edwina’s Episodes during the Holidays, an amazing blog in it’s own rights.  Here’s her entry for this weeks challenge. Go over to both and check in. Or perhaps you’d like to offer your own?

Here are some of my Thoughts about TAP.

I was thinking about this challenge of “Tap” all night as I pondered the multiplicity of applications.

These days, our home is undergoing some ‘renovations’ of sorts in the areas of knowledge we were previously sheltered from and reviewing long held, cherished and traditional beliefs about ‘Reality’, mostly gained and kept by nothing more than Faith in The Story we were told and the Authorities who gave them to us. My first ‘5-7-5’ then is a memory of former days when we thought Conscience was Externally provided.

The next is just because my favorite American Poet is Robert Frost. En Homage to his New Englander poetry and prose, his delight in the Natural world around him and the various gifts it provides, a ‘Hat Tip’ to Tapping Maple trees for their Joy.

The last is simple because of the Tap, Tap, Tap on the windows and Drip, Drip, Drip on our sidewalks and yard this week. Here in Arizona, it’s been raining almost all week and as you can imagine, we enjoy every bit we can get because it’s so hot and dry all the rest of the year. The Rain in Spain may indeed fall Mainly on the Plain, but not so much in Arizona!

So without further ado… My offerings for the day’s challenge: TAP.


I’m on your shoulder

an angel, directing you

“are you sure of that?”


Maple Syrup

sweetness from Vermont

there’s really nothing like it

pure love from a tree.


Arizona  Joy

streaks on my window

tears running from opened eyes

grateful for the rain.


Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and a Restful Weekend with family and friends. Enjoy the rain and receive Joy from Life as from the Kitchen… TAP.
