Monday Bunday and Haiku Festival

Today's Monday Bunday offering features Tyler looking for the exact perfect piece of hay.

I although I consider myself by no means a poet, on a whim I joined the Haiku Festival. See more here at About New York and here at Pink Purl.

This first one is about the foothills that overlook the farm where we have a cow share from which we get raw milk once a week. Recall that the form of Haiku is 5, 7, 5 syllables.

hills roll with green air
moist and warm, breathes me in
such joy to melt now

And here is one written by the Spots.

roses sweet and pink
spotted rabbits they do meet
happy rabbits BINK

Have a good Bunweek.

Tell Tyler to look out for the postman - rumor has it, a gift is on the way

Hoppy Birthday Buns

"First, you must liberate the hay from the evil containment device. Then, dig deeply into the middle, being sure to spread out the hay as much as possible!"

Great Lesson Tyler!

We like both of your poems!

rochambeau said...

Your Haiku are both wonderful. Thank you for them.

Happy rabbits do indeed bink, Spots!

I'm glad to see Tyler finally found the "right" strand of hay. There's no stopping a bunny on a mission.

Fiona and Lando Bun said...

Brilliant poetry Spots! Oh, and nice one human.

Rima said...

Hello Diana, thought I'd say a belated hello to you and the buns :)
Love your new prints... and haikus too!
Hope you are fine n dandy
Much love xx

Tracy said...

Thank you for sharing your haiku...the first one is especially evocative! I'm Pink Purl, otherwise known as Tracy, co-hosting along with Elizabeth of About New York. :o) This even had been fun--a great opportunity to share art and poetry. Glad to meet you!

Shell said...

I liked your sweet Haiku poems. I feel there is a poet in all of us.

Happily Retired Gal said...

Enjoyed your haiku and the video too.
Hugs and blessings,

Glenna said...

I love the haikus, especially the rabbit haiku, and the video of Tyler efficiently removing the whole clump of hay from the bowl and selecting just the right strand.

PJ said...

This is a dazzling haiku and even better I think it has synesthesia.

RoadBunner said...

Both poems are great! Mario is partial to the one with "bink" in it.

Oh, and that wide camera shot does not lie! The Spots live in a WILLOW WONDERLAND!!

p.s. The photo was of the top of Mario's head. It doesn't show up a well as it did in person, but he had a serious case of bedhead and shedding going on!

Rabbits' Guy said...

Was that a big WINK at 26 seconds?

Holy cow the image. Me and a Haiku festival would be like me at a jitterbug festival! I just don't get it ... even two spotted, mamby-pambied rabbits do better haiku.

furrybutts said...

LOL! The hunt for that perfect piece of hay was very entertaining! Now you need to get Tyler another bucketful of hay so he can find the next perfect piece :p

Great haikus! I've never met rabbits as talented as the Spots!

Erin said...

That is so funny! He obviously didn't want his hay in that container!! :)

Annette F. Tait said...

what a super clip Diana - so glad Tyler got just the right one!

and their Haiku is very impressive indeed! your Haiku is also very good - it put me there in the moment.

perhaps there shall be more bun in motion adventures?
They are Spot on!

ilex said...

Lovely, ma'am. And the one by the spots is truly rabbit-brain. Very Zen.

Mary-Laure said...

I love haikus and bunnies are so inspirational, no?

M.Kate said...

Great Haiku..I must say I always have to read everyone's Haiku a few times to try to have a nice way with words..and I do love both :P Happy Bunweek..oh, who am I's Thursday!! it will be happy bunday sunday soon :P

YowlYY said...

Great haikus - I must say Miss Eve and Neville vote for the Spots' one, the key word is "bink" as one may guess :)
Tyler is certainly determined to find the perfect piece of hay in the plastic container...Miss Eve is so very similar in spreading the hay all over the place!

Crafty Green Poet said...

what a lovely video, so sweet!

I like your haiku too, though the 5-7-5 rule is not as strict as all that, really....
