creeds and genders, all life
is here, we are blessed
relish in the new, welcome
all, open your heart
Another week has whizzed by, and here we are again, prompted by our Francophile Antipodean friend, TJ, to pen another haiku! This week, he has offered us the word vibrant, or a lovely image of some flowers to whet our appetite. I went for the word, inspired (I’m not sure if that’s really the correct word) by the political wranglings that we have seen here in the UK, post shock Brexit vote.
I was brought up in a multi-cultural Birmingham, loved the variety, the sights and sounds, the smells of a city where vibrant colours could be seen and (to me) mystery tongues could be heard on every street corner. Of course, there were struggles, of course there were differences, but I have no doubt that I benefited from meeting and learning from others from different cultures from such an early age.
In my heart, and my mind, everyone is welcome. I don’t care who you are, or where you come from, as long as there is respect, as long as there are open hearts and minds, as long as there is love.

Brilliant bouquet of colorful seed packs. In AZ we won’t be ready for that for a few more hot months
Thank you, Kia. They’re actually different coloured inks – but that doesn’t matter at all 🙂
Sorry, I see that now. But they do look like seed packs, yeah?
Oh yes, I agree! No apologies necessary, of course 🙂
I’m getting mine together tonight. I just love his prompts
I fully agree with your sentiment! The world is full of wonderful, diverse and interesting people. Your comment should be the creed we should all try to live by. Best wishes!
Thank you, TJ
I was thinking seed packs too…Lovely words, Freya!
I can definitely see how they could be seed packets! Thank you, Shadeau!
This is just perfect! Love it 🙂
Thank you, Judy!
Hi Freya. I was wondering if you would be interested in being part of a “Haiku Hub” I am thinking of setting up on my blog. If you would like to be included just let me know in a reply and I will add your blog to the Hub Page. I am hoping to get as many Haiku writers together to share their writing.
Hi TJ – gosh, thank you for asking! I would be honoured… what do I need to do to keep my place on your hub? 🙂
Nothing at this stage at all. I am still thinking about what we can do. Just sharing haiku and blog links at the moment with maybe some challenges and other related articles now and then. How does that sound?
Sounds good to me!
