My Mid-Year – Heeding Haiku With HA


My mid-year was full of news and adventure. Started with a big bang in Bavaria with Him Indoors, HRH the son and K, greeted the New Year with fireworks and champagne. We had some grilled food at home and walked around town.


Come February and we were off to India for an adventure of our life time. Him Indoors and I couldn’t believe that we flew in an A380 business class and it was jolly fun. I even made my own drink at the bar, mixing my cocktails. We saw the wonderful Taj Mahal – one of our Bucket’s List. So exotic and the love story behind the building was great! Wish Him Indoors could give me a miniature Taj when I die. And the tigers in the wild, that was awesome! In fact, 2 tigers playing together one morning of our safari tour. We also went to numerous forts, places of interests and ate interesting meals.


April, I was off to the Philippines to see my mother, friends and relatives. We went to visit some of the 7,100 islands in the Philippines. We swam, walked, zip-lined, partied, shopped, etc.

May, HRH the son proposed to K and she said yes! We were all thrilled. They’re planning to get married next year. Looking forward to the wedding of our one and only one treasure.

My mid-year was cool
Full of experience and fun
India was brilliant

Philippines to Mom
Swam, ate, partied, shopped and talked
Nice to visit home

He asked her with ring
She said yes and we’re all glad
Now plan to be wed


Serenade – Heeding Haiku With HA: To Be Inspired # 5


By silvery moon
I sing my heart to you
Eloquence so soft
Seeking the steam of my soul
Bliss, star of my garden

Melody from heart
No cloud in sky to be seen
Watch birds fly somewhere
Till dawn when Nature smiles
Pursuing your affection


Friends Forever, Promise! – Heeding Haiku With HA: Friendship


best friends forever
since we first saw each other
we were both seven

all secrets, giggling
the things we do together
sometimes we fight, too

nothing can part us
even if we have boyfriends


Friendship – Heeding Haiku With HA: A Gift


a gift of friendship
not taking it for granted
nurture it with care

nurture it with care
exclusively mine and his
when it breaks it hurts

when it breaks it hurts
like it’s the end of world
perhaps in that world

end of beautiful friendship
if we could turn back the clock
