Weekend grook* greeting, week 30

splashing-165192_1280.jpg..  this grook reminded me of a saying that contradicts.. “en svala gör ingen sommar” (one swallow doesn’t make it summer)… although I think Piet might have wanted to point at the beauty in the small.. and perhaps that one can imply great things in small and subtle ways…


A RAIN-DROP
Atmospheric grook

With what adroitness
Nature gleans
sublime effects
with modest means!
A rain-drop streaks
my window pane;
then it is spring-time
once again.


..  it also makes me wonder if perhaps weather was more stable before…  a rain-drop on the window seem to happen at any time these days..  :-p

..  anyway..  hope you’ll have a weekend filled with observing all the wonders in Nature…  big and small…

Weekend grook* greeting, week 29

pokemon-1521104_1280.jpg….  it’s summer break here…  and seems like my intellect is taking a break as well…  I don’t quite understand what Piet means with this  grook..  perhaps something about that laughs should be wholehearted to be worthwhile…  and I guess some people having invested in Pokemon GO and enterprises related to that “laugh all the way to the bank”…  (if there is such a saying in English…  there is in Swedish..)…..    🙂


HIGHBROW HUMOR
a recipe

Half
the laugh.
Twice
the price.


..  and recording steps is fun…  get well over the 10.000 a day my clock set as goal for me…

… anyway…  hope you don’t need a recipe for having fun…  rather that your weekend is in the sign of humor…
