Haiku (Struggle) Plus Belated Birthdays & Awards

My Haiku Entry 4 Leo’s Meme: http://haiku-heights.blogspot.com/2010/08/prompt-4-struggle.html

I am hurt by bears,

By bears with chairs,

I am hurt by sharks with locks.


I struggle with rhymes,

With rhymes that make my poem

Writing longer times.


Sorry for missing your birthday…

  1. Hi Ji 🙂 thanks so much firstly for the wishes.. I had sort of a silent birthday this time out.. 😀

    both haikus are very lovely, like the second one a lot.. 🙂

    Btw, I’m back to my original pen name.. Leo.. 🙂

  2. awww….. so sweet 🙂
    i will surely go and wish them 😀

    nice poem 🙂

    and happy birday to ur son 😀

    WHERE IS MY CAKE!!!?? 😛

  3. Awww Ji….you are so considerate and loving and always think of everything. Thanks so very much for this…it means more to me than words can ever say!!! From one mother to another…I love you …and thank you. Happy birthday to everyone and I’ll go visit:):):)

  4. I’m not sure what you meant when you gave me this address. Wow, you are popular!My birthday was July 17th and I had NO CAKE…. until the next day when I had ice-cream cake with my grandkids!

  5. This is nice Jingle. Sorry but I am not on the computer much these days since school started. Both my grandkids are in school this year, but the youngest only goes a half day. I have to take care of her plus look for a job, and dealing with all this legal stuff that is giving me trouble like insurance and so on. I have no choice but to find a job, because my Social Security is not going to be enough to live on. So I am down to giving up something and it has to be blogging except for once in awhile as I have time to pop in. I am so sorry about this but my husband didn’t leave any money for me to live on. Like everyone else we were living from one month to the next, and the few dollars I did have the hospital and doctors took it. I do pray you and everyone will understand, but this is life, we do what we have to do in order to survive, and I refuse to sit around crying and worrying about my situation, I believe in helping yourself and do all you can to make your situation better. So I am going to go back to work. All of you can help by praying God will show me favor and help me to find that right job that won’t be to hard on my health, and age. Can you send me the link to where you want me to vote? I will take time to do that but sorry I won’t have time to accept awards, and post them. I will try my best to read at lest one poem of each of my blogging friends this weekend. Happy Birthday to you all. I pray that God bless you with many more.

    Love Viola

    1. good luck on searching for a job…
      I understand you.
      no problem..

      viola, if you live in the United States,
      you shall apply for unemployment benefits, they may pay you up to $800 each month before you find a job, a part time job only gets you that much, also, there are welfare system in the U. S., if you are a citizen and has NO job, you may get paid plus some food items each week…..

      take advantage of what you have,
      live well…..
