Busy Haiku (Bee)
Day in and day out
A worker bee stays busy
Ignoring the heat
I wonder what kind of June flower has drawn the attention of this busy bee…anybody know?
This is my sixth 2017 post for year three of Cardinal Guzman’s photo challenge, The Changing Seasons. You can post a photo gallery (V1) or a single photo (V2) that showcases your view of the month. You can check out the Cardinal’s page for the general challenge rules and join right in! His photos are fantastic! Like last year, I am planning to add a haiku along with my single V2 photo each month. Even though it has been said that a picture paints a thousand words, I like pairing pictures and words; both can still mean different things to different people.
All my previous Changing Seasons posts are in one place under the Changing Seasons header at the top of the page. Take a look around my blog if you are interested! Comments are welcome!
Rainbow Haiku (Transient)
Look for the rainbow
Knowing it will fade away
Right before your eyes
Everyone seems to enjoy the sight of a rainbow. Perhaps, it is because of its fleeting beauty that we are amazed every time!

Focusing on the vibrant colors of this Eastern Bluebird was easy while it stood among the leaves on the ground. Once it took flight, however, all focus was lost. Although it is lacking in clarity, I still like the way the essence of movement is captured in the next photo of this lovely little bird!

It sure looks appealing, doesn’t it? This display of produce at my local Food Lion grocery store drew me right in! The bright, fresh produce separated into individual baskets made for an inviting display. It made my eyes happy and my mouth water.
I love Mexican food, including guacamole! On the day I took this picture, there was a worker mixing these ingredients into spicy, fresh quacamole right before my eyes. And, she was giving away samples!
As you can see below, the recipe and shopping list were posted on the side of the display!
Of course, I had to try the recipe out for myself. While I can’t guarantee that you will like it, I sure did!

(4 pictures.) Pal has been my friend for nearly nine years. We first bonded as I held him close on the car ride home. My brother and I got Pal from a breeder, but we say we rescued him from less than perfect conditions. With his blue eye, he would never have been a show dog, but we didn’t care. Turns out, Pal has had to take medicine for seizures since he was a pup. He is a trooper and just carries on his merry way. He is a sweet boy, and he loves to play, eat, and sit on your lap!
Pal is a curious basset hound and follows his nose. We have to watch to make sure that he could never accidentally wander away on a mission to follow a scent or chase a butterfly!
Pal is smart and knows a lot of commands when he is paying attention. It’s certainly easy to get his attention with food!
Pal loves to be near his people. When he gazes at you with his pretty eyes, or rests his slobbery chin on your lap, you know you are loved!
Pal is a good friend and part of the family!
