Yesterday's Ikebana:

Ikebana # 79
7-28-2010




It was good to see my girlfriends once again.

In these continually hot days,
I am so tempted to cut my hair.
I have been thinking of doing it
for a long time.

But I love putting my hair up,
and I would miss that...

But the heaviness and care of it
is downright oppressive in Summer generally,
and this Summer particularly...

I'm weighing my options,
which usually means
I'll wait awhile...

It was another unbelievably hot day,
yesterday.

What made it different was that I had to go see my dentist,
quite a distance away.
But to me he's the best,
so it's worth the slight inconvenience
of the travel time...

When I got to Shinjuku,
up on the Yamanote train platform,
it had the appearance of a desert road;
the heat rising, blurring lines...

It was hot to breathe...

When I got to Shibuya,
I changed over to the Tokyu-Toyoko line.

There, sitting inconspicuously in a corner,
sits a DOUTER coffee shop.

To those who find it,
it makes all the difference...

Cool inside, serving hot or cold caffeinated beverages;
their coffee is wonderful.
But today, make mine an ice tea!

I brought a postcard sized sketch pad,
to keep my equilibrium,
and I started a new haiku/sketch series...

This is the first:

Big thanks to my dentist,
for making the whole process
as unstressed as possible...

It's been so hot here lately.
The pool is already warm.

Today is Ikebana,
and I'm plotting my walking route through air-conditioned stores
to get to the flower shop
and back in the noon-day heat...


My dear friend Mary
sent me some photos from "home".
She has a lovely garden,
and just seeing her summer flowers
makes me homesick!

I have done many paintings over the years,
while visiting my family & friends
in upstate NY for the summer.


This is one I've kept
for my own collection :

These are the tropical fruit
mangosteen.

Welcome back to Lorna,
she has returned from her voyage home,
bringing me all sorts of goodies from The Philippines!

Mostly, I am glad to see her beautiful smile,
once again!

I pass this cat almost daily,
on my treks to the market.

He's usually perched on a wall,
with his green, far-away eyes
surveying the situation;
never paying me any particular attention.

This time,
he was on the street,
near the rice paddy,
bird-watching...

I took his photo as I rode by on my bike.
He's gotten thin,
and I wonder if he's ill.
I've always admired his majestic presence;
his rusty hair and green eyes-
He would never allow me near enough to pet...

I took this while riding my bike
out of familiar territory.

It was a dark, cloudy day,
with balmy breezes.
My favorite kind of weather.

Perfect, if you're a salamander...
