Haibun Thinking – A Single Wish

Funny thing about “Hope”. It is both fragile beyond imagining and yet often has a tenacity and strength seemingly unbelievable.

How can this be?

Perhaps an analogy made with a wish upon a puffball, to enlighten.

One Single Seed – One Single Wish

Fingers carefully grasped fragile puffball’s stem, not wanting to disturb ethereal seeds too soon. My wish might not be heard, but blown away. The wish made, I blew gently, scattering fair dandelion seeds upon moist morning breezes.

Wishful thinking indeed for hopes to be realized, yet all that is needed for the puffball is but a single seed. A lone survivor tossed in unpredictable winds of nature. It only takes one … one seed to reach the earth for regrowth and fruition.

And so it is with hope. The seed of potential and possibility, cast upon winds of fortune.

May our hopes, dreams and wishes reach fruition. All that is needed is one single seed!

hope strengthens me

a most delicate framework

of possibilities

Once upon a special time, there passed a great decree
There would be ten days of love for thee and thou and me.

On the first day of happiness, a smile upon my face

I send a loving greeting filled with warmth and grace.

To all who live upon this earth who share with me this day

I wish you all the very best in every single way!

With sincere affection,

A Special Wish

the kids

These (fluffy little heart) Christmas ornaments of the children are a 9 years old, but I love them still.  So thought I’d share with you!

I wish for all those who take for granted their family members, remember

any one of them can be gone in a heartbeat. Cherish every moment with those you love.

This is my Special wish to each of you!

One Wish

The Perfect Wish

If you were one wish away

from a just perfect day

What wish – would you wish

just for you.

My wish, you can see

Would most obvious be

I’d wish – that your wish

would come true.

May your wishes become dreams and your dreams … reality!
