Bird of Paradise – Haiku – FOTD Challenge

FOTD – August 27 – Dahlia

Bird of Paradise

Take me on your vibrant wings

To a cheerful land

I haven’t been here for a long long time. I hope you are keeping your spirits up despite the Covid-19 calamity that has been causing so much grief all over the world.

As for me, I’m trying to catch up on sleep every day ever since my husband’s health problems started in November 1919. He’s had a few surgeries, spent a long time in rehab and came home at the end of February 2020, just in the nick of time before the Covid-19 pandemic panic. Now, our social life consists of visiting doctors! Being elderly and  not very healthy, we are advised to stay at home. Luckily, we live in a house with a garden and enjoy sitting in the sun, admiring the flowers around us and listening to the birds singing and chirping. A nurse comes to dress Sasha’s diabetic ulcer  three times a week, and kind friends do small errands for us, but the bulk of our shopping is done online or by phone and delivered. Counting our blessings keeps us going. 

I don’t know when I’ll appear here again. In the meantime, I wish everyone all the best and stay safe.

    I hope you both stay safe in your lovely garden and that Sasha heals soon. Gardens, flowers, trees birds are such wonders. Here in the UK despite rain and gloom I wander round my garden every day spying new roses coming again and loving the scent of sweet peas. Best wishes, Marion

    What a beautiful Bird of Paradise! Looks almost otherworldy. Best wishes from this side of the pond to you and your husband: May God bless you and keep you.
