6 word saturday

Clear blue sky
family coming

I learned a new poetic form this week called a hainaku which consists of
three lines,  three, two and one words.  Perfect for 6-w-S

My oldest nephew and his wife arrive today for a week in a nearby gite, and his sister and her family  are coming on Sunday.  It’s a good job les gars (the chaps) are back after holidays so the village bistrot will be open.  It’s sad, but I can’t cope nowadays with cooking for more than the two of us.  Once upon a time I liked nothing better than a houseful of people.

Jock is restoring an ancient bike, and after 48 hours of WD40 and tinkering
he may be setting off who knows where, looking like this:
Jock ready to bike     jock reading the instructions 14.8.14
 ……..  Ominous: he’s reading the instructions!

    A hainaku sounds challenging Viv… I may give that a try myself!

    Only recently encountered this form myself, V. May give it a try, but…
    Enjoy your family; let someone else cook.

    Bless him, he looks such a lovely chap! 🙂 I must have come fairly close to meeting him, Viv. We were on the train for Rouen. Would that have taken us to yours?
    Enjoy your company this weekend. I hate cooking for a lot of people. I just get flustered and worry if they will like it.


I love it when you leave a Reply
