U is for Underneath

Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday letter is U.

Underneath the clouds, from the plane, I saw land
and photographed it (of course).

UNDERNEATH (haiku)
Underneath bright clouds
landscapes are dim in shadows
unaware of sun.

This haiku is being posted at 10: 22pm PDT Wednesday, so anyone reading this post earlier thsn that will have missed it. I composed it when I briefly awoke last night after I had already packed my computer for an earlyt departure for the airport. It seemed appropriate to add it while it still ABC Wednesday


Underneath a sky full of kites. Berkeley Kite Festival July 2007

I'm busy packing to fly again tomorrow morning - this time to Washington state for grandson Johnny's university graduation.

Have fun Granny. It's raining over here although the forecast looks brighter for Saturday. We had lots of wild wind yesterday and so the maintenance folk are busy replacing all the floor tiles at the stadium ready for the UW graduation. Hope all the graduation ceremonies go well this weekend.Congrats to your grandson.

Well, anybody named "Granny Smith" can't be all that bad... --Mom, country, apple pie, etc...

Interesting seeing your Fimo work in the right column.   I used to work at a store that sold that stuff, and it sure was a popular item...

I loved your Unders and Ups! As I was displaying them, my son instantly identified your mushroom as button stage amanita. I am enjoying the rhododendrons of Port Townsend now that we have arrived here.
