Haiku My Heart, My Kitchen

In this, my kitchen
No difference seen between
Sacred and mundane

Again, rebecca hosts Haiku My Heart Friday

Which makes me so happy because it's been one hell of a week and for ten minutes, I slowed down and looked through all the marbles in my bag to play this game.


  1. The marbles in your bag are perfect! Sacred and mundane in the kitchen - creation abounds and feeds us well.

    Yes - my mother was not a 3rd grade teacher, but first generation American who was determined that all her children would speak "perfect" English, whatever that meant to her. I can still hear her, unbiddened most times, hissing "Sound it out" when I'm writing something and stall, even for a second, on the spelling of the word.

    I, indeed, understand the eye rolls when you hear "Soap. Sope. Soap."

    Happy Haiku Fridy!

  2. perfect.
    i make this my daily ambition,
    finding the sacred in the mundane.

    love your salt of the earth presence in my life.


  3. Nice.Mundane things can also be sacred.

  4. Delphyne- I will take that spelling bee to my grave. Sigh.

    rebecca- To me there is no line between sacred and mundane and even the line between sacred and profane is mighty darn slim at times.

    Syd- To me, the salt is more sacred than the cross. So is the egg and the broom and the sweet holy breast.

    Ms. Bastard-Beloved- The best thing about Haiku is how short it is, right?

  5. Yes, but that's also why this bitch can't write one. SB has not a measure of brevity. SB must be expansive. It's her damn nature. Laugh.

  6. Oh love! Sacred in the mundane. ♥♥♥
    Ordinary Holiness.
    **blows kisses** Deb

  7. I fucking love your house and your kitchen. And I am fucking grateful that you stopped by my place to read my Haiku.
    And don't you just fucking love Rebecca? She is one of the best!
    Oh, and I love the fucking idea that I can come to a blog and say the effenheimer because it's acceptable.
    Fuckin' A.

    Sacred and mundane indeed. From the sublime to the ridiculous is but a short leap!


  8. To me the sacred IS the mundane. The gift is seeing it.

    I think we're in agreement here.

  9. Sacred exists within the mundane. Expressed perfectly through words and image. Thank you for the reminder.


  10. Ms. Bastard-Beloved- You are often brief and directly to the hardcore point. That's one of the things I love about you!

    Deborah- Your Haiku blew me away. Thanks for coming by.

    Spadoman- Ha! Charmed, I am fucking sure. Your Haikus were very moving and the pictures said so much too. Come visit again if you feel like it!

    Nancy C- I agree.

    paper-n-soul- Your words and picture were perfect together! Come back anytime.

    Sarah- As was yours!

  11. I absolutely LOVE this!!! Mundane IS SACRED!!!

  12. Kitchens are more cozy sometimes than the livingroom! A kitchen NOURISHES us body and soul! Yeah!

  13. I like that. It is so in my kitchen, as well.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
