Pile O’Rust Haiku


Waiting, idle now
Percolating wondrous schemes
Blooming Pile O’Rust


I don’t do much with my artwork during the cold of winter, but when I happen by my celebrated Pile O’Rust out in back, I get a little rush of excitement.

It seems thast it’s not just the trees and bushes, but everything is dormant and silently preparing for the blooming of springtime.

On this first “warm” day after 3 weeks of bitter cold, a teensy glimpse of springtime hope emerges.

  16. Love the use of the word “percolate”. I use it a lot when I am explaining to the hubs why something has been “gotten” and then sits there “unused”. It’s not unused, I say. It’s percolating. LOL
