evening peace






Let the day unwind,

You will become fresh again

Rest in evening’s peace.

(Revelation 21:5)

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

      I too, if I will take time to see. I generally feel bad because the day is done, and I’m not ready. I guess the haiku is really a lesson for me. When my life’s evening is here, I hope I don’t stress out over what I didn’t get done. I always appreciate your words, Calen. Thanks.

    I needed that right now! I’m on summer break right now (remember those days??) but I still feel that urge/anxiety that “I’m not getting enough done” or “I should be doing more”. STOP! If I don’t wash the windows today, they’ll still be there tomorrow! Why do I chain myself to a list of jobs?! So yeah, thanks for this!

    • oneta hayes says:

      You wash your windows every year? Mine can go for five years and I can still see out. 😀
      Actually I was more bothered by my summers off being my time to procrastinate; after all, there is tomorrow. When school was on I knew there was no “make-up” time in my schedule, so I kept on it better. There was no procrastinating then – it was do it, or it won’t get done. But seriously, your summer is resting season. What’s not done will have to wait nine months, but then as I said, I can still see out. 😀

    Amazing how life changes when you realize that hours and hours of cleaning which perhaps should be done are in the grander scheme of thinks not the most NECESSARY if a day is to be well-lived. Look up…..at least once every day….stop breathe! Love the haiku prompt and the beautiful image. Thanks.

      😀 Image was from clip art; so easy to get. My computer is too old to put Windows 10 on it and Chrome is no longer pulling pictures for me, and I don’t know much to start with, so I’m glad for clip art!

  4. Lovely haiku and picture. 🙂
