The dazzling sun gleam

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).

          Are we lost? I was pointing to the fact that the sun is a dazzling sky show that we do not recognize for the amazing sight it is. The haiku content is that the dazzling sun hindered the sky walkers show. Which is really more impressive if we had never seen either before? The sun. How much we take for granted. My subtlety is too subtle, maybe? I will join the ranks of great poets if I continue writing in such a manner that one misses the point! I’m laughing at myself. In truth I never thought of such thing until you made the comment. Once you did, I thought, “Well, what do you know. I’ve been hit by a stroke of brilliance.
