What exists today,

will forevermore exist.

“Where?” is the question.



(Is it possible to be blown out of existence?  I think not.                           This is the basis of my haiku.)

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...

  1. Ha! I appreciate haiku, but it eludes me. I just cannot count and I need more words. 🙂

      IB, you would learn to write haiku if your readers will only stick around for 17 syllables! My dream – a “fan club” who will read 800 words. I would want at least three in my fan club. Meanwhile, I write haiku. 😀

  2. You said what needed to be said, in very few words. Thank you for that! I love reading everyone’s blogs but don’t always have time to read the long ones. :/

      I base my premise on the First Law of Thermodynamics which essentially states that energy/mass cannot be created or destroyed within a closed system. (I’m not sure what a “closed system” is.) However both mass and energy can be changed. If I had not been writing haiku, I would have had two questions: Where? and In what Form? Yeah, it is deep! 😀

    Pranabaxom, You’re taking the 5th and I’m zipping my lip. LOL

    I like reading haiki. I enjoy journeying with blogging but I often skip some of the ‘deeper’ discussions I endeavour to keep my ‘childlike’ awareness of the possibilities in all things. L.O.L.

    • oneta hayes says:

      I love “back and forth” with people as long as it doesn’t degrade to vulgarities. That has never happened. But I have left some blogs because of that. I do read some that really stretch my mind, but I don’t have time for many of those. Faye, do you have more than one blog site. I think I saw you on something else the other day.
