    • Meowza, BellaSita and BellDharma! I am delighted you enjoyed my haiku! Have a joyous and festive holiday and stay safe and be well. 🤩😻

  15. Very cleverly done Eugenia, this line ‘the same as it ever was’ made me think of that song by Talking Heads. Once in a Lifetime.

    • Thank you, Rory! I use the line ‘the same as it ever was’ frequently in my poetry. I like to slip in lines from songs in my poems. Thank you for sharing the video – one of my favs!

      • Hey Eugenia, Happy Holidays to you and wishing you a lovely Saturday too 🙂

        Yes, also one of my favoutites 🙂

        I do the same with film lines.

      • Thank you, Rory! Film lines are fun to incorporate, as well. Wishing you a joyful holiday season.

  16. Congratulations ❤
