He doodles you ku - (9th to 31st January)

 Before I start the post, welcome to all my four new followers! And also to the new visitors from not only neighbouring countries like China, Pakistan and Bangladesh, but also from countries like Montenegro, St Kitts and Nevis,South Korea, Lithuania and Belarus among others. I am so glad to have you visit my blog, but don't have the faintest clue as to who you are, so why don't you leave a word the next time you visit? I'd really love to hear from you once in a while and that goes for all my other regular visitors as well. Just a small comment to let me know you've been here! Not every time, but how about just once in a while? And I hope you've been enjoying my recent posts and the small stones.

Well then -  I had not been very regular with my doodleku(s), that's why i hadn't posted them here on the blog after the first week.But now that the month has drawn to an end, here's my harvest of ku...the responses to HM Yuan's doodles on Yay Words.

 Day 9

my breath
the flame steadies

Day 10

last star--
the light going out
in her eyes 

Day 11

caught in the brambles-
the things I thought
I had forgotten

Day 12

from puddle to puddle my walk over the moon

Day 13

stoned window pane fighting the unseen

Day 14

new coolness-
slipping my hand 
through his 

Day 15

circling each other-
we search for
the right word 

Day 16

or starry night
as long
as we have
each other 

Day 17

finger-painted clouds-
the weight of
all those lies 

Day   19

evening ennui-
finally, letting down
my hair 


letting down
my hair

Day 20

behind the lily pads-
a hint
of the moon 

Day 21

my reply
in your mailbox 

 Day 22

her tiny hands
in mine-
moonlit path 

Day 23

night boating-
my oars stir
the milky way

th boat settles 
n its reflection

Day 24

in the hibiscus
the hum
of honey bees 

Day 25

those eyes...
how do you read
the summer storm? 

Day 26

keeping one eye closed starry night

ice crystals
on the telescope lens-
sound of stars

Day 27

lost key-
the locked gate
to Neverland 

Day 28

stone curlew...
the butterfly takes
a closer look

five minutes at the bus stop-
a brief fling
with the wayward wind

Day 29

barred windows-
as if it could stop
the moon

Day 31

in his wake
my tattered dreams-
The Balloon man gone
