Watercolour on Paper: a Haiku – Haiga, from My “Poems from Home” Collection

Saucepan haiku

There’s a lot of chattering of pots and pans, every time I go to my saucepan drawers. Sometimes it’s like all out war!

I grab for a saucepan lid, and it’s slid way up the back…I reach to get it and I’m – attacked by a metal grater, snapped at by saucepan handles and held back by the corner of another lid, jammed in by the drawer beneath it – like a joint effort, to not let me in! By stealth and determination – most of the time I win. πŸ™‚

Often they make,Β the trek to the back recesses, to find just the right saucepan and lid, quite easy. One day I plan to get more of these. Please! No moreΒ kneeling on the floor, trying to reach into a far corner of a low cupboard – I want to save my knees.

There’s hardly been a dull moment in my kitchen. Just as well; as this is where, as a mum (or “mom”) of four boys (now young men) I’ve spent many, many hours..and in the laundry.

I still make well worn paths around my kitchen and to the washing machine…and what a blessing it is, to have the privilege of a home and family.

Hope you enjoy my haiku and haiga and my post which, especially with the splash and play of “rhyme” and “personification”, seems to have almost turned into a poem!

Have a great day!

  1. Lovely haiku and artwork.. I too battle with my pots and pan lids, except my knees are old and can’t take any weight upon them, so I blindly reached in and hope I grabbed the correct lid.. Love this post.. Bravo….

    Take care and happy blogging to ya, from Laura ~

  2. An old dish-rack inside your cupboard helps keep those lids organized. Works for me anyway. I like the haiku, the art-work and the story. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, for your encouraging words about my art and writing. I like the dish-rack idea, thanks again. πŸ™‚ I may well, try it; I usually do like things to be orderly. Though getting these unruly saucepans etc, to behave could prove a difficult task! Love your haiku. Hope you have a lovely creative day. πŸ™‚

  3. I love your art work and your poem! It’s nice that you can make something as ordinary as pot and pans look so pretty and appealing! I do battle with my pans too. I have an interesting little spot where they can get trapped between the cabinet and the side of the stove!! Very frustrating!
