April 21, 2012: FTLOH-3

Circus in spring,
Kids play, hippos’ kiss…  Eye float!
Munchausen laughs…


Tiffanie King

The silly season…
Buddha just sees still water
in a world gone mad.


Kaleidoscope Spring –
my mind flows with breezes in
beautiful daydreams.

Ordinary Girl, Ordinary Life

Bridge over fun, Clown 
rests, Two-tail stunt… Mind-flight! 
A Buddha smiles.

Circus elephant
Free but still performing tricks
Knowing nothing else

She said “Surprise me!”
Perhaps I went overboard…
Strangest date ever.


Family Haikus

Elephant on ball
Bubble girls splash, lady floats
Aware Buddah laughs



Nude and numb under
Its white coat, the tree awaits
Spring’s warm, gentle kiss.


Lady Marilyn Kay Dennis

hippos compare cavities

who is this genius
hippopotamus Mister
Markie McGiggles?


Linda Vernon

Markie tries to think
Hippocampus has decamped
Smoke pours from red ears…


Mark Armstrong

Alice would be lost,
where even dreams multitask –
down this rabbit’s hole


Ordinary Girl, Ordinary Life

A hole to escape!
Run quickly! We’re just havin’-
Family picnic… :)



What is a Haiku?

Ohhhh, I get it now
My last comment was a fluke
(What are the chances!?)


A consciousness shift
“just go with the flow” they said
Now we have no wars

It just so happened
on the day we went aboat –
found odd things that float.

Karate Kids

My son Blue Belted Deu and his Black Belted Japanese Opponent after the fight.IMG_1376

My son lost in the tournament but according to my good friend Mark Armstrong  as quoted,  “In a case like that, winning is not really important. Having the experience is what’s important, and I’m sure it will serve him well. Just qualifying and getting into the tournament is a great achievement– he can be very proud of that.”

And I am so proud of my son 🙂

Here is the video of the fight …  Enjoy!

Training In Japan

These are some pictures sent to me by Chlly and Deu.

Hatchi: A Dog’s Tale

After reading Phil’s


Farewell My Faithful Companion

I am inspired to post this movie trailer: Hatchi.

In memory of Phil’s bestfriend,


This is the MOST heartbreaking film of all time. It is about a a college professor who takes in a dog he finds abandoned, and both find their lives changed forever as they form an unbreakable bond. Based on the true story of Hachiko, an Akita dog in 1920s Japan remembered for his remarkable loyalty to his master.



Watch the movie, and this story will take you…

Music Passion- Flowers

Guys how about a Japanese Band? Let’s all hear Alex’ Music Passion – “Gloomy Flower”…. 🙂

For more info about this fun game click Music Passion and join us!

The Spire Cranes

This month’s Music Passion theme is flowers (for more information, check out allaboutlemon’s Music Passion page), so, since I am always anxious to introduce the under-heard sounds of Japan to Western audiences, my entry this month is by the 1960s psychedelic rock band Jacks (what, did you think the 60s only happened here?) from their iconic 1968 debut album Vacant World (からっぽの世界). In the original Japanese, there is only one song on the album with a flower word in the title, 「薔薇卍」 (“Bara-Manji,” which means Rose Manji), but when the titles were translated, another song, 「裏切りの季節」 (The Season of Betrayal), was ‘translated’ as “Gloomy Flower,” and that’s the song I’m posting here. This is a great album by a great, short-lived but highly influential Japanese band, and if you like this song, I definitely recommend checking out “Marianne,” the brilliant opening track to the album.

Here’s my…

The Spire Cranes

This month, the Music Passion game requires any song with the word “moon” in the title. As anyone who follows my other blog knows, I love Japanese music. So I have decided to go with a rather emotional song by the short-lived band fra-foa, whose first album, 宙の淵 (The Depths of Space, 2001), is a perfect pop-rock release of soft and loud material. And one of their most popular songs from the album also happens to have moon in the title: 「青白い月」 (“Pale Moon”). The song is about lead singer Mikami Chisako’s brother dying when she was young (apparently from drowning). The song starts whisper-soft but explodes into wailing cries during the chorus. I have translated the lyrics into English below.

fra-foa — Pale Moon

When I was very young
my kind older brother died
and the grief of the mother
who gave birth to him
was deep like…
