In the summer, with my son I go medieval reenacting.  We dress up in our authentic clothing (some of which I’ve sown myself according to historical patterns) – and camp out in different areas of Veneto.  The above photo came from our Sluderno camp in 2014 … that’s where we keep the kitchen goods.  The bucket actually does hold water by the way …

TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Star – December 20, 2015

It’s been traditional in my family that the “man of the house” puts the star on the Christmas tree once it has been completely decorated.  Usually we put up our tree on the 8th of December, in Italy that is the Feast of Annunciation of Jesus’ birth to the Virgin.  This year, however, I put the tree up later than usual, and am awaiting my son who will arrive tomorrow, the 21st of December, Winter Solstice, to place the star on the tree.

This morning reading back mail, I came across a lovely haiku written by J Lapis at DarkLight Harbor which she had written for TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge curious I went myself to TJ’s site and found this lovely keyhole which is this week’s haiku challenge and decided to attempt to write a haiku this morning using the photo prompt.
