Mouse and Bread

  




winter morning -
this mouse here nibbles
my breakfast bread









Wintermorgen -
die Maus knabbert mein
Frü..stücksbrot








Usually my husband bakes the bread himself, but this one was sent by a friend, full of holes ... not good to spread the butter on it for breakfast ...
so the plate with the mouse came in handy !

morning prayer
on my prayer rug
a mouse washes his face


[before you pray, one prerequisite is washing face hands and feet.]

Gabi,
I was absolutely delighted by your nibbling mouse haiku -
and the German version has a hearty/robust quality.

fat mice!
a happy family fills
the plate


Hahaha... what plump little critters!! Oh please, I want some bread with butter, too, thank you.

fresh baked bread smells --
the cold kitchen warms
from the oven

Creative use of flawed bread. My little cousin used to say, "I want a fixed piece!"

Thank you, Gabi, for your mouse haiku. It made me remember something:

broken sleep -
active mice
safe in my attic


In most winters the mice run around the attic over my flat and make a lot of noise at night. As far as I can tell there is nowhere else safe that they can go.

Thanks Pia, and take care of the severe storm in Europe right now, not to blow the roor away above the mouse !

Wie heißt es so schön, gemaltes Brot macht nicht satt.

Gemalte Maus wird nicht dick ;-)))

Wirklich tolles Foto, vielen Dank.

I made this one up a bit ago in reference to someone else...

You are as a mouse
tiny, lost in a tunnel
without any cheese.

(Handy when you might wish a humorous way to let someone know that they are hopelessly lost..)
