LACK OF VISION

           “I’ve been reading.” Arel peered over his newspaper at seven-month old Rachel in her highchair. “There are places for people like her.”

            “She’s a person.” Havah seized the paper and ripped it in half.

            “In one of those schools she can be with other persons who are…” he lowered his voice, “…blind.”

How To Write Believable Characters Without All 5 Senses

Rachel Poli

It’s not every day we come across a person who doesn’t have all 5 of their senses. Some people are blind, some are deaf, and some are both. Some people have anosmia (no sense of smell), ageusia (no sense of taste), or both.

I have all my 5 senses, so it’s hard to imagine having only 4 or 3 of those senses. And I’m amazed at the people who go through life without all 5 senses simply. Yes, it’s something they have to do, have to get used to and live with, but we, as human beings, tend to take everything for granted.

If someone is born without, for example, sight or hearing they don’t know how different world could be. They live in the same world but view it differently and they live their lives just like everyone else.

  2. Rations of rum were given to sailors in the British Army to be mixed with lime juice because it fought off the scurvy.

heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, August 16th 2017, everlasting love

Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

everlasting love surrealEverlasting Love (surreal fantasy art)

Dear friends of MLMM,

Time flies when you have fun or when you have a busy life. But time never flies according to everlasting love. Everlasting love … love everlasting. As I look at myself I have found everlasting love in my wife and family, but I also found everlasting love in my passion … creating haiku … and in my work as an oncology nurse. Everlasting Love we say it easily, but is it true? Does everlasting love exist? I think so …

The challenge for this week is to create a haibun themed “everlasting love” and of course there are a few rules … your haibun can have about 500 words (including the haiku) and your haiku has to follow the classical rules as there are e.g. the use of a seasonword and the 5-7-5 syllables count.

You can use the above image…
