Mundane Monday #158: all of the squares

Welcome to Mundane Monday #158, today’s theme is “all of the squares”. That is from an AA Milne poem called Lines and Squares:

Whenever I walk in a London street,
I’m ever so careful to watch my feet;
And I keep in the squares,
And the masses of bears,
Who wait at the corners all ready to eat
The sillies who tread on the lines of the street
Go back to their lairs,
And I say to them, “Bears,
Just look how I’m walking in all the squares!”

Mundane Monday is an exercise in joy for me: look for a photograph to of something ordinary that also is arresting or brings up something like the above poem. Many thanks again to Trablogger for letting me continue the prompts. Here are his directions and suggestions for better shots: https://trablogger.com/better-your-photography-before-the-mundane-monday/. If you have a photograph on the prompt, link to this and next week I will list yours! Also, tell me if I miss anyone.

Guide to determining if you are constantly being mauled by bears

This is for Ronovan’s weekly haiku prompt. The words this week are guide and mad.

Beloved guide me
through red mad anger open
heart to shores of love

The picture is my son and daughter on the shore of Lake Crescent, Washington in 2004. We stopped driving for a rest. My son has just skipped a rock and I love the curve of his body and physical joy expressed. He’s trying to influence what the rock does with his body language. How can we all stay that fluid and joyful?
