Sitatara – You!
Relief from patriarchy
in all of humanity
Man: heal yourselves
Men visiting next
door, just being people –
it is so rare

unique haiku ~ yes, this is needed as even though it is 2014 ~ Patriarchal society is still very prevalent and impacts both men and women ~ Bravo ~ and Happy Day to you and peace ~ artmusedog and carol, xxx
Was a happy day too. Spent it creatively both indoors and out.
Jules is often mistaken for a man’s name. I am a female human. As my pen name – I just took it because it was the same pronunciation as Jewels…
JulesPaige = because words are like Jewels on a Page 🙂
Lucky you to have a frog living by your front door 😉
Frogs are a lucky symbol in many cultures.
Men…indeed being human 🙂
I knew you were female. Wonder what in my comment could’ve indicated that I thought you were male? Internet so slow that to get to your page will take a while. Didn’t see froggie tonight even though I was at my post to watch the sunset from my doorstep. Jewels on a page indeed. Much regard.
I believe I knew you knew…just making conversation 🙂
Often in writing much is left to interpretation.
Once someone thought I was insulting them because they read their own emotions into a piece I wrote.
Poetically yours ~J
I’ve done that. Ruefully realised not everything is about me. 🙂 One of the good things of Buddhism is the teaching of detachment. It’s hard to learn to keep one’s equilibrium. Your post about family not being close friends, or not listening is one example.
You were on a roll with your thoughts on this episode, and again feminism is looking over my shoulder. But that doesn’t matter we are living in a free world of thought and speech. Nice series of haiku …
Thanks for reading and commenting.
My pleasure Petru
I’d like to add that it’s through the efforts of feminists past and present that women enjoy free speech today. In some countries in the world it is, still, not the case.
Yes I know and I find that heartbreaking … women everywhere have to have rights to free speech
… and free from gender based violence, free from discrimination and on and on and on …
Speak again later.

I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
