Making faces

The Weekend Challenge: The Face

So many
objects
have a face.
Do you
see them
walking
through the shops.
I do
they are
making faces
they are there
inanimate faces
they are always looking
waiting
for you
making faces.

Ghostly water

The shocked incense burner

It’s in the feathers

I’m going to Su’s

Time to get ready for Su’s virtual afternoon tea

I shall add my bit from Australia for Su as she said “As it’s te wiki o te reo Māori (Māori language week) in Aotearoa New Zealand, I’m challenging myself to improve my te reo (language) skills wherever I can.”

Kia ora
“Whatever we call it though, there is ti in the pot; te mīhini kawhe (the coffee machine) is at the ready and although the kai (food) is simple, there’s plenty to fill your puku (stomach).”

Here is my contribution – I have used te mīhini kawhe and made a cup and also have mongamonga keke

So haere mai ki te hono atu ki a Su me etahi atu. Nau mai te katoa. So come along and join Su and everyone else. Everyone is welcome

Get through

Debbie’s quotation inspired image

Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.”
– Paulo Coelho
