Muito bom!

lelabugosi

Yes, unclebluebottle crash-landed, but all is well.........he's now sightseeing.........

Tatinha

Dobble sorry, I've mix up my tongue/fingers - translating the headline (originaly in japanese) from Portuguese to English - Unclebluebottle has landed on Fuji.

juneshone

Oh not Fuji, Noggin went there the other day it must have influenced the Squirt. Come back a bit silly man you are out of reach of the chairycopter

Tatinha

Thansk Mr Numbers for the splendid explanation. I know what you mean I'm a teacher.
Japan today's headline: "Unclebluebottle wa fujisan ni j?riku' (Unclebluebottle pousou no monte fuji)

lelabugosi

CALLING UNCLEBLUEBOTTLE........HEAD FOR JAPAN!..........

david06520

Juneee, it seems he has overshot and landed in far-flung Japan.

unclebluebottle

Houseycopter on its way..........somewhere..........

juneshone

profess away David, it is very interesting. I have loved poetry in all it's forms since I learned to read over 70 years ago. Moonlight in Vermont was written in 1944 by John Blackburn just makes it easy to remember the flow of a haiku by it. Mr P Squire's back among the living then!

patsquire

Oh! Godzilla was,
trashing Tokyo city,
when he fought King Kong.

david06520

I think it was a perfect response to the scene in the photograph, Tati!

The other thing a haiku should have is a reference to time. Whether a season, a time of day, or a moment in time, there should be a time element in classical haiku. The Basho haiku about the frog jumping into the old pond has the momentary time: marked by the sound of the splash in the water (mizu no oto: water its sound). That momentary time intersects with the eternal, moss-covered time implied by the opening words (furu ike: ancient pond).

So with Junee's Moonlight in Vermont, the moonlit scene must be at night, that is the time element.
That one also has a beautiful line running from the surface of the water (leaves like pennies on the surface) to the tree overhanging the water (a sycamore) to the moon which turns the leaves into mere shades below (moonlight).

Sorry, once a professor always a professor...

Tatinha

I'm not able to translate Matsuo Basho to English. I have a book in English with some of his poems. I remember that one tells about a frog and a pond. Maybe next time Mr. Numbers or Lela could do this favor to us, June.
Great poem, Lela. I don't get a word, but...Ok.

lelabugosi

Just that mine wasn't about nature, had 4 lines, and lots of syllables.......apart from that, a beautiful haiku.....

lelabugosi

And this was mine, in Japanese........sort of...........
Sukoshi no shi
no tame ni,
misuborashii,
arigat?gozaimashita

juneshone

oh I never thought of it as it would be in Japanese (presumably) that's really clever. Sorry Tati, me being know-all again, it goes with the job, well that's my excuse. I always think of Moonlight in Vermont - Pennies in a stream falling leaves a sycamore moonlight in Vermont.

david06520

Tati's was a real haiku, too:

furu ike ya (5)
kawazu tobikomu (7)
mizu no oto (5)

juneshone

Mr Squirts poem was a haiku which is to say it had three lines of 5-7-5 syllables and was about nature. Those are the rules

lelabugosi

Thank you,
Tatty,
for the little
poem..........

Tatinha

I think , June. He'll fight back like a sprinkle.

juneshone

isn't it time the Pee squirt was back from beyond beyond? what will you do if he squirts in your pond?

patsquire

Ahhhhh, Tati, what a wonderful element to introduce to our conversations!

Summer here again.
Music plays sweetly, drifting.
And life is renewed.

- - - unknown - - - (Well, semi-unknown. We know it wasn't written by me!)

Tatinha

No man, I suppose, appreciates its 'hidden charm', If so, whatever. Appreciation and shinning is for free. A Poem from very far East to Bugosi Square.
Old pond,
Leap-splash -
A frog.
Haiku by Basho.

lelabugosi

At night, the lack of lights tends to add to the statue's allure (and sex appeal).........In fact, on most evenings a crowd of older (well, elderly) ladies can be found shining their flashlights on this charismatic 'objet d'arty' in order to fully appreciate its 'hidden charms'.......unless, of course, it's Bingo night........

stacker

Anything Bugosian has a radiance all of its own.

pdevredis

Perhaps his glowing inner beauty is enough illumination, or the moonlight reflecting off his head, anyway.......

bookish

I don't see any solar lights that would highlight this beauty during evenings.

lelabugosi

Tatty-from-Brazil.........I see it as a small price to pay, for it allows people to fully appreciate the beauty of true art..........
thousands-of-cakes........I shall send you one, in the 'XL' size (large all round)........(or all round and large).......

cakes1947

Delightful!! I would love to have one for my back yard overlooking the water but in a full size (meaning between 5 - 6 feet tall). Thanks Lela!! :))))
(time, 1:28)

lelabugosi

A true-blooded Bugosi, through and through...............

Tatinha

Poor lela, standing long hours of twenty minutes each, on one foot, splitting water from his right ear, pretending to be from his mouth with or within-a- wonderful purpose of evolving, progressing and being young.
Youth fountain!

patsquire

Good to know, although maybe this is CLOSER to reality:

lelabugosi

Rest assured, Heidi-of-the-half-beard, I could not keep this position for more than twenty minutes at a time....and it is plain to see that there is no pole in this picture..........also, as well, too - how could I be typing this comment.......unless of course, this isn't me at all.........
Mr.Squirt.......I would not DREAM of altering a picture.........

patsquire

You tell him, droopy-watches! But what is this "photoshopping" of which you speak? Do you mean that.......you don't mean that.......people.......can actually change photos around so they're actually not actual real actuality????? That would be dishonest! Deceptive! Chicanery!

Surreal_Heidi

How can we be sure that this isn't the REAL you, lela? For all we know, the other photos of you could all be photoshopped. It's not unheard of, you know.

patsquire

HAHAHAHAHAHA! And if the squeezing doesn't work well enough, I am not entirely unprepared. I HAVE MY DISSECTING KIT WITH ME!!!!!

Hippolytus

H-E-E-E-L-P!.................The Squirt is squeezing my body for water!..................

lelabugosi

Robbostrich-down-under.............When I was posing for this BEAUTIFUL SCULPTURE, I can assure you that passing crows were not in the least bit scared......they plastered me with "gifts".........
Mr.Le-Squirt.........Press on.......Press on........

juneshone

Oh dear no water that's bad, maybe we could arrange for you to do your survey in the chairycopter then you would be back home with us in no time at all. do be careful, I am off to my lair now so can't be of any help. good night all

patsquire

OMG! You're right, Big R. Ain't no crows around this ugly dude!

Robbos

OMG!
Put's a new name to the meaning "Scarecrow":)

patsquire

I lust for water . . . . . it is so dry out here in the barren wastelands of Nether-Nether-Bonga!

I have, of course, my new iMac-wrist-mini-pod with satellite feed, so as Hippolytus and I trek, or rather bike-trek this vast desert I made my regular visit to Bugosiland and discovered this depiction of lush, green swampiness. It has ignited a fever, a fervor, a LUST FOR WATER.

MUST.....FIND.....WATER!!! WATER.....Water.....water.....wa.....w.................

(I forgot my canteen.) (I wonder if Hippolytus brought one.) (I wonder how much water is in Hippolytus!) (If I can get a drink of water I'll text you my progress report, Juneee.)

juneshone

yes Mr Squirt, I am awaiting my first editorial from you I was rather relying on it for the morning edition but my shift will be over in 20 minutes

lelabugosi

You need to cut round them all with a jig-saw......Hee-Hee!.....
Anyway, aren't you supposed to be in the wilderness?..........

patsquire

Defect report: A lot of these puzzle-within-a-puzzle pieces are already stuck together and will not come apart!

lelabugosi

Yes, dancing-pecan........we sell this model and an 'adult model' for people with no taste....I mean, refined taste........
Juneee........as I explained a few months ago, while I was modelling for the statue I fell over 16 times on the first day,.......the next day they fixed my body to a pole, and all was well in the pond - however I had to close my mouth as I was sick of swallowing flies, and this led to the artist sticking a tube through my cheek...........

lelabugosi

Initially, there were a couple of technical difficulties, and workmen did have to plug a leak 'down below'.........
The 'water' is actually frog-pee, which I recycle through my mouth.....all very 'green' as it goes back in the pond........

juneshone

looks to me as if the water is coming out of his ear

jignut

Will they be selling replicas in the Bugosi Square Gift Shop? I must have one of these for my pond to keep the raccoons away.

chickiemama

Well, I'm glad to see the water is only coming out of the mouth. It is an amazing fountain!
