  1. I must admit my ignorance; I don’t “get” the faces of death. However, I find it interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  2. I always look forward to seeing what you will share, but this is a weird one to me.

  3. I do find the “Day of the Dead” celebration a little unsettling, but I do like the artwork.

  4. Such a lot of work into something….a little scary…very strange but I appreciate the work in it. I also appreciate you sharing the mural with us.
    I know there’s a meaning behind the grimness that we don’t know. Other countries sometimes have this kind of thing that, unless we know the meaning behind it, it frightens us.

      Thank you, BJ. The “strange” and “foreign” always seem to be a bit intimidating, don’t they?

  5. Very strong haiku, in my humble opinion.

  6. There is so much death in life!

  7. Wonderful post. Certainly thought provoking. Enjoy your week.

  8. This looks like some celebratory art of the Mexicans’ Day of the Dead to me. Colourful and interesting.

  9. What a powerful haiku and that mural is a huge chapter of meanings. Life is not without death, death cannot exist without life, but I think one can be dead before death.

  10. I suspect I die from time to time. I come back to life when great haiku like yours are penned. Then I happily get back to my knitting.

  11. Weird but very interesting mural.

  12. My daughter is in Mexico to celebrate the day of the dead.

  13. You can’t have one without the other can you…well put.
