  1. That’s a gorgeous, surprising haiku!

  2. Such a wonderful surprise 🙂

  3. same asociation today… when i read the title, a scarecrow blinked in front of my eyes

  4. tis the season to shine!

  5. How sweet this image is!

  6. The star on the jacket scare me.. Reminds of a history where a yellow star would symbolize a Jew…

  7. Marvelous image & great writing, teacherman. I have a piece coming out tomorrow that features a scarecrow. We’re on the same vibe, I guess. Salute.

  8. oh how sweet; what is Christmas without your star;

    my son and my grand baby visited last night, we put decorations on a tiny table top tree, i put some silver tinsel at the top, and stood back to admire, she sharply asked her father Where is the star? so he had to make her one and remove my silver tinsel and place it at the top

    Happy Holidays

    much love…

  9. Interesting post. Old strawhead rules the garden.

  10. I am about to make a star over here… so the light knows the exact place to shine… in our hearts, just like your scarecrow (who doesn’t scare me one bit!)!

  11. Sweet. And perhaps a new sheriff in town????

  12. some days
    i feel like straw head
    with or without star:)
