Rononvan's Weekly Haiku Challenge

The Fowls Buttocks…

When I saw Ronovan’s prompt for this weeks’ haiku ‘ Breeze & Blow’  an immediate chuckle escaped my lips. My mind automatically transported itself to an Igbo adage that is often used back home.

The adage signifies a general truth that whatever is hidden will certainly come to light with time.

We’ve got a certain silly saying that;

when the steady breeze blows

we will see the fowls exposed buttock.

  1. I vote that this wonderful phrase be immediately adopted into Standard English, be taught in all our UK schools, and be used at least once a week by our top parliamentary correspondents on television news broadcasts.
    Can’t wait for an appropriate opportunity to slip this into conversation myself.
    How I love expressive language 😊 Hope you have some more gems like this.

  2. Hi Jackie,

    Lol… I agree with you “When breeze blow, fowl yansh go open” is a most apt caption for that photograph. XD

    Indeed, what’s done in the dark will eventually be exposed for the truth to prevail.

    I haven’t been here in so long, missed your delightful content. Ah, I ought shake off this lazy blogger funk.


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
