Oops … Out of Order – Last week’s heap of haikus – 4-27-2012


Here’s this week’s heap of haikus: 
“Thou and I are too
wise to woo peaceably.” (And
so, they sparred with words.)

(Happy 448th Birthday this past week, William Shakespeare.)

He had tried so hard
to always do what was right,
there was nothing left.

At the Dew Drop Inn,
the dude dropped out; he logged in,
but then he passed out.

Under the table
is no place to be when your
boss takes you to lunch.
haiku re-dux: Deep in the forest,
patches of stippled sunlight,
warm a leaf-strewn trail.
When he needed help,
he knew who to call, and who
didn’t want to know.
Actor heard praying
while crossing Shubert Alley;
“God, the first act sucks.”
tanka haiku: There is a sad fear
that’s buried deep in our hearts;
that no love will last.

So we pray that Time’s not cruel
and our memories won’t fade.

Flowery bouquets,
made the room seem less dreary.
and offset her tears.
haiku: Hiding in the field,
he overheard ev’rything,
then figured things out.
haiku: There are no rainbows
in a world of absolutes,
only black or white.
haiku: Best be kind to him.
While he poses no threat, he
makes a good ally.
We’re not bound to earth
when our lives are stuck in mud
for our hopes still soar.
There’s a twilight time
between dusk and eve’ning that
nurtures reflection.
haiku re-dux: At the sky’s edges,
mountaintops still pierce the clouds,
to peek at heaven.
To impress his ‘girl’,
the young man sent the small stone
skimming ‘cross the lake.
tanka haiku: You can’t hold back Love,
it will gush forth from your heart
and spurt through your eyes
   like … adoring laser beams.
   (So, be careful where you aim.)
(Note: I know this is a really bad haiku, but its ludicrous images made me laugh.  Unfortunately some of my friends on Facebook didn’t get the joke and thought I had lost my mind or at the very least, my ability to write haikus. What can I say? Sometimes stupid things make me laugh.)
