Late Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

Here’s this week’s heap of haikus:

————————–

Emerging shadows,
late on Friday afternoon,
make me fear nightfall.

 

—————————-

 

Want to have some lunch?
It’s okay, it’s on me … (The
waitress tripped – It was.)
—————————————
Driving down the road,
looking for the right exit.
Billboards distract me.
—————————————–
Stuck in a bad place?
Ya can’t get out of a jam?
Grab your dancin’ shoes.
———————————————–
 He has a smart phone,
but a stupid housekeeper.
So things evened out.
——————————————
tanka haiku: When you’re young and strong,
you don’t believe there will be
ravages of Time.But as you age, you will learn
how vulnerable you are.
———————————————
Like a garden rose,
the nurse blossomed in the Spring …
then pricked my finger.
—————————————————
Memorized poems
dwell in our heads, waiting to
re-inspire us.
——————————————
His leather briefcase
was left in a Greek diner
on Twenty-third Street.
———————————————
A sterile house with
antiseptic anterooms,
only breeds uncles.
——————————————–
I think he enjoyed
being silly more, when she
was dead serious.
———————————————
double haiku: This physical realm,
lets spiritual beings,
experience pain.Live and you’ll know pain;
All lessons in Life derive
from this single fact.

My Friend’s response:

 Other POVku:

I think life is Joy.
Pain is there to remind us
not to forget Joy.

Once you forget Joy,
Regis won’t show up either.
THEN where will you be?

My response:

Agreed; Life is joy.
But Joy’s not absence of pain,
It’s inhaling God.
My Friend’s response:
No, my friend, you’re wrong!
Joy IS the absence of pain.
Because G!d is Joy! 
We are born as G!ds.
Then pain interferes, somehow.
Lose pain, regain Joy!
My response:
You feel G!ddy?
In this city, you’re G!ddy,
And fined … for your pains.
My friends’s response:
Nooo, if you’re G!ddy,
You pretend to be crazy,
and get off scot-free.

My response:

Well, can’t argue that.
G!ddy is as G!ddy does.
Why? G!d only knows.
——————————————–
The kitten’s whiskers
brushed across the old man’s face,
making him giggle.
——————————————-
He crosses the street,
nonchalantly dodging cars,
but bicycles? BAM!
