Friday on Vacation with the Haikulodeon

 

Here’s this week’s heap of haikus … Because I’m on vacation, I’ve included some “Best of” haikus to round out the heap … so to speak.

 

Skies with quiet clouds,
the boardwalk sparsely peopled,
old folks lost in thought.

 

————————-

 

Mechanized milk maids,

are a sure sign of progress,

to all but the cows.

—————————

 

His flights of fancy,

were of little consequence,

in her scheme of things.

 

—————————-

An eager puppy,

tail wagging, strains at his leash.

So many new friends!

 

—————————-

 

Complicated thoughts,

can give a haiku texture,

but not more insight.

 

———————————-

 

Deep in the forest,

patches of stippled sunlight,

warm a leaf-strewn trail.

———————————–

 

A garden pathway,

lined with purple violets,

absorbs all sadness.

 

—————————————

 

In the drainpipe’s curve,

a nest of twigs holds two eggs

the true joy of Spring.

 

——————————

 

Hot and humid morn,

washed hair doesn’t want to dry,

so she wears a cap.

 

————————————-

 

 A plausible scheme
 might come to fruition if
 the timing is right.

 

—————————-

 

 I drove through the night
 to get to your front door and
 beg you to be mine.

 

——————————–

 

Sitting on the porch,
looking at the ocean, I
watch the seagulls play.
 

———————————–

 

When my mind escapes
from thoughts that weigh it down, it
soars above the clouds.
 

——————————

 

What’s more exhausting
 than having unlimited
 opportunities?

 

——————————-

 

tanka haiku:

Reading three month old
magazines happens only
when on vacation …

or when you are sitting in
your new doctor’s waiting room.

 

——————————————

 

A bowl of chili
with cheddar cheese on top … for
lunch!! Ahh, vacation!

 

———————————-

 

Maples, Elms and Oaks
burst with yellow, red and orange,
the forest ablaze!

 

————————————–
