A Breezy Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

Here’s this week’s heap of haikus:

The ocean so vast,
and the waves so persistent …
I’ll swim tomorrow.

Mysteries may end
while plot-lines stay unresolved.
The moon hides in clouds.

Fitful nights will pass.
Sleep will overtake sadness.
A new day will dawn.

When his heart’s desire

bitch-slapped his raison d’être,

he felt quite confused.

If you struggle to

build ships in bottles, why not

get bigger bottles?

tanka haiku:

Today, our thoughts blend,
into philosophical
smoothies. They’re zombies.

  How do brand new thoughts arise
  when old thoughts refuse to die?

A sliver of moon,
slicing through the clouds, restless
shadows roam the fields.

The filthy windshield
gave a sepia toned view
of my ride to work.


Tanka haiku:

If elevators
stood still, then buildings would go
up and down. Cool, huh?

  A town’s fun could be measured

  by skyline percolation.

haiku quintet:

I used to enjoy

anonymous wanderings

when on vacation.

I would quietly

explore towns I visited,

as if I lived there.

now, due to age and

chronic illness, I can not

blend into backgrounds.

Ev’ry where I go

I am noticed, observed and

offered assistance.

I miss the old days

and the anonimity

which showed me new worlds.

Paradise or Swamp?

Likely civilization

will rise from the swamp.

When you fall in love,
it will be voracious. Hearts
never have enough.


Sorry, for the small heap this week.  More next week.

    I enjoy this.

    I haven’t seen any posting from Richard. I hope everything is going OK with him. He should have mastered his new computer by now. I hope I didn’t give him bad advice that didn’t work for him. Windows 8 is so different from what we are used to.
