Haiku to you Thursday: “Hum”

Hum and chirp: dawn song. /

Bang and warble: midday refrain. /

Sigh and buzz: dusk coda.

Haiku to you Thursday: “See tomorrow”

To see tomorrow /

you must first have heart and be /

today’s adventure.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Spring rose”

The seas of passion /

and the winds of desire /

welcome a Spring rose.

Oh, Mom

[Editor’s note: inspired by a neighbor’s actual event, as reported on Facebook. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers reading this.]

Oh, Mom,
I did it again, like when I was ten
And then, in the middle of the night
In panic and fright I committed the sin
Of turning your bedding off-white.

Oh, Mom,
I was queasy then and I am again,
And once more I stand at your door.
Too much to drink, this time I think.
I should’ve stopped instead of saying, “More.”

Oh, Mom,
As I now look in, the light is very thin.
I hear the roar of a brain-jarring snore.
Is that you or Dad? Oh, my achy breaky head.
I pitch in too soon, onto the bed — ka-boom!

Oh, Mom,
I will try again. Oh, where to begin?
I did not mean to do or repeat anew,
But my head went in, like when I was ten,
And turned white into red, white, and “Ouuh!”

Oh, Mom,
I did it again, like I did back then,
When, in the middle of the night,
In panic and fright I committed the sin
Of turning your bedding off-white.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Chasing Jupiter”

Full moon and planet, /

divers to the horizon. /

Chasing Jupiter.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Spring cleaning”

Broom in the corner; /

cobwebs cling to the handle. /

Spring cleaning begins.

Clinging to the handle.

Clinging to the handle.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Message scent”

Blooms in Spring’s desires. /

Companion to construction. /

Scent not of flowers.

A pot to "plant" in.

A pot to “plant” in.
