Haiku to you Thursday: “Planet crumbs”

The moon’s full belly /

drags across the cold night sky, /

planet crumbs in tow.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Entwined”

Eyes entwined and deep, /

your face bears stoic witness /

to a mother’s heart.

Haiku to you Thursday: “White anticipation”

Snow exciting. /

Anticipation as white /

as the first small flakes.

Monday morning writing joke: “Smile”

There once was a writer in town /

Who frowned when the critic came around. /

Still, he tried one day /

To smile anyway: /

The day he saw the critic gagged and bound.

Photo Finish Friday: “Air Apparent”

A piece of the sky.

A piece of the sky.

The blue fedora

Try as he might;
try as he will
it became apparent
there was nothing for him still.
He worked to the bone
and then he worked beyond.
When one day somebody asked
he was already gone.
Air apparent to a world
that had passed him by.
With his blue fedora
he took off for the sky.
Maybe some day he’ll make it
up there to one of the stars.
Some say that’s far enough;
others say it’s much too far.
Maybe some day you’ll see him
chasing dreams or chasing a cat
the air apparent man
and his blue fedora hat.

–David E. Booker

The blue fedora man and the world he left behind.

The blue fedora man and the world he left behind.

In honor of National Hat Day.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Light”

We leave the light on— /

not to provide you guidance /

but to give us hope.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Defiance”

One daffodil blooms /

in mid-winter defiance. /

A fury of grace.
