Photo finish Friday: “Time’s up”

The spring has sprung Savings Time has fell and here comes idiocy cold as hell.

The spring has sprung
Savings Time has fell
and here comes idiocy
cold as hell.

Daylight Savings Time

by David E. Booker

Time to lose an hour

What else can I say?

It’s coming March 8th,

Early A-M that day.

Clocks will spring forward

Even though I may not.

An hour will disappear

But in my body, not forgot.

Charge ahead we must

Into this time-warped fray.

It is a stupid thing

to give an hour away.

‘Tis a great shenanigan

A political cluster duck

That has led us to this day

With which we now are stuck.

So when you go to vote

Remember who took away

This hour of sleep or fun,

And all without any pay.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Drip”

Snow melts: drip, drip, drip. /

Ice rattles down the gutter. /

Slowly spring creeps in.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Know”

“Do you know the truth?” /

the street corner preacher asks. /

I point to the curb.

Random act of poetry: “Knitted beard”

The knitted beard.

The knitted beard.

O’ knitted beard
you feel so weird
strapped up against my face.

My neighbors point,
get their noses out of joint,
and say I’m out-of-place.

I’m a circus freak
but cold air can’t leak
up onto my chin.

When warm weather hits
I’ll remove this mitt
and be clean-shaven again.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Watch”

I watch you sleeping /

the drugs doing all I can’t — /

except loving you.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Soft shell”

I move your blanket. /

The soft shell against night’s chill /

has exposed your skin.
