“You know,” the spouse mused,

“This bird’s the double D-cup

The haiku challenge is over, but I am unable to dismantle the machine. Though it may look as if I am listening to you intently, I am probably just counting your syllables.

Haiku Catchoo: A Few More for the Road

Parenthood

At two, she clings fast

And then she is twenty-two,

calling once a week.

One for the Road

We’re pulling away

Laden with baggage and snacks

heading for elsewhere

While I Try to Work

The man next to me

thumps the bench and sings along

then reads this and leaves

Yesterday, The Daily Post issued a haiku challenge for the week:  five haikus in five days. Please be kind; I’m a little rusty. I haven’t written one of these since puberty.

Iceland

Volcanoes erupt

from bare rock like cone-shaped swords

A land with no trees
