Haiku: Bears Have the Right Idea for Emma

And this should be the last of the Holiday Haikus. Emma asked for “bear(s)” so I hope that this works for her. Happy holidays to all and sundry!

Bears Have The Right Idea
Some large predators
hibernate during winter
to avoid the mall

Haiku: Snow for JM

Here’s the next holiday haiku. This one is for my friend JM who asked for “Snow.” I hope that this works for her. (I took the photo below when I was on my way through Yosemite to get out the other side.)

Delicate crystals
used for skiing and snowmen
Oh. And snowballs. Duck!

Haiku: Frisbee for nagasasu

The request for this Haiku was “Chocolate! Or cats.” So…I combined them. Hope that it works. Of course, it also comes with a bonus video for a bit more added value/explanation.

Tribble-purred baby

Haiku: And We Dance for Labelleizzy

Okay. Here at last is the Haiku Xmas gift for Labelleizzy, complete with a video of one of my favorite dances. I hope you like it!

And We Dance
feet translate thunder
skirts flare, partners intertwine
hold the final pose

Haiku: Autumn Wedding

(An Xmas gift for my evil twin)

Autumn Wedding
Fiery leaves frame
the young pumpkin bearer, as
outside the mist lifts

It is difficult

Haiku Week: Friday

This just in:

A film angers me so much
I tell everyone

Okay. It wasn’t all of Red Riding Hood that pissed me off. But…really? They should have just made a film out of Scarlet Moon. RRH included a stereotype of a character that did something that angered me so much I almost saw red for a minute. But, hey, at least Michael Shanks got some work. (No, he didn’t play the angering character. I was just happy to see him, even if they didn’t utilize his acting skills very much.) Growl.

Haiku Week: Thursday

Today’s haiku asks a question:

Have you ever felt
that in our swift rush forward
there’s something we’ve lost?

Haiku Week: Wednesday

It’s Wednesday, but…

An Apology

No haiku today.
Sorry. I got writer’s block.
My cat said he’d help.

By Frisbee:

This laundry is warm.
Do not move my fuzzy thing!
Fear my tooth of wrath.

(Um…thanks for the help there, Fris.)

Haiku Week: Tuesday

Today’s haiku is based on true events. Truefax.


So, I’m the sane one?
Honestly, that’s what she said.
Please make note of it.

Bonus Haiku:

Mood Lifter

Cider with dinner
“Miss, may I see your I.D.?”
And my husband laughed.
