Happy Ever Laughter

‘Once upon a time’

to ‘happy ever laughter’:

from start to the end.

A Haiku for you

This is ‘your’ haiku,

it’s precious, look after it,

it will serve you well.

“Cosy Tanka, anyone?”

“Keep away from me!
I am trying to stay free
of the cruel virus.”
“But, we just want to join you,
become a cosy Tanka.”

Herdog’s Blanket

“It’s ‘Herdog’s Blanket!”

“What is? What are you saying?”

“Just being silly.”


Do Butterflies Have Parties?

I saw a butterfly

in the sky

Mrs Pearsons Cottage (Unvisited)

I’ve never been there,

and I know not what

so if you are to visit,

is it safe?

I don’t know.

Are you as stray as a waif?

or, ‘alas! alack!’

Mrs Pearsons Cottage (Revisited)

by the name of Mrs Pearson;

that, is where she’s sure to go.
