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.”


Lockdown Diary

Lockdown, Day 1

Diary entry:

Stocked up with lots of food,

should be a doddle.

Lockdown, Day 2

Diary entry:

Ran out of chocolate eggs,

damn this cruel lockdown.

Lockdown, Day 153

Diary entry:

I ate my left foot, today;

it was less than nice.

Lockdown, Day 413

Diary entry:

just a whoosh of tumbleweed,

and all blank pages

Haiku? Myth or fact?

Just a few small words put in a certain order can make a haiku.

(as exampled below)

Just a few small words

put in a certain order

can make a haiku.

My Life Haiku

To write on my life,

in seventeen syllables,

just cannot be done.

A haiku series,

maybe that is the answer –

I’ll try it and see.

No, that didn’t work,

it soon became quite boring,

in fact, tedious.

So, I’ll stick to one,

keep it simple, as they say –

whoever ‘they’ are.

My life? Ongoing,

doing this and some of that,

breathing in and out;

taking each day in its turn,

writing Haikus and Tankus.
