Tbc

Dr P: And before you say it, I was talking about the stiff; and not Dr 1.

Dr 1: Do we know yet who the stiff was?

Some Queueing Haikus (four or more – I’m not quite sure) Count them and you’ll see!

Queuing Haikus (suggested by CFS) by Graeme Sandford

No. 1

Dad? Are we there yet?”

Me: “Nearly; it’s not far now”

I lied; Then she cried.

-/-

No. 2

The heater it worked;

Hot air streaming out at me

as the engine boiled.

-/-

No. 3 (remembering I am in a long traffic queue driving in a car!)

A serene calm fell;

All around me there was peace –

As I fell asleep.

-/-

and follow it with another idea for a haiku that I have just had, entitled:

-/-

When the time I Have To Write Poetry is Short- I will write Haikus by Graeme Sandford

Which is also called (by me) the ‘Title Haikuby Graeme Sandford

Title Haiku: is its also title;

But, this is is not the haiku that you were expecting:

That was in the title itself.

Such fun to play with a format or bend the rules a little. I am always up for having a playful go at tweaking my words to give added depth or meaning – or just because I am a cheeky type!

Seventeen syllables is a little short for some – it’s like being served up a polo mint (other mints are avilable) instead of the family roast you were expecting (just an example).

EEP!

Eep!

It’s 2014 and ‘I’ am commemorating ‘Eep!’

Look before you leap

As still waters run deep

Swear words go bleepity-bleep

Climb the paths upon mountains steep

Who knows what is out there for you – take a Peep

you can only sow from what you reap (and don’t fear the reaper)

When in bed and counting sheep / Pray the Lord your soul to keep

Roadrunner and his immortal ‘Beep! Beep!’

And our little lives (and this poem) are ended with a sleep

(zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
