Blank Holiday Haiku (Haiku in the plural)

No it is not blank;

there are many words writ here;

but, not that much sense.

.

So, perhaps, write more

than just one single haiku,

will two haiku do?

.

Or is three enough;

not that there is much content,

just a lot of fluff.

Like in the settee,

which is not quite relevant;

but, is a true fact.

.

Should these haiku rhyme?

Perhaps I should have prepared

before I started.

.

Or is this just a

Stream-of-Consciousness haiku,

that goes where it wants?

.

So many questions –

and so few answers at all –

typical Graeme.

.

Anyway, my friend,

it’s not so blank now is it,

but, just as silly.

.

And, no, it won’t rhyme;

time after time I’ve told you,

my haiku don’t do

what I want them to.

Writing Haiku doesn’t keep one warm when it is tres cold at the Train Station – I know!

At the train station
Waiting for the Eastleigh train
To take me to work.

It is cold, today;
But, it will warm up later;
Then it will be hot.

It is a ‘Monday!’
The first day of my work week;
As it starts again.

By this time Friday
I will have almost finished
And the week near done.

But, not quite there yet;
Still here on a Monday morn,
With lots yet to go.
