Five For Autumn


an autumn haiku
should be cool, crisp and orange
like me'n my new clogs

*

the geese are making
(and who can really blame them...)
a hasty retreat

*

winter is peeking
in at the bedroom window
as nights get cooler

*

harvest is complete
which means I pulled the carrots
lame garden this year

*

the snow is melting
it feels just like spring, only
it is September...

A New Haiku

                                                             

                             A QUAINT GAZEBO
                 AND WAVY MORPHING JINX ARE
                            A BIG POINT HAIKU

Love Day



It need not be said
That you are my Valentine
Some loves are just known

It Progresses

To the stuffed head was added a cough
And I feel most decidedly *off*
You may joke, as you please,
But I'll sputter and wheeze,
So Daaahling, pray don't make me L-aw-ph.

Oh, Yeah. Merry Christmas.

I think that I'm ready for Christmas,
I've done all the things I should do...
And so, with impeccable timing,
I've caught me a Christmas Break Flu.

I'm shuffling around in pajamas,
I'm aching, and fevered, it's true.
My nose is much redder than Rudolph's
As I cough, sneeze and wipe what I blew.

I feel like I just did this last year-
I've got very strong "deja vu"...
There's way better Christmas traditions,
Than wrapping things up with the flu.

I briefly considered the arctic
Surely the bugs there are few!
But I read that ice doesn't kill microbes,
So there's just no escaping the flu.

I will wish you a bright Merry Christmas,
And the Happiest of Years that are New
But if you respect my condition,
Keep it down, while I'm nursing my flu.

Get Lost Mosquitoes

I may have it all wrong, but
Nobody likes you.

Out With The Old...

       fill a cup and drink
cheers to twenty-seventeen
    the bar's been set low
