Good evening, well here we are another haiku Monday has come and gone. Time to pick a winner.
First bit of a recap:
Boxer jumped in first with:
Even as she sleeps
a thousand thoughts and feelings
are etched in her face
Not sure whether she's talking about herself or Coco either way I like this one.
Duck—here come her hands!"
Sorry! Mute without them. Blame
Her visual made it fit perfectly.
Then Czar popped in with:
Pooch’s extreme itch:
“Try expressing anal glands?”
Maybe you . . . Not me.
And thankfully he didn't post a visual.
Attempts fail: Quick jolt
desire reveals vocab lapse.
“Expresso”? Next, please.
Yes sir, coffee before speech can often be prudent.
Curmudgeon was next with:
Chill wind and headaches
Icy cold, fingers frozen
Pain wrinkles my face
Thank you DMV
Triplets are in my future
or so I appear.
Both expressions we all likely know well. Perhaps not the folks from Florida. If you haven't had a chance to stop by Curmudgeons, you should. He's quite an entertaining writer.
Serendipity gave us:
As free as a bird;
More than just an expression,
Molly’s vole dance is pure joy.
A dog’s morning play.
The visual for Molly's dance was indeed pure joy.
Fleur's haiku was:
Geisha's winter face.
Frozen lake with life beneath
cracks under his kiss.
How you manage to find those Geisha's, I don't know, yet the comedic relief was perfect.
Pam entered with:
The look on his face
did not match with what he said.
Expression of love:
tiny boy child sees grammy
and smiles, her heart melts.
Not at all weak attempts. The kireji in the last line of your first one was well done and anyone who's seen the face of Caleb knows exactly the sentiment of your second.
Troll interrupted his vacation to give us a front row seat to what has become national news:
All they should say is:
"Gentlemen, Start your engines!".
Moochelle gave speeches.
You really have to wonder, what they were thinking. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to participate.
Fishy gave us:
Hitchin' his britches,
straw chewin' sloucher whistles...
Blam! Killed in one look
An ode to the movie cowboy or perhaps the radio cowboy. As one passed in a very similar fashion on Gunsmoke, Sunday night on the radio.
K9 presented two:
expression: duck lips kissing
in bathroom mirror
The first one I understood immediately, the second I have yet to figure out. Perhaps an inside joke between she and Moi.
Foam serenaded us with:
Sublime sounds caress...
A riveted audience.
Bach's St. John Passion
Bach's beautiful expression of his faith. Give it a listen you won't be sorry.
Aunty Belle being cryptic as she can be at times gave us the mathematical question:
XY + 2X?
May or December it's still
To which I have to answer. Perhaps, yet I would enter the equation. K+D=4. I particularly enjoyed the Einstein visual.
And finally Corey Joe. Don't worry, you're worth waiting for. She gave us:
Cookies & milk gone.
The presents under the tree.
Children squeal: Pure Joy.
The expression of children's faces on Christmas morn. She must have the children, we all like to think about.
So now you're thinking where is he going with all this. Well I'll tell you. Thank you all for playing this week. Boxer and Foam your runner's this week. And Foam thank you, I had not heard the entire piece before now, I have because of you.
Serendipity, you win it this week with Redtail, Your expression of freedom of flight is most appealing. So grab your badge and post it proudly.
Please let us know if you will host and your topic for next week. A question to the collective, should the next contest be postponed due to the holiday weekend?
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
