OK, where's Karl been. Why hasn't he published this week's haiku winner? Well he's been off, testifying at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. For senate bill 218. (the Governor's I want to be the next president, gun grab) According to the Sergeant at Arms of the Senate. Today was the first time in Maryland history, the building was close to admittance by the fire Marshall, because of the number of people attending to oppose a bill. Thanks to all who attended. If we keep it up, we can beat Governor O'Malley's gun grab. And ultimately shut down the agenda of the Panderer in Chief on a national level.
That said, on to important stuff. Thank you all for the find turnout. I know the topic was broad, it was by design. Just to see what you folks would come up with. You certainly didn't disappoint. Your Haiku's were broad in spectrum, thoughtful, and very entertaining.
Serendipity's Para-cord haiku made me smile and laugh. In the ranks of my family at large. There are active duty military, FBI special agents, U.S. marshals and folks with the other agency affiliations. What do they have in common? Para-cord, belts, bracelets and accessories. When I comment to them about it. The girls, they get it. But the guys, don't understand my comments about Macrame. Anyway yes the uses are endless. Unless the display openly marks you.
Becca's Ties that bind. Reminds us of the importance of holding family tight. And her second the importance of honesty.
Moi's Jump rope, I have to say it until your last line, I was thinking of something else. Yet Fishy was right, it had a great rhythm.
Fishy sure would like to see the kite on the other end of that tale.
Czar, man you hit that one right.
Chicokry's spider's web remind us all of the beauty of nature. Particularly with the fall of the morning dew.
Plus giving us one of the best band names, I've heard in a longtime.
Fleur's marionette reminds us all who've been in the position, how it feels to be the front person.
Serendipity again your cat haiku was close to home. As we have one who tows her string around with her. I call her Dingbat.
Fishy a weapon perhaps, walking the dog for sure.
Aunty Belle Yo Yo is a neat haiku and a most entertaining link. For your second, I never pictured you as a gamer. Is there something you should tell us?
And finally CoreyJoe's ode to the fun physics of childhood. Let's hope it stays a child's game.
So now we need to pick a winner. Well originally I said pull at my heartstrings. Czar did it with his:
"I Know You, Rider":
Twenty-nine strings blistering.
Bluegrass? Rock and roll.
Sir, the stage is yours. I look forward your next week's topic. Thank you all for playing this week.
