Haiku: Mixed Blessings

My friend died last week
Departure unexpected
Legacy breathes on

Glory and heartbreak
Alike make new beginnings
Odd gifts to embrace

Daily Prompt – Expect

On The Occasion of James’ Sixteenth Birthday

Joyous celebration of life in your very being
A spark of creation I hold dear
Making me proud
Energy abundant
Strutting in the Marching Band

Helping me fix Eggs Benedict
Always fun to be with
Running to give me a surprise hug
Tuesday in the parking lot

I LOVE YOU

Haiku: Fashion Show

Pink stripes this morning
Two strands adorning the sky
Autumn finery

Haiku: Census Update

Geese now number nine
Snacking in the vacant lot
Honked as I walked by

Senryu: A Revelation

Charmed by the brief form
Inspired by life’s happenings
Wrote many Haiku

Then I awoke to
Expanded definition –
A “human” Haiku

Perfect description
Poetry I’ve been writing
Instead is Senryu.

With appreciation to Colleen Chesebro who teaches me good things

Haiku: Third Time a Charm

New modem required
So said cable company
It came in the mail

Also cable box.
Cable guy to the rescue
My problems were small

Three long hours passed
He pronounced all in good shape –
Until the next day

When it became clear
Impossible to record
Why have a TV?

Different guy sent
Seems original box wrong
Installed another

Now I could record.
Problems solved I watched TV
Then after four days

No picture on screen.
Third guy came with his tool box
Things were looking up.

He wasted no time
Found ancient cable splitter
Replaced it. Voila!

With my apologies to the traditional Haiku form
