Haiku: Breakfast of Amateurs

Eggs over easy
The flipping an act of faith
Sometime yokes on me

Haiku-esque: Old Time Wisdom

Fleeing icy cold
Sneaked through leaky window cracks
Hoped to share my warmth

Small black flying specks
Orbit space around lamplight
Whizzing past my book

Who are my strange guests?
I am told they are fruit flies
Given remedy

Novel entrapment
Apple cider vinegar
Should snare invaders

Though it does not work
I find the scent delicious
I’ll settle for that

In Response to Daily Prompt: Profusion

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

Haiku: Canine Roomba

Mother’s Day dinner
Grandma’s plate took a tumble
Inelegant scene

Whistled to clean up
Max licked up crumbs with gusto
Trusty pre-tech tool

Haiku: Horse Behind the Cart

I once knew a child
Who thought leaves blowing wildly
Created the wind.

Now a days people
Speak ideas and opinions
And create hot air.
