Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Haiku: Taking Leave

I’m off to the beach
With my family galore
Weather report rain

A wet week in store
We will have fun just the same
No need for sunscreen

Haiku: Perspective

Morning sun’s first rays
Slanting westward golden beams
Brightening the day

Evening finds sun gleaming
Eastward on the other hand
Brilliant curtain fall

My window looks south
Sitting sideways to the sun
Arching daily route

Haiku: Best Part of Waking Up

Summer dawning sounds
Birds begin the melody
Background locusts buzz

Whistling kettle shrills
Morning paper lands with thud
Coffee time complete

Haiku: Pesky Nuisances

Pests have legs and crawl
Others meant to fly have wings
Bad ones bite and sting

But the worst of all
Can be found in human forms
Too many to list

Daily Prompt: Pest

Bright autumn colors
Wait beneath summer’s green leaves
Jack Frost’s grand surprise

Dark tresses of youth
Age transforming to silver
Alchemy’s magic

Haiku: Time Intractable

Fiddling on his roof
Puzzled amidst changing times
Tevye’s words still ring true

Can things stay the same
Honoring past treasured ways
Moving future-wise?

Roots traditional
Most beloved and revered
Bear new fruits in time

Daily Prompt: Tradition

Optimist in me
Battling aging’s hard knocks
Cock-eyed after all

Haiku: Musical Chairs

Sixty years ago
No spring chicken even then
Chair gifted to me

Covering threadbare
Reupholstered more than once
Stories chair could tell

Time to spruce things up
Brought in classy new arm-chair
Taking pride of place

Early showing wear
Became sad embarrassment
I’m watching for sales

Meanwhile my old chair
Stalwart in simplicity
Quietly bides its time.

Porcupines, poets
Quills adept hurling sharp barbs
