Haiku Times Eight

Striving Poet's Corner

Source

Voting


Some do, and some don't.

Their reasons are each their own.

Get them out to vote.


Sunshine


Check the window first.

Sun today or gray? Hope for sun.

Makes each day the best.


Exhaust


Cars, trucks give it out.

And there are some days and nights

When I'm just exhaust


Johnny On The Spot®


When you've got to go,

Consideration means that

relief is in sight.


Hunger


The body chimes then.

Signal that all is not right.

Hungers, thirsts won't wait.


Gravity


What goes up comes down,

not always at the "right" time.

God wills it is so.


Hilarity


Yuck it up they do.

To me it seems so silly.

To them it's just right.


Solemnity


Accountants seem stressed,

especially at tax time;

taxpayers are too.


Sorting and sifting....

Paper is a blessing and a curse!

  • A Haiku: It's November
    4

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

  • A Haiku - Cherry Buds
    2

    By the ending days of winter all of nature yearns for spring.

  • A Haiku - Leadership
    20

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

I loved the parody in some of these. What a mind you have!

aviannovice - I'll mind my mind, if you don't mind; but your minding it too is fine with me.

Love the haikus. Consider some on Frosty, Santa, Reindeer themes?
