Haiku Times Eight

Striving Poet's Corner

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!
