  • New! – Your Unusually Banal Friday Haikus

    Posted by Jonathan on March 6th, 2015 (All posts by )

    I had all these plans
    A brief nap and suddenly
    It’s three hours later


    Good flying advice:
    Break ground, take off into wind
    And not the converse


    At the gas station
    We cringe at the dreaded words:
    See clerk for receipt

    Fix-A-Flat didn’t
    Our Costco tire warranty
    Came to the rescue

      Bright Spring sun outside,
      Crocus opened, snowdrops bask,
      No snow drops, thank God.

      Two pigeons belawned,
      Complain fattly about dearth,
      A diet of worms.

      We need cherry aid.

      Gardening, the sole
      War that refreshes the soul:

      Canada geese flocks
      Devastate plowed winter fields
      So much for cuteness

      Stars glitter, sparkle.

      Turning lead to gold
      Was the alchemists’ dream, but
      Not at this low price

      My Uni-ball pen
      Writes well with ink that won’t fade
      Sturdy, spare, exact

      Looked out the window
      Reflect by fireplaces’ glow
      Wind chill factor blows

      Winter’s crushing hand
      at the throat of the country.
      Global warming, HA!

      Stacks are growing everywhere
      Time to build more shelves

      With coathangers, toothbrushes
      Entropy? Not quite

      Little League game lost

      Grandson’s birthday party later

      Panzer tanks sooth pain.
