    A Really Good Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

     

     

     

     

    Here's this week's heap of haikus:

     

     

     

    The Easter Bunny
    scared her so much, she went to
    church without a peep.

    Happy Birthday, Billy Collins.

     

     

    In the midst of political rhetoric which has now reached a kind of sixth dimension of reality shows interbreeding with news hosts and spawning the likes of You Know Who, we are very fortunate to have our poets, especially Billy Collins, born on March 22.  

    With more gall than intrepidness I offer a small tribute, a poetic review of my favorite collection of his poems, in the book, "Sailing alone around the room". (published some time ago).

     

           AHOY, BILLY.

     

    Stirring opposite reflections,

    Marching Forth on a Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

     

     

     

    Here's this week's heap of haikus:

     

     

     

    The world passes by.
    I look out my window and
    imagine stories.

    Where-ever I go,
    I feel I am at home, which
    is embarassing.

    A Flattering Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

    An over-dose of
    an antidote, will become
    a poison itself

    Left Las Vegas

    Ok, moving back to regular Reader section.

    Our Choice

    Donald J. Trump will be the Republican nominee. Let's stop pretending otherwise and wasting time when there's so much at stake.

    So who do we want to put up against him? Let's be honest; no one agrees and likely won't until they're told they're wrong long enough to give in unless they convince the other side that they're totally wrong. Sounds like a caucus. Sounds like politics.

    In our memories
    Scout and Atticus ... and Boo
    shall live forever.

    A Frequently Freezing Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

    A knock at the door.
    her face rings a bell  ... My past
    has caught up with me.

    Here's this week's heap of haikus:

     

     


    triple haiku:

    Consistency makes
    unimaginative lives
    seem less vacuous.


     

    Consistent is not
    a value, it's an action.
    (Erratic is too.)

    My car windows would
    seem an unlikely source of
    Sunrise reflections

    The Very First Second Friday Afternoon of The Year at the Haikulodeon

    New Years Resolution-ku:

    Here's to hoping that
    the treadmill we're on, does not
    go any faster.

    A Day Late Year-End Review at the Haikulodeon - pt. 1

    2015 was an amazing year at the Haikulodeon.  I have been going through all the comments this past year and there are so many great haikus, I'm going to post this year-end review in two parts.  I've included some of my haiku comments in the mix because they fit into the thread and sparked other responses.   Thanks to all who responded last year, including Barefooted, Richard Day, Guy named Lulu, moat, Oxy Mora, Peracles Please, Trkingmomoe and Ramona.

    Happy New Year. Dagbloggers!!

    Here's this week's heap of haikus:

     


    December morning,
    I walk through an alleyway
    between two churches.

    Hidden in the creche;
    a marble he'd stolen from
    his little brother.

    A Warm, Yet Wintry Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

     

     

    Here's this week's heap of haikus: 

     

     

    double haiku:

    To avoid what is
    unknown is to stop asking
    questions.  Keep learning.

    Life is a question
    Our quest for knowing is the
    path on which we walk

    A Pre-Approved Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

    tanka haiku:

    "That's me with Santa"...
    "Why are you on a horse and
    not on a reindeer?"

    Grandma paused and then whispered,
    "Dear, no-one sits on Rudolph."

    (My mom with Santa ... circa 1927)

    My faded old jeans
    easy and comfortable;
    worn from the wearing.

    One luxury of
    being rich; you can ignore
    all your own failings.

    Delicious Pecan Fruit Cake

    Fruit Cake has a bad reputation as being dry and heavy like a brick.  I found this delicious recipe many years ago on the back of a cake mix.

    Bourbon Sweet Potato Cookies

    This cookie recipe will really add something different to your holiday list of cookies.  It is not overly sweet and full of flavors that just roll of your tongue.  It has real wow factor going for it. If you do make these for cookie exchanges and gift giving make sure you include the recipe because you will asked for it.

    I wander the streets
    confused and bleeding, I can't

    on a harmonious beach
    blues, powered by wind.
