Eclipse –Haiku


her lonely figure —
won’t let a lonely sun watch —
her lonely shadow …

Bondage — Haiku


unable to break
our bondage eternal —
my worry and I …

US FUSS


I wish I knew
Why the deuce is a U,
Followed by an S,
Called United States–
When for all intents and purp’ses,
A tini mini u, preceding a wiggly wriggly s,
As we were taught way back, in kindergarten class,
Is not just handfuls of yous, but earthfuls of us.

Fate


The tragedy for most of us is that
Eventually we become old and fat.


____
Based on Ogden Nash:
The trouble with a kitten is that
Eventually it becomes a cat.

Rear Fear


Onomatopoeia
Rhymes with rear
Which I suspect
Is a cause of fear.

Lament


Slender fingers,
piano reeds,
should well satisfy –
all one’s needs.
It’s strange instead
to see them gasping,
with fingers thick,
as they keep WhatSapsping.

Endless — Haiku

why? I wish I knew–

endlessly waited for you–

deserted seashore…

Wary

near burning ground,

vultures flap wings in their nests —

camera wary …

Promise — Haiku


drenched in rain I wait,

unable to find shelter —

don’t fail, she had said …

Vowel Correct


To live,

I believe,

is not a great idea,

when it is time …

to leave.
