Haiku, Can You?

Time to wend your way
through turning pathways of a
sparkly labyrinth
Too humid outside
to take a lovely long walk
which makes me grumpy
Precarious perch
little grey cat looking down
decides to return
Can you imagine
Adorning your human feet
with elfin slippers?
Bold sunny faces
bear the plain name of Susan
of the blackened eyes
Crane neck to the side
gaze at sandhill wanderers
fuzzy grey babies
Morning spectacle:
upon the cast-iron chair-back
perch three feathered friends

Far Out Unicorn Medal

Groovy. Peace out, man.

This is what I was doing on Saturday morning: the Color Run at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. The run is not timed, so half the participants were walking instead of running. I alternated doing both, because I am woefully out of shape. It was a lot of fun. You get colored powder thrown at your white T-shirt along the course, giving rise to a tie-dye effect. Sadly, all of the colorful powder washed out of the shirt when I washed it. However, I got a UNICORN medal for finishing. Which was all I really wanted, anyway.img_20190824_105944165

Haiku time again

Pitter patter rain comes down

Thor swings his mighty hammer

Thunder quakes the sky

Misty, muggy air

The early morning sun sweats

Dewdrops glistening

Divebombing warbirds

Creating nasty messes

Need magical stuff.

Crouching on the rock

Brown spots dapple slimy skin

Frog watches then leaps

STOP A MOMENT FOR

HIBISCUS AND PINK LILIES

DON’T SMELL THE ROSES

Hop, scurry, cricket

Tries to hide in the bathroom

I caught it anyway

“Why is the rum gone?”

Demands Captain Jack Sparrow.

‘Cause you drank it, fool!

Lonely cracked willow

Supports birds in fragile boughs

Plum water yet beckons
