#ANWR #Drilling #Haiku



Simple principle.
Have to drill where the oil is.
Can't tell it to "move."

Peaceful waves roaring.
Sea birds caw, gentle wind blows.
Squalling kid runs past.

Confused and Searching Haiku


Not on the same page.
Finding common ground, hard work.
Committed survive.

"It won't work," I said.
"Stop! I already tried that!"
She tried. It worked. Sigh.

Barely hanging on.
If the last, strongest thread breaks,
is there any hope?

Blue plastic dummies.

#Paris #CharlieHebdo March #Haiku


POTUS skips French march.

Depression haunting.
Churchill called it his black dog.
Indifference, worse.

Sleep deprivation.
Stumbling through life half awake.
So exhausted. Sad.

Mindless politics.
Spouts without understanding.
Check your "facts," then speak.

The project makes sense!

Sore muscles, oy vey!

Skied at Timberline.
Not what you'd call a "natch'ral."
Nothing broken though.

Rebels in the Peach
Ball Boy roughed the Frogs' mascot
Most offense they had.

A 2014 Adieu Haiku

I haven't posted a blog in months. Ostensibly, it's because I hit a snag in my Favorite Things list with "X," but the truth is, I've just had other things on my mind. I've typed a couple of entries, but nothing that sounded worth reading to my own ears, let alone anyone else's. Maybe I'll get back to the keyboard seriously, but for now I'm gonna try something nearly mindless for a little while. Haikus.

Two Thousand fourteen.
Haven't blogged in seven months.
Haikus in fifteen?
