Haiku on Save/ Choose/ Snow/ Better/ Down


They danced together
His whisper soft in her ear
Save me the last dance

Fund is running low
Charity not on today
Need save the fund fund

Since early childhood
He saved in a piggy bank
Coins now out of date


Some people choose pain
Atoning for perceived sins
It can make things worse

Life is predestined
You choose not to believe that
But is it your choice?

Each pathway in life
Choose not to actively choose
We still travel on


Rhythmic crunch of boots
Changing of the palace guard
Silence falls with snow


Towards better golf
Endless hits on practice green
Handicap improved

Our time is over
Guess I better hit the road
Until next Sunday

Is it ritual?
The cream swirl, or coffee hit?
I feel better now


Your hands feather light
Soothing my down mood away
Healing all my wounds

Soft warm body fuzz
Down in the small of your back
Tickles my fancy

Down into the depths
Escalators to platforms
Underground subways

Haiku on Day/ Prize/ Flash/ Unleash


You will rue the day
You harmed another human
It black marks your soul

Dayboro, Queensland
Dayboring by day and night
Watching pineapples

Suddenly it dawned
First day, the rest of his life
He knew he could change


They all raced around
Drying out after the flood
Prize to every one

For weird diseases
Things I don't know, cannot treat
She does take the prize

For egg and spoon race
There can only be one prize
The last intact egg


Red carpet rolled out
Scantily clad young nymphettes
Flash bulbs and fireworks

She caught him looking
Sudden hot flash surprised her
Early menopause?

Life goal set early
Refused to wear a nappy
Old flasher Harry


A sweet song unleashed
Onto the morning airwaves
Butcherbird calling

Sit down for a while
Unleash all your mind's power
To heal all your pain

Unleash a talkfest
Take lots of nice photographs
Avoid decisions
