Halloween Haiku

Which is scarier:
Elections, economy,
Or trick or treaters?

Office Intrigue

Oh, office intrigue!
Who is on whose hit list now?
Snarling, biting dogs.

Paris Hilton's New BFF

Reality shows . . .
Does Paris need a new friend?
It's kinda stupid.

Don't get me wrong . . . I watch the show, but I still think it's kind of pathetic in a way. But if they integrate into the Hilton lifestyle, then more power to them, I guess. Not something I would want to do . . . they have to make total ding dongs of themselves.

It's Freezing!

I'm Floridian
I just can't take this weather
It's below eighty!

Election Burnout

Back-biting, lying . . .
I'm sick of election news
I'm tired of it all

Don Draper

Strong, slinking panther
Mysterious and striking
Prowling the jungle

I LOVE Mad Men on AMC. This haiku is dedicated to that beast of a man, Don Draper . . . a complex, gorgeous character. I hope this show is picked up for season 3!

Last Leaves

Shivering and cold
A tree clings to its last leaves
Yearning for sunshine

It's all so crazy

Lunch Hour in the Park

Serene, lunch-time hour . . .
Shaded by trees. Cooled by breeze.
Birds serenade me.

Cricket-Chirp Chorus

Cricket-chirp chorus
The answer to hard questions
Posed to idiots

Long, pointless lecture
No explanations needed
Already know that

In Love with Nature

Joy permeates the air
My heart soars as if a bird
In love with nature

Soaking in the Gloom

Dreary, gloomy day . . .
I stand beneath moss-draped trees
Soaking in the gloom.

A transformation
Snipping and snapping scissors
Sassy, new hair do

Our restful lunch hour
We sit and eat in the shade
Enjoying nature

A Freaking Haiku?

A freaking haiku?
So, it's like this: my head hurts.
I'm too tired for this.

Observing Client Behavior During a Price Increase Call

Snorting and barking
Like an animal in pain
Client price increase

Ha ha - it wasn't that bad. It's always tough to take an increase - even when the client totally understands why.

Time wasted in long meetings
Nothing accomplished

Beautiful sunrise . . .
Nature greets us, "good morning!"
A wonderful day.

Slowly stretching out
The kitty yawns lazily
He glances at me

Muscadine Memories

With one taste I had
the muscadine memories . . .
A childhood long gone.

Have you ever had a memory brought back to you by a taste or a smell? Yesterday my sister and I saw muscadines and scuppernogs (types of grapes in grown in the Southeastern US), and we decided to buy them. We used to eat them when we would visit our grandparents' houses. They grew in our yard when we lived in Villa Rica, Georgia, tool.

I popped one in my mouth and bit down. The rush of juices and fruity flesh bowled me over. I felt like I was eight again and sitting on the swing at my great grandmother's house waiting for Guy, my great grandfather, to go pick flowers with me in their garden. It was the most powerful, wonderful, achingly sad sensation I have had in a long time.

Birthday Dinner

Birthday dinner night
Smiling faces, yummy food
Better than a gift

My sister and father have birthdays within days of one another, so we had a birthday dinner tonight for them. It was nice.

Dedicated to Shawn's Broken Foot

Running in flip flops
Across a gravel-strewn road.
Ouch! He broke his foot.

My friend, Shawn, broke his foot this very way this past weekend.

Don't know what to say
It's pretty boring right now
All I do is work
