More random haiku

From Jan. 29, 2011

Weekends tailor made
For resting up, healing hurts
Restoring spirits

From May 17, emptying a notebook.

Dinner with our friends
What a great idea! Let’s
Ask ourselves over

Meta-data are
Vertically integrated
But what does that mean?

(Tahoma’s the default email font on a lot of PC’s these days.)

Like Tahoma she’s
Sleek, modern; the only thing
She’s sans is serifs

How come Beethoven
Seldom could find his teacher?
‘Cause he was Haydn

(And the first in a series on square dancing that never materialized.)

At the big square dance
Homer Simpson busts a move
Watch him doh-si-DOH!

From May 18

The real mystery
Is history: Why don’t we
Learn its real lessons?

Ruby Tuesday’s like
TGI Fridays only
Three days earlier

Ink from well-kept pen
Flows smoothly across the page
Writing should feel good

Alt cars won’t flourish
Without charged-up promotion:
Volt, Leaf need big plug

I guess you could say
Arrested Development
Is my middle line

Random from the past

Random haiku from earlier this year

Feb. 10, Boulevard Brewery and Christopher Elbow release new chocolate beer. I pass:

Chocolate beer? I guess
Christopher doesn’t know his
Ale from his elbow

Beatles on haiku:
“Well she was just seventeen”
Syllables, that is

May 11

You must remember
This: A kiss is just a kiss
But don’t tell Hershey

Digital photos
Have no darkroom moments to
See what develops

And one for a friend, on what would’ve been her father’s 75th birthday:

A dad’s Cheshire smile
Lingers in our memory
Warms us to this day

June 10

Do crazy quilters
Consider their handiwork
A blanket statement?

How to take a “smiley tear”?

July 21

Shuttle touches down
One last time, its star sailors
Back in Earthly port

Hearts that soar must land
But mine, having none of that,
Slips gravity’s grip

Random haiku

4 kindergartners
Clad in pink, red, yellow, blue
Rainbow peds x-ing

Syria’s rebels
Hope to bridge their differences
Push Asad aside

Health food — chocolate dipped
Coating keeps out all the germs
Buy them at Hole Foods

We get what we want
But not when we wanted it
Timing’s everything!

And a contribution to the BAD HAIKU group on Facebook, where pretty much anything goes. I think this was part of a bunch about grapes.

Doll, peel me a grape
Run your fingers through my hair
Read some bad haiku
