Haiku: Late to NaPoWriMo

~ Late to NaPoWriMo ~

Every year National Poetry Month creeps up on me and I don’t notice it. Finally, a chance for a haiku today…


April, halfway through

Before I see the verses

It’s NaPoWriMo!


Haiku: Time Marches On

I cannot believe we are entering the third month of the year already. I know that everything seems to speed up as you get older, but this is getting ridiculous. It’s Friday already and I haven’t written a haiku for a while, so here goes:

~ Time Marches On ~

Quickly the day flies
For us, time travelers, all.
But one way only…



Haiku: Eight Hours

Earlier this week we spent an interesting (!) eight hours in the local ER, to a large extent at the behest of my daughter’s pediatrician. Nothing overly serious in the end, but it did give me some thinking time, and the Monty Python Hospital sketch did creep into my mind…

~ Eight Hours ~

Needles and vitals
And the machine that goes ‘ping.’
Emergency Room.



Haiku: Darwin Day

As a biologist today I pay homage through haiku to Charles Darwin, the scientist who proposed the theory of evolution, who was born this day in 1809.

A wonderful thing:
species origination
to explain nature.

Haiku: Groundhog Day

Punxsutawney Phil
Opines upon his shadow.
We’ve been here before.

Haiku: Fire Rooster

Today is the Chinese New Year. It seems fitting to celebrate with a haiku:

~ Fire Rooster ~

The Fire Rooster crows

A shrill warning for the world

Hot summer ahead



Haiku: Last Moonwalker
