Haiku ~ The Wedding

Haiku ~ The Wedding

Today another Royal couple were created for the House of Windsor (or rather, Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, until the political change) and also for the paparazzi. After months of build up we will see further weeks of pictures of the wedding followed by the usual “is she pregnant yet?” speculation  for months on end up until the point at least two royal sproglets are dutifully produced to (Royal) Order.

Unsurprisingly, I didn’t watch the wedding, but instead decided to use the opportunity to celebrate the day by restarting my blog (yet again – I’ve been very busy) with the following haiku.

Enjoy, or not, the choice is yours!):

 

Worldwide coverage.

Amid pomp and vanity,

Privileged couple wed

Having said all this, I obviously wish them all the best for a long and happy future together.

Haiku ~ Bitcoin

Haiku ~ Bitcoin

It’s funny how things pan out. I was searching Amazon for a new powered USB hub as my last one seems to work no longer, and I am shown USB devices to mine bitcoins. Further reading and I stumble upon this alarming article from The Guardian explaining the effects on this activity as “…a competition to waste the most electricity possible by doing pointless arithmetic quintillions of times a second.”

Has the world gone (even more) stark, raving mad?

Heating our planet

To feed insatiable greed:

Cryptocurrency

Haiku: Love Locked

Locked there forever

On the fence at Montmartre

A shared sacred heart.

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.
