How To Stay Awake

how to stay awake
on long late night drives without
caffeine, write a haiku

Poor Wife

She slid on the ice
a purple cast to her leg
a shame she can't hike


Bumper Sticker says
Pray for Peace, so I ask you
Did you vote for Bush?


I drive Iowa
to Iona in my home
state of Ohio

An ode

are the anti-kitchen so
no more purchases

Please my darling wife
the Pottery Barn is bad
good things are bought there

although they are nice
they eat up kitchen money
here we go again


this did not work the
way that blogspot intended
i will try again

a wish for wings that

an ocean away
is a simple thing with which
to blog from afar

a test to this blog

a test to this blog
here now we see if nature
can redirect a blog

I write to priase haikus / It's not that they are easy / But that I am hard

Some friends discussed poems
Alliteration? Couplet?
English Lit was tough!

I struggled with words
Sounded like a dork on drugs
Why was it so hard?

I like my haikus
Poorly penned, nonsensical
Can I have some pie?
