smooth jazz

light saxophones tweet
over soft "sexy" vocals :
I'm in music hell

spilling the beans

Lacking the ring, it's
not official, but Mom has
a surprise in store!

Reader, I said I'd
marry him! Diamonds aren't required:
sparkling eyes suffice.

this is all a dream, however

in reality
clouds jealously watch as we
roll back into bed

Barrel of Monkeys

Must pass on haiku
Friend from college is actress
Chicago band of jesters:

why the stairs left me breathless

he smiles and carries
all the bags upstairs with grace
simple act floods heart

yo, where is everybody

it's spring, trees blossom
new leaves emerge, nobody
writes - much too busy!

Saturday, Another View

rainy rainy day
our creek runneth over but
our basement is dry

Guest Haiku: Heather B. of Top Shelf

Original post
on Top Shelf Feb 29th
Sabres Haiku - yay!


The Sabres are dumb
Montreal’s powerplay, great
Stop taking stupid penalties you stupid morons

(My rhythm is off a little on that last line. I had to warm-up, okay?)

I hate Kotalik
He really pisses me off
Please trade him right now

Max is really fast
That’s all he’s really good for
Please trade him right now

Harry Neale is old
I think he’s going senile
Please trade him right now

Henrik Tallinder
At least he’s still real pretty
Unlike tonight’s game

Winning is big fun
But we’re better at losing
God hates Buffalo

Harry Neale is old
He thinks we should score goals
No shit, you old man

One more goal for Habs
Crunchy’s five hole was gaping
This game really blows

This game really blows
Haikus are a lot more fun
Like them more than hockey

Carey Price in goal
Looks really good there tonight
Sabres won't shoot the puck

This is not much fun
When does football season start
Bills can’t be much worse

Second goal for us
Price looked like a rookie there
Too little, too late

Sabres playing hard
Games are sixty minutes long
They just don’t get it

Habs are really good
I think they’ll win the conference
I hate them for it

Two-on-one again
Henrik breaks up the passing
Ryan muffs rebound

Game is really bad
Mark turned off television
Can't really blame him

Buffalo Sabres
are never winning again.
Wish I could quit them

From Ross to his Family on Valentine's Day

Roses are all red
I like Roses but you more
more than anything

a room full of toys
the one she chose to play with?
her bellybutton

one more night

Diagnosis grim.
pain too much for cat and me.
Tomorrow, she rests.

Little girl cat purrs
raggedly, facing away
already leaving

I stroke her soft ears
she twitches her tail, annoyed.
not time for tears yet!
