Haiku Kachoo

Sometimes on Facebook
I perform feats of haiku
Now I post them here

Sock-puppet

Oh…hello, spider
Wait there while I arm myself
Hey, where did you go?

Pack of ten hot dogs
Yet buns come in bags of eight
What madness is this?

Fresh from the dryer
Sort and fold the fragrant warmth
Where’s my other sock?

Ah, peanut butter
Smooth spread of roasted delight
I eat the power

Have a haiku you’d like to share?  How do you dispose of the two extra hot dogs?  And how many socks have you lost to the devouring void?

The Month of the Haiku

I’ve never been a huge consumer of poetry, but I’ve long enjoyed silly fun with haikus.  As February is National Haiku Writing Month, I’ve written a few which Catherine Johnson has kindly posted on her blog.

And while you’re there, check out some of her other posts.  She does a lot of fun stuff with poetry and painting and is an all-around excellent human.
