The war in Iraq
continues unabated
I still pray for peace.

Train Conductor Haiku

Passengers will please
Refrain from loud music or
Spitting on the train.

(I really heard this!)

Love the train haiku
Spitting sounds almost seren
if the meter's right.

Seren is no word.
Serene is what I wanted
but I cannot type.

After the Office Gift Exchange

The air is nauseous
With the mingling fumes of
Our scented candles.

Winter-bright eyes and
Rosy cheeks. Frozen fingers
Crave hot chocolate.

It's Valentine's Day:
Everywhere hearts and roses.
May true love find you.

If true love is scarce
then chocolate will do nicely
a sweet subsitute.

Hello all, I'm back
I've returned to astonish
with a short poem

It's called a Haiku
I know that you know of them
So please, please enjoy.

Haikus are a drink
At the Giant's Shadow Bar
I make the best ones.

You should try one there.
They're non-alcoholic
At least my kind are.

A twist of lemon:
the only adornment for
the perfect Haiku.

But the Haiku IS
a drink! Vodka, Vermouth, and
a twist of lemon.

Enjoy your stay here

(Yeah, I'm a crappy Haiku-er.)

Sing a song of Hatrack-ness

Some of us leave work
Merely aiming for our homes;
Others see visions.

Clouds on a black sky
Rim a starry starry map:
North America.

the time was not right.

The DaVinci Code
Is really addictive;
no work done today.

It's only a book
so when I finish with it
back to work for me

However, Hatrack
is ALWAYS here to tempt me
away from duties.
