Accidental Haiku

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

It makes me fidget,
but I book myself to write
accidental verse.

*****
Accidental glance,
de-liberating romance—
just the dance of chance.

*****

Shocking incident:
things accidentally went
exactly as planned.

*****

Ms. Bristol Palin’s
book contract and dancing gig—
accident of birth.

*****

Booked reservation
at restaurant, but canceled—
had reservations.

*****

If you dare mention
certain odd affinities,
brace for fidgeting.

Out on a Limb Haiku Quintet

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Though I’m never safe,
his arms always comfort me,
and that must suffice.

*****

Ballroom dancing class—
learning creative ways to
defeat the rumba.

*****

Morning legs dangle
off the bed, as antique joints
brace for their touch down.

*****

Feeling elated—
great, yet dampened by knowing
what’s soon to follow.

*****

Poised atop mirage
of a career, gazing down
at life left behind.

(I wrote the 1st haiku for We Write Poems’ safe prompt; the 4th haiku for Sensational Haiku Wednesday’s elation prompt; and the 5th haiku for One Single Impression’s top prompt and Haiku Heights’ mirage prompt.)
