Sheet Musing
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Both my legs travel down the fresh sheet.
It feels cool to the touch, tight, and neat.
Now fully stretched out
They relax and then … doubt.
A rough tear has assaulted my feet.

(Inspired by this prompt to write about texture and an over-priced, lousy sheet.)

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.)

This Haiku Has Legs

Two legs — once scrawny,
Now attractively muscled.
The up side of stairs.
