Haunted By Haiku

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Warning to those here for their daily dose of “funny.” Most of these aren’t. Sorry!

My passionate hunt
for humor in the mundane—
a chastening quest.

*****

Vulgar temptation
haunts, tantalizes, prevails—
beats dainty retreat.

*****

Passionate and raw
feelings too painful to root
escape on breached wings.

*****

Integrity fights
a war against temptation—
battles to a draw.

*****

A thought tempts, glimmers,
says “explore me,” then wings off—
never to return.

*****

Marching to the beat
of your own drum may work best
in solo parades.

*****

To those who ask me
how I remember my verse—
that’s what blogs are for.
