Haiku – 5/7/2021

A cool ghostly kiss

Cemetery lips on skin

Pressed to his forehead

Funny thing. This Haiku was inspired by something tickling my nose as I went to bed last night. I assume it was a piece of string or the bed sheet – but, who knows?

Dull tomato red

Piercing the new morning sky

Storm about to break

When I got out of bed this morning the sky looked amazing and it looked like it was about to burst with the most violent storm I had ever seen. Thankfully it didn’t, but it did inspire this Haiku.

Sometimes things happen that are so strange you can’t explain them. While my kids were watching a nature video this morning we started getting visited by a couple of birds. They actually wound up landing on our window screen, bobbing their heads back and forth, as they tried to figure out what was going on inside our house. Never seen a bird do that. Seemed like they were trying to see what we were watching. Guess the nature video peeked their interest.
