Haiku – 8/23/2020

Slice of key lime pie

Cool, tart, sweet, and tropical

Food escapism

Haiku – 2/15/2020

Bodies softly sway

Moving with Calypso beat

Nuclear bombs drop

+

The song Apocalypso by Jimmy Buffett inspired this Haiku. I heard it on my walk this morning and immediately a Haiku sprang to mind. Inspiration is found in the strangest places. Have a great weekend.

Haiku – Tropical Holiday 2

This is another one of mine that kind of got lost in the shuffle earlier this month. I liked the sound of it so I thought I would give it another shot at stardom this Christmas season.

Boat on the ocean

Silver bells tied to the mast

Jingling with the waves

Haiku – Tropical Holiday 1

I wrote this Haiku earlier this month and for some reason it got lost in the shuffle of the day. I thought I would re-post it because I really liked this one. I wanted to give it a second chance this holiday season.

A warm silent night

Ocean breeze stirs the stockings

Hung with gentle care

Haiku – 3 Looks at Ocean

A warm silent night

Ocean breeze stirs the stockings

Hung with gentle care

Boat on the ocean

Silver bells tied to the mast

Jingling with the waves

Salty ocean breeze

Santa sipping cold eggnog

Trying to relax

Haiku – In the Jungle

Cascading gently

Soft tropical waterfall

Warm and inviting

+

Funny how we are inspired to write. I came up with warm tropical waterfall while washing my sons hands before he had breakfast. I thought, that would be a great line in a Haiku. So, I sat down and wrote this one out this morning. Hope you enjoy it.

Ocean side

Sitting with my toes

Firmly planted in the sand

Underneath a loud flapping palm tree

Blue

That’s my first attempt at Sidlak Poetry. I would love to hear some thoughts on it and I would love to see what you can do. Post your Sidlak poem either in the comments section or your own blog. Swing back over and leave me your link so I can check it out.

Great version of this Buffett classic.

Haiku – Fiji

Palm trees line the shore

Warm air and sand fill your soul

Positive beach vibes

+

I was watching an Island Hunter’s show on HGTV and they went to Fiji. Such a beautiful place that it inspired this Haiku. I’ve never been, but if you have I would love to hear your thoughts on what it was like to visit there.

Haiku – Buffett Dreaming

This Haiku was inspired by this post: Sherry Fundin.

Check out her site for awesome book reviews and occasional side bars.

She has been a big supporter of mine. Thanks Sherry for all you’ve done for me.

Here’s the Haiku:

A boat on the water

Sails full, filled with warm salt air

Sea breeze in my face

 

Haiku – The Pot is Empty

Cold morning, hot coffee

Caffeine fueling my blood stream

Pumping through my veins

+

It’s cold out there folks – hang in there Buffalo and the surrounding areas. How about a tropical picture that I found on the web to warm us all up?
