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

Silver bells tied to the mast

Jingling with the waves

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?
