Haiku Monday - sweet...

pink cotton candy
clouds greet the new day's sunrise.
welcoming promise.

moonlight and music.
slow dancing and romancing.
don't knock it, try it.

Oompa Loompas have
the sweetest job. Nothing but
choc-o-late all day.

it goes to my hips
and thighs and tummy and cheeks.
nothing escapes bulge.

The topic for this week's Haiku Monday is
Curm is the host.

You have until midnight, his time, to
submit your entries.

Is it Georgia Brown?
Neil said it is Caroline
My Lord, Harrison

My efforts usually suck, this one more than ever. I could not think of a good third line. The five syllables limited using Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte by Patti Page or James Taylor's How sweet it is.

Jean said...

Joe, your haikus never suck.
You could always try another using those other two in the seven syllable line.
That's how I usually end up with more than one. The possible variations go on and on.

Doom said...

The portents of a good day.

The makings of a good night.

Manufacturing in the good old days.

The battle of the bulge.

Oh noes, you DO know some science, chemistry, biology, and history!

Jean said...

ha...Doom, I'm old. I should know many things.

Curmudgeon said...

Jean should I move doom's and Joe's haiku to my blog?

Jean said...

Joe doesn't usually enter the contests, just tosses his creativity here. And, Doom didn't do a haiku, he commented on each of mine. :-)
So, I guess that would be 'nah'.

Curmudgeon said...

oaky doky.

i'm starting to think it's high time rubenesque was back in style. i've always loved that sketch. nice haiku, btw. i'm thinking curmudgeon is going to have his job cut out for him.

Jean said...

Thanks, Foam. Did you toss one into the mix? I hope so, I always like your haiku.

Karl said...

Good evening Jean,

Just want to thank you. The Oompa Loompas song finally got, Christmas Bells out of my head. I'm hoping for a quick replacement.

And so you know, to my mind. Rubenesque is in style.

Jean said...

Karl, good grief. I never thought of that as a side affect. Let's see...I know! Go with the Beach Boys. Maybe.
If Rubenesque is is style, I am good to go.
Thanks for visiting!
