Haiku Monday - Circle...



hoop skirts. Southern belles.
grand BBQ at Twelve Oaks.
the first hula hoops.



This week's Haiku Monday is hosted by the
thoughtful and creative Curmudgeon's Complaint.
The topic he chose is: CIRCLE.

I think Curmudgeon picked a really good theme because all of the Haikus are really good. Hoop skirts! Glad I missed THAT fashion trend, but it could have been a good place to hides small dogs?

Ha! Until the first time you tripped over them. Whoopsy! Flashin' the pantaloons.

looks like we have to look up the grand BBQ, because I don't understand why a BBQ can be a circle.

Jean said...

Good grief.
I thought I was tres clever to start it with 'hoop' and end it with 'hoop'.

foam said...

absolutely ...
and, yes indeed, you did create a circular haiku .. :-)

Jean said...

Thanks, Foam. At my age, I am easily impressed with my minimal efforts.

Those are some serious hoops! How did that style start anyway? I can just see soldiers in gray saying "Hey! Check out the hoops on that one!"

I kept four hula hoops going once.

Jean said...

Bwahaha!Curm. I'll have to research hoop skirts.
Four hula hoops? Damn. You're good.

Both pictures make me so happy I never was into hoop skirts or hula hoops.

Jean said...

I don't think either would flatter you, Mark.
