Haiku Wednesday...

You have until midnight tonight to submit your
haiku at Sparrow's blog.

The topic is REGRETS.

the list is too long.
makes me cringe and want to hide.
so much time has passed.

ain't nothin'...

an afterthought,
if that.
not even a
backward glance.
one more
disposable toy.

The Bucket List...

The list of things you want to do before
you kick the bucket.

Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.

Awesome movie.

Re-posting from October...

I think Alan would have liked this...

Not good-bye...

If I should die
before you wake,
grieve not for could
or would.
Rejoice, instead, for had
and did
and heard, and saw
and touched.
Be glad for was,
not sad for never.
Whatever was
cannot be gone.
I'm with you now...

This Moment...

One of my favorite blog authors passed away this week.
Alan Edwards' blog, This Moment, was a daily read for
more than two years.
Beautiful photography from a beautiful, caring, intelligent,
witty, classy man. Losing him breaks my heart.

I'm leaving his blog on my sidebar.

If you have been so unfortunate to have never visited
his blog, do so now. Enjoy what he left there.
He would be pleased.

Rest in peace, Alan.

Not in the mood...

I'll be back in a day or two.
Or three.

The brain-gears have temporarily
ground to a halt. Looking for lubricant.

he's a good boy when
he wants to be.
though I was speaking
of my pup,
it dawned on me as
the words unfurled,
you sit, stay, come
when you want!

Hard Haiku...

The Weekly Wednesday Haiku Contest

Sparrow's topic this week is WORK.

Go on, give the poor woman something to
read while she's in the islands.

my entry:

We do it backwards,
you know. Play and learn while young.
Save work for old age.

I've added three milblogs to my sidebar:

A Soldier's Journey

Iraq: The Purgatorium

Bill and Bob's Excellent Afghan Adventure

They're all different. They're all good.

Sgt. Hook has been on my sidebar for a while, of course.

Meanie Haiku...

You have until midnight tonight to submit your
haiku at Sparrow's All Atwitter.

This week's topic is: TROLLS.

Sunday, January 06, 2008

Quiet, please...

if I think too loud
I hear an echo.
words megaphone
through my ears
can you hear me?
not meant for you
please ignore me.
only room for one
inside my head.

This just ain't right!...

I don't own enough clothes for this kind of weather.
Holy crap, it's cold!!

Joan says it best.
Read the comments, too.

I'm crawling back under the blankets and plugging
in another heater. Someone call me when it gets to 60.

the alluring Haiku...

It's time for Sparrow's weekly Haiku Contest.
The topic is 'TEMPTATION'.

Add your insight at All Atwitter.

c'mon, baby, you know you wanna...

Update: two entries from me...

It is vexatious
at times, to attempt to walk
only the good path.

Believe me, my friend,
the struggle remains constant.
Once more, just once more.

Update: time to vote for your favorite!

That didn't take long...

Checked my sitemeter and saw that someone,
using comcast dot net, out of Fall River, Mass.
at 8:34 a.m. did a google search for
'delivery boy sex'.

Hope it was better than... well, you know. heh.

Scroll down a bit if you don't know.
