Haiku Friday - Close and Sticky Edition

(from the humidity. Just to clarify)

Two federal grants
My job to develop, write
Due at the same time

***

Fourteen days have passed
Not that I'm counting, mind you
Just fooling myself

***

Vanilla Milkshake
Popcorn and mini-churros
Sad, sad substitutes

***

Week one at Y camp
Pale skin gives way to freckles
Sun, fun, swimming, crafts

***

Does love go to waste?
Can love be found, recaptured?
Can the heart refill?

I want to write haikus... haikis?... poems that are haiku?

Mark-
It's actually pretty easy, once you get into the 5-7-5 rhythm it's hard to get out of it! :)

Good grief, can't believe it's been almost a year since I posted! I should probably find some inspiration somewhere...

Thanks for coming by - I hope you will come back - I promise I will have something new for you to read!
