Frost ~~ Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Golf course pictures were taken from our back porch

Monday morning with frost on the golf course. Temps got down to 26, the lowest of the year (2007, this year also) so far.

My Haiku/

frost on the golf course
means a frost delay for sure
we'll tee off at ten

Saturday morning after a nighttime storm with a couple of inches of rain.

morning after rain
good earth extra bright and green
golf starts at seven

Sunday morning, not a cloud in the sky!

Sunday morning bright
honor sabbath--keep it holy
afternoon golf

Sensational Haiku Wednesday is hosted by Jenn. Please click on here (Jenn's blog) for info about joining in and for more Haiku Wednesday participants.

One Single Impression: Comb

Our girl

Mothers teach
little girls learn how to comb
smoothing the locks
and loosing the snarls

Then then comes day
our girl has learned it well
beauty now reigns
where ever she is seen

Still comes the day
messy dirty looking
the comb is done
for style this girl goes grunge

Whirligig Poem -- Old dogs

Old dogs and old tricks


searching my soul today, finding pups of all sorts

impotent hounds trying to make love with their kin

molesting is too good a word for their antics  

nightmares come forth easily for their prey, sic em

cheesy they try to be, dog full of baloney


moonlight softens making pale light for hounds in love

Bright enough, it siluettes lightning bugs for jars

Bitches safe but scared bejeebies, their short hair curls


sun will shine in the morning, new or tired is all

The naughty dogs will come home to eat and to rest

calm is a word some don't know.  Fed, they'll go again


aubades for the ladies, know not old suitors safe

"The Ancestors Explain How Envy Grew" by Afaa Michael Weaver:
