Poetry Party

We had a successful poetry party on Saturday night, although I regret to say that I didn’t take any pictures. My brother was too self-conscious wearing a beret 🙂 We had some great wine and cheese, but the most successful part was probably the rotating haikus: A haiku is 3 lines: the first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7, and then the third has 5 again. So one person wrote the first line and passed it to the person sitting next to them to write the 2nd line, etc. Here are some of the haikus just for fun:

Cheese is really good

But lactose intolerance

Prevents dairy-joy

Deep thoughts, busy days

Are they incompatible?

My haiku says yes

“Sonic Boom”

Can’t hear the music

Color overwhelms senses

Deaf and blind crazy

The frost becomes dew

Sun, the magnifying glass

Now I can forgive

“Think outside the sox”

My shoes are too small

I hate my big finger-toes

Solution: an axe

“Stomach’s Query”


Why is there nothing to eat?

The dog looks tasty

Heavens T’Betsy

I think I have a flat tire

And a balding head

The start of the world

Such that no one can define

Albert Einstein mad
