Fraiku Monday

It will come as a surprise, I'm sure, that I don't follow rules very well--unless I make them, and in that case, if I make them, I can break them. See how that works? Anyway, I'm homesick today, so I'm dragging out the Haiku of my starlit nights on the lake.

It's important to understand that my Haiku is all kinds of bastardized. I mean, since it will never realize its true parentage, I've named it Fraiku. Naturally, it's pretty deep stuff--a soothing salve for your blue Monday.

Watch out
ducks paddle to the docks
to poop.

May on LBJ
the hills have eyes and
binoculars.

Moonlight and tipsy,
Walking the plank with Heinies.
Whoa-o-o-oa!

Fan overhead
circulates the air and
the bullshit.

I will never look at Haikus the same way.

Kinda threw me with the "May on LBJ" thing. Thought for a second that you might be a bit too much into our 36th President until I realized it was a lake you were on not Mr. Johnson. He he. Mr. Johnson

Linda Medrano said...

I sort of love this and that kind of worries me! No I really do love this. And I never worry because it gives you wrinkles.

Eva Gallant said...

Better than any Haiku I've ever read!

Of the Fractured Fairy Tales
Your fractured Haiku

I like them. Who needs rules?

daisyfae said...

i particularly like "Whoa!" as a five syllable word. works for me and my family...

injaynesworld said...

I totally got thrown with the LBJ, too. LOL! And Heinies can only mean Heinnekin, right? Damn, you are a clever bitch. ;)

Fred Miller said...

Hey, I LOVE the one about the ceiling fan! So many moments of my life like that from a very early age.

Bella said...

ModernMom said...

Vic said...

Still trying to decide on the syllable count in "Whoa o-o-oa"....

(You need to write some Miami Vice-style haiku now.)

You call it bastardized? LOL

That's one messed piece of haiku brilliance.

Mixed Reflections said...

I'm with Kristina. I will never see Haikus in the same light--thanks a LOT. :) The final one is hilarious, by the way. (And me? It's the old Gropius; I gave the old blog a face lift.)

Lori said...

TechnoBabe said...

I'm likin' that last one. Yep, a fan can circulate it all.

Gaston Studio said...

Some good ones, but my fav contains "the hills have eyes and
binoculars." So true today!

Fred Miller said...

I thought of the ceiling fan haiku first thing this morning. So many things to bring it up. Today: "Who's going to design Kate's wedding dress?"

Madame DeFarge said...

Love the ones about ducks. Make sure you're not wearing your good shoes then.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Rules are overrated! This was fun.
Happy Thanksgiving. I hope it's a great one for you.
Cheers, jj

drollgirl said...

Irish Gumbo said...

I don't think I'd like a fan that does that...but I like these Fraiku!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Don't be blue, Liar. Wind is up at the lake. Cold front due in soon. No stars tonight.
