Haiku #134 (May 7)

Spring and Summer battle
For May domination
Tornadoes ensue.

Haiku #135 (May 8)

Cupid, choose your spear
As Erik begged, but make sure
To aim it at HIM!

by Cheryl Crockett

Inspired by a poetic volley on Google+:

I am begging you
Cupid if you’re real, aim good.
Use a spear instead.

by Erik Sala

In Biblical proportions
Blow dust off scripture.

ankle deep

Still protects her favorite dress
Though tattered and stained.

Mother’s wisdom speaks
Guiding us to our future
Even when she’s gone.

Haiku #142 (May 13)

anxious for fresh ink
my new clean virgin white page
awaits pen’s first touch.

Inspired by:

white sheet of paper
desires to know my secrets
write for all to see
