    Evening of fireworks
    Dazzling artwork in the sky
    Lights dance to music

    Of course fireworks don’t always happen in the sky

    Wild West Haiku Inspired By Marty Robbins

    July 15, 2022 at 10:05 pm (Folklore, Poetry, western) (, , , )

    Out in West Texas
    Town of El Paso there was
    A Mexican girl

    Rose’s Cantina
    Was the place she’d be found
    Her skirt polished the ground

    As she whirled and twirled
    Like the storm of a desert
    Where n’eer bush was found

    Felina was name
    Of this pretty young maiden
    Sent men’s hearts a-flayin’

    Many fell in love with
    This Mexican maiden
    That condom sales were arazin’

    Sheriff Joe Biden
    Entered the cantina’s doors
    Hunter’s came on the floors

    Lecherous sheriff
    Sniffed the young maiden’s hair
    As off went his underwear

    He was soon filled with lead
    And fell to cantina floor
    Looking awful dead

    Such was fair Felina
    But her spell did not affect
    Gay pope from Argentina

    -A series of haikus
    written in 30 degrees Celsius heat
    By Christopher
    Which possibly has the same effects
    As using hallucinogenic drugs

    Theatrical Haiku

    July 5, 2022 at 9:32 pm (Poetry, theatre) ()

    A school production
    Memorizing lines for part
    classic in making

    Romeo a name
    And Juliet just as fair
    Is this love star-crossed

    Perhaps more modern
    Like cat on a hot tin roof
    Meows and claws come out

    Haiku On The 12th Anniversary of My Dad’s Death From Cancer

    June 16, 2022 at 9:22 pm (Poetry) ()

    My dad wrote Western short stories for the old Western pulp magazines to help pay his way through University.

    Some 12 years ago
    My dad left this earthly realm
    I’m missing you still
