The Daily Haiku

A world of five - seven - five. At one time daily, now kind of sporadic.

Current theme: Battle Song of the North

Follow the river
To the lands of our enemy
And they are prepared

Fight our way up the river bank
Swords, shields, the blood flows
The battle din rises

Their defenses break
As we hack through their lines
Weapons sing with blood

Treachorously strike
A spear thrust into my back
I still fight onward

Gaping wound staring
As I now fall down to my knees
Dying in a foreign land

And gasping my last breath
Raise a stone for all to see
Runes carved memory

Current theme: The Norse Blood

Odhinn's eye watches
Remember the Northern Ways
Feel the connection

Nine worlds are calling
Singing songs in my bloodline
Is it time to rise?

Current theme: The Causality of Chaos

Little butterfly
Flaps its wings in Antigua
And stirs up some dust

The swirling dust cloud
Causes a brown rat to sneeze
Which alerts the cat

The cat eats the rat
But gets bitten by the flea
That lived on the rat

The cat goes back home
None the wiser to its fate
And slowly grows sick

The poor cat passes
But not before the sickness
Spreads to its owners

The people travel
Unaware of their sick plight
And the sickness spreads

Now a plague unleashed
Spreads across the hemisphere
Mass epidemic

This is a story
How an innocent butterfly
Could kill a planet

(yep, i'm bored)

Current theme: Coffee

So warm and toasty
Refreshing liquid beverage
It awakens me!

Current theme: Bitter Cold

Below freezing temps
But no precipitation
I want snow, dammit!

Current theme: Snow?

The snow had fallen
But it never seems to last
Melting to nothing

Current theme: My Buddy B. part 2

I just realized
That "My Buddy B." sounds like
A kid's movie's name

A boy and his dog
"My Buddy B." now starring
Benji the puppy!

Current theme: My Buddy B.

Here is to hoping
That my buddy B. is well
In the hospital!

Current theme: Spine

X-rays for my spine
Is my spine causing spasms
In my back muscles?

Soon I will find out
If the spasms are treatable
Or I stick with drugs

January 7, 2008

Current theme: Almost Summer?

Seventy degrees?
In freaking January?
We are so damn screwed.

Current theme: Wondering

Clenched tight in my back
Trapezius muscle pain
Spasm won't let up

Current theme: Wondering

Something new to do
With these writings of haiku
Needing something new
