Why do we seem to,
Want our politicians to,
Act like troglodytes.

Monday, January 30, 2012


I am not quick to,
Anger or making speeches.
I am phlegmatic.

Sunday, January 29, 2012


To turn away ire,
Of a friend, try a token,
Sent as a douceur.

Saturday, January 28, 2012


An election year.
So many speeches, so full,
Of spurious claims.

Friday, January 27, 2012


I am creative.
But I cannot create a,
Single Wellerism.

A clever speaker,
Can deke the opposition.
Control the debate.

Fifth Column

To express dissent,
The act of a patriot.
Not a fifth column.

Change is a constant.
This is immutable fact.
Be prepared for it.

Monday, January 23, 2012


Are we all alone?
Is there anyone out there in,
The inane of space?

Sunday, January 22, 2012


My haiku efforts,
Are not always high quality.
Hope they fructify.

Saturday, January 21, 2012


Hostility may,
Come, but satisfaction lives,
In a strong riposte.

Friday, January 20, 2012


Not every talk,
Is meant for everyone.
Sometimes must collogue.

Thursday, January 19, 2012


Classes start, car breaks.
New phone, job continues on.
Life holus-bolus.

Wednesday, January 18, 2012


An action might have,
An ulterior meaning.
Too much a cynic?

Tuesday, January 17, 2012


My role at work is,
Often a didactic one.
Still try to have fun.

Monday, January 16, 2012


I have a wardrobe,
Made up of blacks, blues, and grays.
More vinaceous hues?

King's Ransom

My education,
It can get expensive but,
Worth a king's ransom.

Saturday, January 14, 2012


My film library,
An omnium-gatherum.
My tastes are varied.

Friday, January 13, 2012


Sometimes you can feel,
Like keelhauling someone else.
Relax and forgive.

Thursday, January 12, 2012


A conversation,
Light and frothy among friends.
Time for a causerie.

Wednesday, January 11, 2012


Payday is today.
Time to care for all matters

Note: Okay, I know fiduciary doesn't mean the same thing as financial (at least I do after reading the definition on my calendar), but this came so quickly, misuse of the day's word and all, that I couldn't bear to not use it.

Political Show.
Candidates nothing more than
Preening popinjays.

Ab ovo

A new year begins.
Many things to do and explore.
Will start ab ovo.

Author's Note

As a daily writing exercise, I've decided to get back to doing this, but with an added wrinkle.  I got a Word-a-Day calendar for 2012, and I will use each day's word in that day's haiku.  For one thing, this gives me a starting place each day and makes it less likely I'll drop the ball again.  It also provides a challenge to keep the exercise interesting, particularly for days with off-beat words.
