Creatures Great and Small


curious weaving—
two whales swimming side by side
in the tapestry
~~ ~~ ~~
the birds that followed Jesus
pecking at my eyes
~~ ~~ ~~
wary and alert
two flies meeting for breakfast
in the sugar bowl

  1. First – like surprising 2&3 lines; Second – scary, are you on the way?; Third – fun! I want to know the story! 🙂 Enjoyed.

  2. flies and birds oh my! ooh some story there. I love the tapestry that you weave with your haikus.

  3. That second one made me flinch a bit. I like that you started each of the pieces with one of the words. You definitely captured these creatures (great and small) in an unique way.

  4. Pesky flies in the sugar bowl spoiling everything..plotting and planning…nicely swerved… 😉

  5. I like 3 as well. Flies in the sugar bowl shoo fly shoo…skip to my Lou my darlin’!

  6. The problem with flies they have probably just been to the Loo. However that was my favorite too.

  7. These three brought chuckles and smiles thank you Blessings Happy Thanksgiving

  8. Whales, birds and flies and they all come into the fray. Witty haiku set MMT! Happy Thanksgiving!
