against the odds,
spring calling, that
seduces buds to bloom,
a labor of love, despite
the lingering threat of winter,
for one glorious day in the sun

Pets at Play – A Haiku Challenge

For Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge, prompt words: Pet & Play, with the request to show photos of our playful pets. I give you the aftermath…Haha!

happypupDon’t let these innocent faces fool you!

Playful pets prefer
unread shreds of newspaper
proof they’re not well (b)read!

…and one more haiku not of the animal pet variety:

A pet peeve of mine…
when someone plays on my trust
they are the true fools.

Cheeky + Thrill Seekers + Who Play Hard

A trio of Haiku for Ronovan Writes weekly Haiku Challenge. This week the prompt words are: Shower & Play. To read more click HERE.

Shower’s are cheeky
when the couple has played house
before the wedding.

After a deluge
the river banks swell and churn
and thrill-seekers play!

Those who play hardest
will lose friends if they forget
to shower harder!
