Like a tiny whip

given to lash at my mind,

the hangnail looms large.

Watched a journey through

Chernobyl last night. Drinking

Unfiltered water.


Sleeping on dusty

Apartment floors in Pripyat.

The Ukraine ghost town.


Somehow my own rest,

Was restless by no own stress!

How many sieverts


Does it take before

You feel it. How much was there

In the reservoir,


Radiation's strange

And scary. Ghost town eerie,

Some people insane.

Do what you desire

With all that is yours, they say

But am I my own?

Kasparov, a man

Deep Blue, a bunch of circuits

A historic match

Rope elevator,

Took a highwayman skyward.

Isn't it a shame?

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-11-18 06:01:06


Always wondering

Who we are and what we are...

Dust? I choose a star.

Ten invited guests,

Dancing to a brief poem.

Not one survivor.

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-11-19 05:42:12


Some days in a rush,

To get places and such yet

Some days get nowhere.

Man cheese yum

Dripping down your face

Go wash up

*Sips tea*

We march through the March,

Though now more like November,

Where has this time gone

A car stuck in snow.

Driver turns to see something.

A scream, then silence.

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-11-21 09:27:53


It's a four-chord song,

No melody, no movement,

But nice all the same.

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-11-21 09:30:42


I almost forgot,

What day it was yesterday.

Forget tomorrow.

On snakes and ladders:

If we get a new ice age

You can climb snakes too

Why did you tell them?

They didn't need to know that.

Now they're traumatised!

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-12-05 11:13:53


PTSD may

Not be fun but there's also

Post Traumatic Growth

Almost time to put

This year down! Ostensibly,

What's next can't be worse...


With any luck, our

Failure as a species won't

End in extinction.


But if it does, hey—

At least I've enjoyed all these

Fantastic haiku!

A haiku a day

Keeps the doctor away! We'll

Ride this out okay

Poltroon, archaic,

An old word for a coward.

Thank you Nabokov.

Rayquaza subdued,

One Pokémon left to catch:

The roaming bastard.

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-12-07 11:04:53


So long since my last

Pokemon that I did catch!

Moon, Sun, White and Black...


Thought I'd complete all,

But it was no easy task!

Winter's coming in...


Maybe I'll relapse.

With Rayquaza and Snorlax.

Hunt them down en masse.

Christmas is coming.

So you'd better be prepared.

Yes, this is a threat.

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-12-08 14:29:20


I'm a prepper yeah!

Thirty kilos of fine rice.

Christmas is ready.

Twice on the front page.

What I managed this cycle.

There's always next year.

I went two for two

This year, so that's pretty much

The highlight for me.


That said, the fact that

I only released two tracks

Kind of bums me out.


Guess I'll just have to

Echo the sentiment of

"There's always next year."

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-12-10 05:54:17


I don't mean to front!

Just turn the page and live on!

Free until you zonk!

A challenge issued

"Listen without growing tired"

Met, to my chagrin

Response to A Haiku a Day 2020-12-11 06:17:42


Ghastly pastimes go,

Bleak pantomime lights shifting,

Computerlit woe.

This weather is strange,

Like the stripes of a zebra,

Rainclouds and sunlight.
