Play with my haiku
Or is it a Senryu?
Make it what you will!

I will have my fun
twisting your words all about
I will make it mine

I will tease each line
and make it do my bidding
with a wink and kiss

And when I am done
it will really be something
you don't want to miss.

That’s my kind of girl
Ready to give ‘ku a whirl
Making it her own

Pleasing with each line
Your word playing is so fine
You're a true Master

Now that we are done
Let’s give it another run
You’re a lot of fun!

You may rue the day
you asked this girl to play
I can forever

I 'ku like a dove
I warble all about love
on my wings of words

I'm so versatile
I write about everything
and nothing at all

I can make you laugh
you know how I make you cry
I will make you think

I am game to play
Just see if you can keep up
this will be great fun

I’ve had some regrets
Playing with you is not one
Lettuce continue

Admirable scribe
Your play is not for the birds
‘Nor flights of fancy

Emotional rides
A carnival of laughter
An ocean of tears

Flexibility
In loving and in writing
You make a man smile

There are games I like
Mastery has eluded me
Still it is “great fun”

'ku, 'ku, back at chu.
God bless me, got a tissue?
Something in the air

I find it pleasing
but it has got me sneezing
Can't be allergic

That would be tragic
I would be reduced to tears
if I could not play

It must be a moat
of dust from my muse again
anxious to begin

All in a dither
getting her words together
so she can spin them

She can twist them too
and fold and flap them around
like a flag flapping

I feel like clapping
This is just too much fun stuff
to keep to myself

I will share with you
a great big pile of Senyru
Show what you can do

A ‘ku ‘ku choo-choo
Loads of poor defenseless trees
Just to catch your sneeze

Maybe it’s my scent
‘Eau de defenseless Musk Deer’
Makes one defenseless

A cat-astrophe
An utter musk-astrophe
If you could not play

Dust-busting poet
Muse trapped in a canister
Poor defenseless muse

Your feathers ruffled
Voicing defenseless tirade
Over cabin tales

You’re a poetess
Words as origami art
Never defenseless

Your applause is heard
Myriad entertainments
Defensive laughter

Sharon share alike
Pile it high as you wish
I will try to climb

my heart is heavy
he thinks infidelity
it is poetry

flirtatious perhaps
but its more my muse set free
innocently

When he gets this way
I want to rattle his cage
Well, seriously

Drop that bomb shell now
right during the Holiday.
Refuse to talk

My feelings are hurt
I want to talk it all out
he just lets it hang

So I suck it up
Save it for another day
when he says sorry

Until then I write
It is all I know to do
you know how it is

I'll squeeze my eyes shut
and think rainbows and bubbles
Remember awesome

Don't forget to breathe
It always works out just fine
Don't forget to breathe

Not too much to say
Green Monsters are insecure
They don’t rhyme with love

A few brief moments
Spell not the death of marriage
They’re just brief moments

A jealous man stares
With not a rational thought
Breeding misery

You speak what you will
Tactful is as tactful does
Maybe say nothing

Dealing with feelings
Two should be talking not one
Pangs from that which hangs

Keeping feelings in
Keeps the heart on the outside
Sorry should be real

Writing is mindful
Writing is good for the soul
I know how it is…

Close your eyes lightly
Let your colors dance freely
Awesome becomes you

“Don't forget to breathe
It always works out just fine
Don't forget to breathe”

breathing easier
everyone acting normal
it could just blow over

Eldest son coming
will join us with grandparents
for turkey dinner

Daughter with boyfriend
His first time with "the family"
They are serious

No Dinner to fix
I am really good with that
What a lot of work

Being with family
make a special Holiday,
and friends warm the heart

Remembering when
we would gather at Grandma's
Mom and Dad cooking

Everything set
and is perfectly matching
like a commercial

House full of people
and always a child or two
eating too much food

Around the table
after dinner we play cards
laughing telling jokes

Thankful for those times
the way that I was brought up
those were good old days

Breathing fresher air
as the dragon lays sleeping
is good news for you

Family gathers
and smiles replace down-turned frowns
all getting the bird  

“Being with family
make a special Holiday,
and friends warm the heart”

So happy for you
The roller coaster is parked
Amusements remain

Do have a wonderfully peaceful and joyful time with your family, Miss Lori.

Thank you for the warm season's greeting. The very best of everything to you.

I'm too pooped to 'ku
right at this very moment
I catch you later.

Big change in the plans
Husband will dine with daughter
Mine will have to work

That leaves first born son
as my escort for the meal
at the nursing home

Dad will be happy
I hope that Mom will be awake
so she can see us

I will be happy
the food will be very good
there will be laughter

Relax my good friend
Your attentions are a gift
I fully enjoy

I know many here
But there's no one here like you
You have no bias

Party and have fun
Take no crap from anyone
See you and see me...


...Bluesy

Happy Turkey Day!
I hope you have a good time
and you drink some wine

May you share your day
with people that mean a lot
and have lots of laughs

Pie and some coffee
after the dinner is through
make conversation

Make good memories
save them for a rainy day
and write poetry

Happy Thanksgiving
May every thing go smooth
and you get a nap

I wish you the same
Francis Coppola Merlot
Only two years old

A favorite wine
I always buy two bottles
I just never know

Not too many left
But then the ones who remain
Share many a laugh

Sweet conversations
Amidst the scent of candles
Wine glasses glowing

Loving rainy days
Even when the sun is out
Poetry inspires

“Happy Thanksgiving
May everything go smooth
and you get”...some sleep

Shopping isn't fun
I always buy the cheap one
I don't do Black Friday

I like to wrap gifts
I learned how at a gift shop
corners sharp and tight

I like red ribbon
and a big red bow on top
Santa Claus paper

I like to surprise
Put little gift in big box
lots of news paper

Stocking stuffer fun
random trinkets on a whim
whimsy in a sock

Getting in the mood
for Christmas Decorating
Where to put the tree?

Want something different
maybe get something brand new
put it in the yard.

Clean off the front porch
and make it look like Christmas
is welcoming you

Shopping is a mood
I once got into that mood
Her mood was changing

I too liked wrapping
Thinking of the children’s smiles
Now those smiles are gone

Curling gift ribbons
with the inner edge of scissors
just like Granny did

Playing Santa Claus
A Main Street phenomenon
Plenty of pillows

Handing candy out
Watching tooth rot on the spot
Sponsored by dentist

Never a phony
Always a fresh-cut Pine tree
Bring it home screaming

Keeping tree watered
quiets the screaming for days
Must not wake the kids

Poinsettia cloth
decorating the table
Good mix of colors

All things in the past
Peace, love, and joy are elsewhere
Porch has long been gone

Christmas sounds lonely
"Peace, love, and joy are elsewhere"
They should be with you

If I could send them
in packages big and small
by priority

They'd be there today
making you warm all over
giving you a smile.

May the scent of pine
always serve to remind you
of Granny ribbons

May your wine glass glow
light blue from the computer
as you do your 'Ku

There is only one
Away for twenty-five years
Soon I will see her

Poetry will go
No need for studied wordplay
I’ll always miss you

Your gift is your words
They find me at speed of light
Always give me smiles

Wafting of Pine scent
will bring memories of you
Warm and kind my friend

"May your wine glass glow
light blue from the computer
as you do your 'Ku"

      ...and your’s, Lori Rhoden  **clink**

Reunions are great
with loved ones beside us
catching up lost time

love is elastic
it stretches through out all time
brings hearts together.

What is there to miss
I am always here waiting
on your golden words

They greet me each day
I take them in with coffee.
part of my routine.

Would not want to start
my day without you in it
giving me support

"Clink" to you my friend
and what a good one you are
you deserve a star.

It has been so fun
writing all these 'Ku's with you
it has been a treat

May today find you
in a blessed state of mind
all through the day.

So many stories
What everyone’s been doing
Lives intermingling

All encompassing
A family’s shroud of love
Protective and sure

Good to know you’re here
I enjoy bending your ear
This ‘ku stuff is great

Regular I’m not
But lately I seem to be
Here! NOT in bathroom! >>>---->  

It’s not me you need
Everyone is inside you
One’s ‘on’ when one’s ‘off  >>>---->  

A toast to Lori
That Rhoden gal from Kansas
Who writes like the wind

I too have had fun
Keeping these ‘ku’s on the run
You’ve taught me quite well!   >>>---->  

“May today find you
in a blessed state of mind
all through the day”

                ...and you, Miss Lori  
(Sorry about the centering...bad habit!)

An empty blue sea
all except for 2 or 3
other talking heads.

We bob on the waves
just talking to each other.
Feels like we’re alone.

Where did they all go?
Living their lives without us
in the Big Blue Sea.

The Sea used to be
full of all kinds of people
writing everything.

Glad to ‘Ku with you
Something fun for you and me
in the big blue sea.

Two is fine with me
as we sail upon the sea
I dislike a crowd

Rising and falling
with an occasional splash
We’re never alone

Life gets in the way
Longing for their “golden days”
Like some ‘old ones’ do

The sea has dried up
The ships have rotted away
Not even trash floats

“Glad to ‘Ku with you
Something fun for you and me
in the big blue sea”

…. ‘Ku-’ku-’ka-’choo, Lori Rhoden

It's 3:45
and my muse is still a snooze.
What will I write now?

Going back to work
after a long holiday
will be hard to do.

I bought some makeup
I can't wait to try it out
today is the day.

I will try to hide
my lack of sleep and my age
with gobs of war paint.

I'll paint on a smile
that I hope lasts me awhile
until I wake up.

I'll be sleep walking
for a few hours today
before I perk up.

A small price to pay
to send a lil' 'Ku your way
on this pretty day.

Yawn I must and will
the calling of my people
as they will yawn too.

I'll try not to nod
my cappuccino will help
to wake myself up.  

To yous as you snooze
all warm in your bed asleep
may you wake smiling.

Looks like we’re both up
in a tug-of-war with time
and time is winning

Income is a joy
Working for it can be rough
Still it has rewards

I can’t buy ‘make-up’
Avon calling or store bought
She’s still mad at me

A ‘pancake’ breakfast
Slop it all on good and thick
Gets you through the day

Paint your smile pretty
That should be easy for you
Your smile says it all

Walking in your sleep
or talkative in your sleep
Both done with caution


“A small price to pay
to send a lil' 'Ku your way
on this pretty day” >>>------→

Rousting the household
Kick-starting the family
Few start on first kick

Don’t nod in oatmeal
It’ll make you SO crazy
Alison says so

Hit the sack at four
Be back up at ten ‘o clock
with a question mark

...just bein' Bluesy
