LATE NIGHT HAIKU

LATE NIGHT HAIKU

(BEFORE GOING HOME)

Late night working shift,

If you allow it, minds drift…

Waiting my relief!

Dry and scratchy throats,

Why can’t it just stay colder?

“Yo-yo” seasoning!

Track work in N scale,

Small and very exacting…

Magnifying glass!!!

Nasty tasting rind,

Using teeth to peel oranges…

Forgot to wash off!

–Jonathan Caswell

TEETERING ON THE BRINK

TEETERING ON THE BRINK

(A haiku attempt)

See-saw freeze and thaw,

Temperature’s near the brink…

An ice-skating rink?

Salt and sanding when’?

Watching for ice-forming signs…

Balance delicate!

State “D.O.T. trucks

Condition monitoring…

Courageous yellow.**

–Jonathan Caswell

** NOTE–In the author’s state, The State D.O.T. trucks and equipment ae painted yellow with blue trim.

HONKIE HAIKU

HONKIE HAIKU

(i’S A WHITE FOLK!)

His poor heart is crushed

She doesn’t say much when rushed….

His chances are mush!

–J.E.C. (Author initials to separate haiku)

“SLINGING SLANG”

Hispanic…gringo,

Nipponese…round eyes,

On the streets…HEY, YOU!

–J.E.C.
