A VARIETY PACK (HAIKU)

Model trains running

In a larger scaled garden

Model people’s fun!

Overheard much deals

How fertilizer is spread

Figures in your head

Steam train videos

Take us to climes we’ve not know

World travel TV

Depressed people do

What they can and not fall through

…The cracks

–Jonathan Caswell

NOT STAYING UP LATE TONIGHT!

NOT STAYING UP LATE…

(Haiku)

Staying up too late,

Makes no sense for me tonight…

Busy tomorrows!

Up early mornings.

Blogging till morning sunlight…

Too sleepy to wake!

Doctors appointments

Tomorrow my beloved

Gets her full work up!

Colonoscopies–

Don’t you love them so early?

A draining event!

I drive the Missus

To her doctors appointments—

But not crazy….MUCH!

–Jonathan Caswell

COLD SNAP HAIKU

“COLD SNAP” HAIKU

Pity poor peepers,

Stiff cloacas do not help!

When bodies are too.

Snow blowers and plows

Get one last fling before Spring..

.Or rather–in it!

Snow and rain the same,

Draining experiences…

Both can change your plans!

–Jonathan Caswell

“THREE WEST”…EPISODE # 1-A

EPISODE  # 1-A….OF “THREE WEST”

(Mostly haikus!)

The hardest of rules

Making someone love yourself

Must love yourself…first

–J.E.C.

Enforced “No Contact”

Fingertips brushing his back…

Transient friendships!

–J.E.C.

Seisures are in life,

Protect from harm sufferers…

Chemical stress pops!

Friendships grow quickly

Growing season shorter here

Blossoms blow away!

Warehoused by our choice,

The mentally ill find voice…

Counselors make (it) real!

Say little when fed,

Be glad for a made-up  bed…

Be docilely led.

–Jonathan Caswell

COAXING THE EDGES

COAXING THE EDGES

Antenna indoors

Pulling in the network more

The dge of morals?

–Jonathan Caswell

MORE ON GETTING OLDER

MORE ON GETTING OLDER

(A man’s point of view0

Eye of the beholder,

While passionate grow colder…

Elder statesmen know!

Cane prerequisite

To stable ambulation…

Tipsy–just in act.

Chewing broccoli

Crisp, stir-fried, begs good dentures…

Resort to gumming!  🙂

It’s all in uyour head,

That is literally true…

Flesh is old, relaxed!

Holding hands with wife

Not always wanted but need,

“Hold on…companion!”

–Jonathan Caswell

POET’S HAIKU

POET’S HAIKU

World concerns brought forth

Who really listens or cares

Profit selling wares!

–JEC

Jesus died for all

Not all will come to be saved…

Everyone must choose!

–JEC

Blending words to fit

Intimate, growing ideas…

Poetry lives on!

–JEC

Softer words appear,

Thinking of a real-live doll,

Hugable by me!  🙂

–Jonathan Caswell

HAIKU FOR ECOSYSTEMS

HAIKU FOR ECOSYSTEMS

Fancy the peepers

Leap-frogging in vernal pools

Short life, sweet singing!

–J.E.C.

Awful garbage left

For a Cause folks are bereft

Of love for themselves!

–J.E.C.

Fine people are we,

Who force others to comply

Practice we ignore!

–J.E.C.

Behold birds singing

Focussed on their nest building,

Preparing futures!

–Jonathan C.

Lions, tigers, bears

Don’t put on arrogant airs

They don’t play at God.

–Jonathan Caswell

Salamanders’ moon

Will you help them cross the road?

Salamander soup?

–J. E. Caswell

What is mankind worth?

Just the top of a food chain?

Love humankind first!

–Jonathan Caswell

HUMOROUS HAIKU

HUMOROUS HAIKU

Punsters punting shells,

Travel canals very well…

‘Til football hits mud.

–J.E.C.

Humerus leg bone,

Funny bone, the elbow is…

Wack it and you’ll see!

–J.E.C.

Bowlfulls of jelly

Don’t make fun of their belly…

Happy if feet seen!

–J.E.C.

Puns are pun-ishing

Making fun of other folks…

Try them on, for size!

–Jonathan E. Caswell

LOSING TRACK

LOSING TRACK

(of time)

Plugged in laptop runs,

Cavorting with blogger joy…

Time runs at warp speed!

–J.E.C.
