Here we go again.   I am going to be serious this week.  Feel my haiku!  Thanks as ever to Colleen for her prompts.  Check her blog out out here.

This weeks words are Gift and Song.

 

Intoxicating, lost

in the heady gift of song

melting to her voice

 

or maybe

 

thanks, the gift of song

an itunes voucher from gran

My phone’s an android

 

And back to serious

 

Song bird, gilded cage

Trapped, craving the blue expanse

I gift her freedom

 

Then back to silly, using Serenade instead of song

 

She smiles, crimson cheeks

He serenades from below

Dad’s Chamber pot thrown 

 

And one last Serious one

 

truly you’re a gift

you fill my heart with such song

My children my life

 

Ok ok one last silly one, for balance…

 

other worldly voice

Children crying dogs howling

clown under your bed

 

Think that’s quite enough for one  week…


More shenanigans?

More miserable and inappropriate limericks – Not for the kiddies

End of days #writephoto challenge
