Summer promises
What only Christmas will give.
My early Present.

She poured down rain anyway.

This is my entry for TJ’s Household HaiKu Challenge this weekend. I had a Car Wash in mind until it started to… well, you know. Why don’t you give it a go and pop over there to see what he’s up to. You’ll be glad you did. He’s decided to switch it up a bit. I’ll let him explain…

Hi all. I am shaking things up a little in TJ’s household haiku. From now on I will be expanding the prompt with two options (you only need to select one of the options)…

  1. A photo prompt without explanation – use anything in the shot as an inspiration and surprise us!
  2. A word prompt – use it somehow in your haiku.

You don’t have to include the word if you want to just use the picture as an inspiration or you don’t have to reference the picture if you use the word. Or you can use both.” -TJ


For TJ’s Household Haiku – Phone

Smart Phone, Dumb People


Once again, I’m a few days late in finishing my latest entry to TJ’s Latest Challenge. Oh well…. sue me. I love the challenges he gives and just about every post he puts up on his wonderful Blog, including THIS celebration of his 500th Post. Yay, TJ!!!

As for this last Friday’s Challenge, the word was ‘Phone’. I’ll let TJ clue you in on what’s expected.

“Perhaps you have fonder attachments to this wonder of modern communication. Do not be put off by my fear of the object. I would love to know your own “connection” with the telephone in your life.” -TJ

So, without further Ado… my entries for the week. Enjoy.


Picture of my Phone

Glasses on my Computer

Tools to see the World


Always on the Phone!

Drivers swerve as they Facebook.

“Get Off the Damned Phone!!”

Texty Lovers

Heads bowed, hands folded

Two together but Apart

Their eyes never meet.
