"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Great poems. I've done some experimenting with poetry lately too. Maybe I'll have to give Haiku a try. I'm sure it would not be near as wonderful as yours.

These are WONDERFUL! I literally laughed out loud for quite a while on reading these. Great post. Thanks! from hot and humid KY.

Oh those are good. I hope it works and it stops raining. We're having the opposite problem, our tap water turned muddy yesterday 'cause I may or may not have forgotton to turn off the sprinkler.

Excellent haiku. Especially the sinking Nubian. That one made me laugh out loud while I was eating ice cream. A nearly disastrous situation!

Dear Claire,
I hope it did not come out your nose.

Can't think, can't stop laughing. You need supervision at the best of times, even more so on rainy days.

Marigold - fortunately not. My little Lucky Nickel wants to try haiku. She wants to use those little template cards that you are using. Will you tell her where to find them? Please?
