haiku time

Know what today is?
Just in case you weren't aware:
World Blog Haiku Day

Not doing that much
Just sitting, barely moving
Still sticky with sweat

They Might Be Giants
New album eight days away
They'll pass too slowly

Next Maryland trip
May now be delayed one week
If colleagues consent

This week Laura takes
Step three of medical boards.
I don't envy her.

Perfectionist's fear
Growing moment by moment
Yet unjustified

Precision, balance,
Economy of language:
Haiku teaches these.

Brevity of life
Muse of typical haiku
Atypic haiku

Bypass my journal
There is no haiku to see
'Til I have vodka

Your haikus provide
Syllabic portrait of life
Poem perfection

Flattery surplus!
"Poem perfection"? Not quite.
But still, I thank you.
