For the Love of Haiku

Playing desert tennis
causes thundering headaches
and clouded judgement.

Wednesday already? I’m late this week with my contribution to We’ve had our first flurry of snow today in Southern England. My cacti are sheltering indoors, the tennis courts in the park are empty, and ice cream is the last thing on the menu.

Thank you, as usual, to adollyciousirony for hosting this event, and to everyone who contributed to the desert picture πŸ™‚

  1. Ice cream? I heard ice cream! It’s always on the menu no matter if it also appears to be on the ground, lol. Clouded judgement is right. And you don’t even have to play desert tennis to get it; contagious among the masses it reigns the sunniest or snowiest days everywhere, in my opinion. Love your opinion and your haiku πŸ™‚ I didn’t know about Novel Writing Winter, might add that to my pages. Thanks for the reading and writing fun, soul sister xo


    1. Ah, you didn’t know about Novel Writing Winter, as I only unveiled it as an idea yesterday, so the word hasn’t travelled far yet. Love to have you join in with this πŸ™‚ xox


      1. Can you believe I did not find this until TODAY! Holy Smoking changes are really screwing me up. Was hard enough as it was, foggy head & eyes. Sorry I missed it. xo


      2. And I will apologise for being most neglectful of you, and being incredibly behind reading your posts. Hope to catch up sometime next week, but am in demand over the coming weekend. xo
