Monday Morning #Haiku 161 — Green (2)

Plethora of greens
Embrace the dryad in you
Breathe that verdancy

Friday Fictioneers — Nineteen years later

Many thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for choosing one of my pictures as the Photo Prompt for Friday Fictioneers this week.

Last week, some of you will remember that I wrote some alternate lyrics to the song “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic” but, because of the 100-word restriction, had to end mid-verse and complete my word count with the promise of a further instalment for this week. Well I meant that as a joke, but a few people said they were looking forward to Part II, so here it is!

For those who missed “The Crazy Bears’ Battle” last week and wonder what on earth is happening below, here’s the link. And please feel free to sing along to both instalments.

Genre: Alternative song lyrics
Words: 100

THE TOMBOY AND HOMICIDAL DOLL’S VENGEANCE

If grown lads go to the potting shed
They’re in for a huge surprise
If grown lads go to the potting shed
It could end in their demise. 

For every year since skiving from school
They’ve met up there for certain
Because today’s the day they
Commemorate that battle.
 

Laughter time for lazy louts.
The pot-smoking hillbillies are having
A dopey time today.

Watch that doll creep up on them
And see her snaggle-teeth go clickety-clack.
 

See her bite the lads with glee.
They’re off their heads alright,
They never feel a thing…

Epilogue: ‘Rich Compost For The Asparagus Bed’

Monday Morning #Haiku 158-160 — Foxgloves & Bees

Bumblebee size bells
Buzzing instead of ringing
Musical foxgloves
*
Bees drift somnolent
Bindweed climbs up foxglove stems
Gardener unwinds
*
Bees cart pollen home
Empty tubular bell blooms
Become pixie hats

Monday Morning #Haiku 157 — Potter’s Pots

Yearly pilgrimage
Expedition to buy plants
A simple pleasure

Monday Morning #Haiku 155 & 156 — Dandelion/Grandpa

Dandelion clocks
exist to taunt gardeners
and thrill herbalists.

Grandpa wears a hat
for fear of losing his hair
in a puff of wind.

#Tanka 32 — Storm

Charcoal clouds from north…
garden locked in somnolence
awaits first raindrops.
Storm hits, its broadside attack
an act of demolition.

Monday Morning #Haiku 154 — Cherry Blossom

Wedding photo shoot
Cherry blossom in churchyard
Nature obeys bride

Monday Morning #Haiku 152 & 153 — Seagull at First Light

Prehistoric shrieks…
Nightmare of pterodactyl
just a herring gull.

Rude awakening…
Seagull in hobnail boots
stomps across flat roof.

Monday Morning #Haiku 151 — Tulips (02)

Tulip sweet delight
Assortment of bold colours
Nature’s candy mix

Monday Morning #Haiku 150 — Sunbathing

This week’s haiku is dedicated to all of my blogging friends across the Pond whose skies are shrouded in grey. Sending you hugs, smiles, and spring cheer from the South of England 🙂 

Honeybee sunbathes,
double petal daffodil
its yellow lilo.
