Poetry Bus Haiku - Sorry TFE

We were tasked with writing about either loneliness, or family skeletons for this weeks Poetry Bus ride. I went with the family fun. I've kept it brief, gone with the haiku - apologies to our honoured progenitor whom we all know detests this over used form. Sorry dude.

Family Skeleton Haiku

I get quite worried
that it will be me who they
never talk about.

Yes! I'm driving this week and TFE's computer is bust so maybe he won't know about the h---u - which I totally loved!

Dominic Rivron said...

Very apt haiku. I wish I had thought of it.

I spent the week trying to think of potty relatives I could write about - but had to take into account I've got a very unusual name! I could have been one google search away from deep doodoo had I,er, come up with any. :)

As for TFE and haiku, wait till he reads Enchanted Oak. 15 for the price of 1. lol!

Oh, I'm laughing aloud at this one! This is great, and I think even the TFE would appreciate it! Of course, he's out of commission right now, so you can sneak it in!

Titus - thanks :o)

Argent - Great prompt this week really enjoyed it... and sure, you're right, TFE will never know!

Dominic - any relation to the comic who shares your surname? Lol, think Enchanting Oak's offering might just tip TFE over the edge :o)

Karen - Am delighted it made you laugh!

I share TFE's mistrust of haiku but this one is very very good. Only one thing worse than being talked about...

Turn your back for five minutes and mutiny, anarchy, rebellion, and Hh, Hhh,Hhha, Hhhhai.. It's no good, I can't mention the H word.

If it wasn't a Hhha, but a very short poem I would say I liked it- mucho, but it's a Hhhaa, so I can't.

Sorry TFE :)
