Deconstructionism

it just goes to prove
that the pen is mightier
than any damn sword

Tricky Linguistics.

Yellow

bananas egg yolks
school buses taxis cheeses
and diamonds sometimes

Banana
potassium source
preferred by monkeys worldwide
(I can't back that up)

Bananaphone.

Orange

fire yams carrots
oranges (obviously)
peaches and pumpkins

Jack-o'-lantern
smiling grotesquely
eyes flickering with malice
a pumpkin no more

Red

carpets blood stop signs
apples little riding hoods
hearts rubies cherries

The Red Carpet
I suppose you can't
have one of gold and diamonds
let's be practical...

Acting

not lying, you know
a facsimile of Truth
or something like that

An instructive video: Shakespeare Master Class.

Complaint, Response, Compensation

Complaint
no images here
only gray (and some green) text
what's the deal with that?

Response
my apologies
I guess I've been too lazy
to add a picture

Compensation (Rainbow)
red orange yellow
green blue and violet too
arched in a gray sky

Six Word Memoir

somewhat surreal
eulogizing myself now
will it fit later?

Stella Carter: a Memoir in Six Words
Read, wrote, repeated more than needed.

That was a fun tag, brought to me by Book Calendar. I pass it on to Nature Shows and Dreams, Paul Burman, Sounds of Memory, The Anatomy of Construction, and The View from Here.

Ode to a Brownie

oh fudgey delight!
alas for the New Year's vow
that makes me shun thee

Confession
ice cream was consumed
during the making of that
previous haiku

Edouard Manet

he painted people
not waterlilies or trains
like that Monet guy
