Saturday's Haiku

I have been on the site Haiku For You and might start submitting to their site as I enjoy it. I like the way they use pictures (which is something I thought of doing independently) and the way they have fun contemporary references. They are very easy to do with a picture in front of you. Whether they are any good I don't mind as I just enjoy doing them.

(There is a little seat and den at the side of this allotment shed)
Secret Hideyhole

In my allotment
Contemplating my patch and
Garden of Eden

Ready to Start the Day

Fur like unmade bed
Peeping under the covers
Waiting for your walk


One story building
But between the covers
Story of the world
Gypsy Men or You Can Spin My Waltzer Anytime
His blue eyes meet mine
As he turns the spinning car
Faster and faster
English Cactus
On my windowsill
An English garden beyond
Desert flowers bloom

I like that one, it made me laugh - humorous and so so true - maybe you could start a line in deep humour haiku.
They are great - and the pics are good too. You are very creative, Bev. It's a real buzz reading your blog.

I love your haiku. Nothing is sacred :) I like the gypsy one.

I did the last one after seeing France's lovely pic of her flowering Xmas cactus. Didn't know cactus's could flower like this and thought they were some sort of exotic houseplant.
