Summer Haiku

It’s July and according to our sun clock it’s well over 100 degrees F.  There’s no use in complaining, right?  Let’s make the most of the steamy temps and do something constructive.  How about composing a haiku with a summer theme?  I’ll start:

One hundred degrees

It’s July in Michigan

I think I’m melting


Who will rescue me?

Air temp dangerously high

Cherry popsicle


Go ahead,  give it a try.


Thursday Haiku

Today is Thursday

One more day ’til the weekend

Boy, I like Fridays

Alright folks, this is yet another example of a poorly constructed haiku poem and all around bad blog entry. Haiku should be witty, clever and thought-provoking. Mine is, well…..none of the above . Perhaps I should blame it on a gray and drizzly autumn afternoon or maybe I should petition the reader to submit his or her own haiku? Sound good? One quick rule : it has to contain something pertaining to autumn. Oh, and one more thing: it has to be better than mine. Or not. Whatever. It doesn’t really matter does it? Frankly, just write something.

Ok? On your mark. Get set. Haiku!

My First Post

Hi.  How are you?  My name is Jeff.  Welcome to my new blog.  I have decided to give myself exactly 4 minutes per day to post something interesting even though there’s a slim chance of that actually happening.   But, what have I got to lose?  So, without further adieu

My first post:

It’s the middle of September.  Cooler weather is just around the corner.   While at times ( during the warm summer months) I find myself clenching a tall, cold mug of a fine stout or ale, I don’t believe my masculinity is at stake admitting to dreaming of that delicious creamy Autumn delight: Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Happy September!
