blues outside the pool
better than country music
still it isn’t jazz
on your left soul sister
right ocean live guitar
sweet home chicago
so embarrassing underdressed
in your bikini
would be wealthy if
only i had a nickel
every single time
southern ducks high noon
mullet swims under duck trying
to pick a fight
duck taking bread from
mullet seems both can share half
turtle comes along
not in a bad mood
maybe he placed bets on who
would win fowl or fish
ducks catching in mouth
even though i’m bad shot &
it’s always windy
three ducks bat the bread
they have their own baseball team
instead of dining
bread hits the beak goes flying
little rascal’s dog
father allows him wherever
he wants to go
front back circles bird
toward hotel another bird
allows his dog lead
i love a man
let’s his dog go where he wishes
thinks about others
he hollers his dog
is afraid of the water
everyone must be
can see only one
in the ocean for a mile
Very nice. I especially like “Wedding in the Sand”–but I’m a blues fan . . .
I also like the lines “he hollers his dog / is afraid of the water / everyone must be.”
it was a cold day in september. the dog knew that.
I can see the ducks and dog in my mind-you *paint* such wonderful images with your words-thank you!!
Wonderfully descriptive Errin, I really loved it! Have a wonderful day!
thank-you wendell : you have a wonderful day!
if you could just say that every day.one day it may come true.
not romantic / so embarrassing underdressed / in your bikini ;oP
soul sister is just not a very romantic song to play during the wedding ceremony: i could be wrong.
She’s BAAACKKKKK-yay! Xo
xoxoxoxo sirena…i really can’t come back right now, but i took a break from the movers & the realtors & the closers & the rain coming thru the roof & the hammering outside for 2 months , because i remembered it was my anniversary here, so i typed something…
if i was cinderella, i have a few hours before freezng rain /snow, b/c the wireless will go off. heaven help me if the electricity goes off, like they just said on tv for 2 days.
I didn’t see the baseball parts.
that’s understandable.you had to be there..be a bad pitcher & somehow when i threw, they hit to 1st or 3rd base instead of catching….i think they were playing w/ me.. then they would run to pick it up,eat…
I thought you mentioned it in the haiku’s somewhere.
i did but it wasn’t as good as being there..i should have filmed the mighty ducks or was that hockey
Hey Miss errinspelling. How ya doing? I love Sweet Home Chicago. So many great versions, including Blues Brothers. Saw where you mentioned you had to take a break for a bit. I’m nearing that point, I think. Readership hasn’t changed in months. Bummer. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get a second wind. Hope your doing well. I miss the muse.
The imagery is so magical and arresting. Lovely words, Errin!
thank-you very much!
Enjoyed the haiku! Nice images. 🙂
