#May-be-A-B … Arriving with A haiku

maybeAB~-~A

Arriving bees nav-

igate nectar-giving blooms

bumbling in with May.

While I’m alphabetically blogging again this month linking with #May-be-A-B over at SwishingUp, I can’t promise a haiku every day, as I might do something else or different each day. Today I happened to be outside skywatching when I noticed the first bumble bees I’ve seen so far this year. No doubt there have been some earlier in Spring, especially during April’s mini-heatwave, but I wasn’t outside much and hadn’t noticed any bees. Anyway, observing nature inspired this haiku, along with the letter A.

A to Z Limerick Y

Yonder denotes near or far

Maybe distant as bright shining star

Though it’s not always clear

Meaning by over there

Defined measure would sure raise the bar.

A to Z Limerick X

‘Xpressing letter X in a verse

Seems inexplicably absurd

If it’s marking a kiss

That too seems so remiss

While a spot’s marked by X so I’ve heard.

A to Z Limerick W

Wombling along as I might

I should try not to get so uptight

When observers might stare

Although why should they there

As if clearing up litter’s not right!

A to Z Limerick V

Vertically challenged I sit

Wondering how might I ever get fit

With each day’s rise and fall

Efforts failing and stalled

And an ever increasing to-do list.
