#May-be-A-B … Cutting (a verse)

maybeAB~-~C

Cutting it fine with a couplet in rhyme is not quite my cup of tea perhaps

but a carafe of good coffee with a plate of banoffee ice cream and a free play of craps

might create an occasion of casual celebration and cause chuckl’ation and cheer

and coincidentally these words were not meant to be, and they happen to be closing here.

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!
