HAIKU OOMPH 2


Customary rites
For modern day marriage;
Ancient following


Spring cleaning
Ritual seizures fling;
Fatigue turns to mock


Describe your day
Okay To-Do List;
Unfinished business loiter


Silence speaks easy
Nothing need be said;
Stillness obeys


Fruit basket full
Spiced variety;
Fortune cookie message


Lucky numbers
Lottery stakes;
Win or lose big time!


Laughter lingers
Kitchen commotion;
Menu plan review


Washing dishes
Racking and stacking;
Maximize usage


Decide now
Not to decide when;
Tentative passage


Supermarket queue
Long and winding road;
Impatience at check-out


Telephone call:
Can you come?
Where and why prompts


Sad dreary day
Old friend gone;
Heavenly recall


Eulogy unheard
Nobody came;
Sorry aftermath


Sanguine moment
Melancholy greets;
Sorrow weeping
