Lament in Haiku Form for a Dead Eraser

Today I did stab,
an eraser so white, pure,
it did bleed blue ink.

I once dated a man named Larry
He one day asked me to marry
Though he was a real honey
He hadn't much money
So, I wed his cousin Harry

This little tubby cousin 
Of the dolphins has no beak.

He’s very shy and talks, 
Not with a click, but with a sneezy squeak!

Technology Overcomes Books 5 Word Challenge

TECHNOLOGY has finally overcome STORYBOOKS;
psychic VISIONS and scientists have foretold.
COUSIN prefers these new-fangled technologies; 
it's a tiny book stronghold.

The Okapi

I went to the Zoo and saw an Okapi,
Unlike the Hare, he did no hippity-hoppy.
But, like his cousin the Giraffe,
It truly had to make me laugh,
Its long tongue kept its ears from getting sloppy.

Call Me Cousin

I'm short and most costumes don't fit
Halloween found me in a snit
     But I have my answer now
     I just comb my long hair down
Add glasses and I'm Cousin It

Where Stars Are

By everyone else, he seemed quite a bother.
But to me, he wasn’t, couldn’t, isn’t;
He, like me, was often distant.
He wanted to look through my telescope at the stars,
but it was daylight - not where stars are.

Emma, where are you, where did you go 

You were sitting here by my side 

Then, all of a sudden gone 

We never had a chance 

To sing one more song 

Because you left 

Without a

The Coryphee Cephalopod

Strokes of green and yellow,
Come out just to say hello. 
Ballet in the sand; 
Look at the position of his hand. 
Bold and Brash; 
This dancing is trash.
His routine came to a close; 
Look at his position, he is frozen.

Loving Hug (2005)

I had a dream of my cousin I love
Out of all my siblings she reaches well above
I’ve loved her since she was born
Distance has never torn
Last night I felt love in her hug
Warmth and captures in a loving snug

For Sheeto

Humble,bumble bee
One season's life,fly free

Working the summer scene
Unless crowned,as May Queen

Sometime cousin cuckoo,comes to stay
Her offspring eggs to lay

A nursemaid,then,Spring to Fall
'Til Winter's death knell,calls

The Yucca

                 Long slender blades, sort of a cactus, kissing cousin to a palm tree
                             Indians years ago, used to make soap from it
                         On our ranch in New Mexico, we called it "Soap Weed"

Comb Over

Z Z Top and Cousin It took the right approach
     Dark sun glasses and beards detract from scraggly hair
Next time my motley hairdo meets with reproach
     Combing forward I’ll consider, sparing the Nair

Short Cousin poem by hayley webb-myers| Details |

On the spot 7

Flowers bright
Colours everywhere 
Cant help but stop
And soak in the fresh air.

Green trees 
All tall and proud
Bright big sun
In a sky with no clouds.

Birds chirping
Flying around the trees
Would be great
To be that free.

Let history be the guidelines of our time to remain united.
Our border in the region is only if we do not go visit our neighborhood.
There is no barrier.
We are in Nusantara will remain united.
There is no race and religion that could disunite us.
