Father Time


Today’s haikus have been penned by my father. For those of you who are newer to this blog, you can acquaint yourselves with my father here and here.

Once finished, he looked at me and said, “That was ten minutes of my life completely wasted.”

Thank you, father. For your wonderful holiday spirit and enthusiasm.

Tis nobler to write
A haiku, sonnet or two
Than suffer a sling

From a sore daughter
Whose feelings will fall wounded
From arrows heart bound

My duties unkept
And christmas cheer un-inbibed
So I wrest with words

Perchance to give dream
And pen proof to my first born
This small act of love

Here’s peace for this house
A gift for readers a’far
Christmas lives once more

  6. That’s it. I officially want to adopt your dad. I’m impressed that it only took 10 minutes for him to write those. Like Angella said, lucky, lucky girl.
