Friday Haiku - worthless

Haiku Friday

This Friday Haiku,
is of insufficient depth,
to mean anything.

It's a placeholder,
a sham, a fraud, of no worth,
but to take up space.

To mark time, pretend,
assume the mantle of worth,
covering nothing.

A promise unkept,
the assignment, unfullfilled,
no preparation.

I should be sorry,
just like a Republican.
How Presidential.

*giggle* Sorry, I couldn't help it :)

So well written for no preparation! Hope you're making some headway packing!

I agree, for no preparation, what an elegant piece of work.

No reason for the green, it was just what I felt like doing at the time. People can take whatever meaning they want out of it.

Sandy: Thanks. Almost finished. Which is why I was unprepared for the Haiku thing. I really meant to do a deep and meaningful Haiku today - I had promised somebody - but it wasn't to be.

Fred: Thank you. Elegant. I couldn't aspire to a better complement.

Casdok: You're busy, too. Besides, aren't we planning a secret rendezvous in London?

Mishi: I *heart* you, too.

Janet: For real. This was off the top of my pointy little head. Well, you can tell by my picture, it's not TOO pointy ...

Cleverly conceived and executed ;--)

I'm usually 'unprepared' for Haiku until I sit down at the computer ... then I let whatever's on my mind show up. Today it was TENNIS ... twice! (I was hoping for a different topic for my 2nd blog, but such is life).

Thanks for stopping by Small Reflections earlier.
Hugs and blessings,
