Just a high school English teacher who never quite got over her dream of becoming an author. :)
Three troublesome traitors traveled to town
Talking together, taking their time.
Tonight, tragedy threatened to take the throne.

The mirror showed a reflection that wasn’t my own. And I couldn’t have been more pleased. Peering from the cloudy depths of the rippled glass was Janice Holbrook, my nemesis, my archenemy, my bully. And she deserved it. No one could deny, she absolutely deserved it.

“Yes, I’m here. How may I help you?”
“This is an emergency, you hear me? A real emergency!” The voice on the other end is deep, scratchy, and vaguely…French.

My lessons are finally done.
At last it is time for some fun!
Oh wait, but there’s grading
And laundry invading
It’s Monday—I’m back to square one.

Every night at midnight, the purple clouds came out to dance with the blushing sky. At least that’s what my grandmother told me. She was full of stories, my Lita.

Sunlight dappled, orange tasseled
Forest floor, footsteps sure
I’ve certainly been here before.
Crunching leaves, woodland streams

Midnight sequin sky
Whitecaps, crashing ocean deep
How many mentions of blue
in album, “Lover”?
Author's Note: During the blue haiku challenge, I was aiming to write a haiku everyday. This was the one I came up with on December 13th.

The blue of the sky
just as stars rise, it’s almost
like falling in love
Behind rolls of clouds
Past lightning strikes and thunder
Is the sky still blue?
As I held her hand
I would never forget how
her blue eyes held me
Hot summer picnic
Run to the cooler for snacks
The blue ones are gone
