Senryu and I

Making Snafus

I smiled, puffed, inhaled

My lungs caught fire, my eyes burned

Careful with that weed!

..........................................

Tried to catch his eye

Awkward!!! He hurried away.

Gave him the stink eye

.........................................

I wrote an Haiku

Thinking it was Senryu

Oi, what a snafu!

...........................................

I sat through the class

Biology seemed quite odd

It was Chemistry

.............................................

I planted the seeds

Gave tomatoes love and care

The trees yielded beans!

...............................................................................

  • The whole weed thing passed me by. This makes me feel OK about that :-D xx

  • To the first I would simply add, "be careful around anything encouraging you to breathe in fire." Tried it once as a young lad. My brothers had decided to find out what smoking was like. They took a piece of notebook paper, rolled up a bunch of dry grass from the field behind our house, lit the end, & took turns taking a drag. I was fourth & last in line. All I got was a mouth full of fire. I don't smoke. My older brother Terry was at a home high school football game where a woman was smoking a cigarette behind him. He turned & asked if he could have a pull from it. She said, "Sure," & handed it to him. He pulled the lit end of the cigarette from the filter end which he handed back to her with a simple, "Thanks." Enjoyed all of your senryu snafus, btw.
