Haiku Mondays: Sleep


Welcome to another round of Haiku Mondays, in which participants post their best 5-7-5 creations for the chance to win a Chickory designed badge of honor and other possible fabulous prizes. The great and powerful Czar is hosting this week, so drop by his place and post a haiku or two in the comments. This week's topic is SLEEP, and the judging will be blind.

* * *

Hot tub, iced room, stiff
drink. Delay sweethearts’s plea. Sleep!
Uninterrupted.

Sprung from winter’s cold
cruel womb, newborn shoots bloom a
tribute to the sun.

Flash of kitchen knives
sunk deep into fattened flesh.
Psycho sous chef dreams.

Quite a visual. She has cellulite too? Every woman's nightmare.

Boxer: Very interesting photographer. The work is highly staged and manipulated, but painterly at the same time.

K9: I can bang around a bit on the drums, but you're going to have to sing.

Aunty: We'll miss your wonderful word-smithing. Hope you are hanging in there.

LOL,
looks like the knife wielding sous chef got your toe!
Happy Monday.

Very nice haiku. "psycho sous chef" really sounds good aloud.

Good afternoon Moi,

Wait a minute! Hot tub, iced room, stiff drink and somebody wants to sleep? Nooo say it ain't so.

@Aunty: If you hadn't said anything, I would not have noticed the cellulite.

moi said...

Fishy: Mmmmm . . . tastes like chicken!

Troll: Soilent Green is people!

Karl: That, Señor, is called "irony."

Happy Haiku Monday!

Eggy: There's a movie, can't remember its name, about cannibal chefs. It was weird.

Foam: That was fast. He must not be "sleeping."

Remind me not to sous for you.
