Metre Monday – Cottage Haiku

21 May

Nothing better than the vague Oriental serenity of some elegant haiku to wash down a delicious long weekend at the cottage.


Dappled summer sun

Toes dangling in the water

Reading Game of Thrones


Pasty skin sun-bakes

God, my flesh sizzles! I need

SPF Ninety


Riding a Sea-Doo

Holy shit this thing is fast

Thank Christ for kill-switch


Family eating

Laughter, shouting, memories

Man, this food is good


Quiet heat at night

Watching movies in the dark

Nana hates Shawshank


Just what I needed

What’s this holiday, again?

…Thanks, Victoria.
