Shakespeare turned his back
On't; calling it nought but a
"Christmas comedy".

Whole of air laden
every breath a spring song
pleading, Never End.

Raining in Madrid. No processions for Jesus, Not this year, at least. EDIT: something a bit wierd going on here. Hitting Enter isn't giving me a carriage return, and I can't click on any of the message interface buttons (smilies, fonts, links, etc.)

We have lived Easter :
The sponge on lips, last words breathed,
then a bright rising.

Thank you! I've been wanting to write something for a while about this but needed the limitations of a haiku to keep me from floundering in reminiscence.

I know limericks will make you hate us
But before you start, please will you wait, as
I was worried Col'd gone
'cos each time I logged on
I kept reading "haikus" as "hiatus"...

We like limericks
Though they're inappropriate
Amid these haikus
