Rush, Rush, Rush

Crumbs! Is it Monday?
I'm running to catch the bus
but have no ticket.

Having spent the weekend with fingers roped to knitting needles and wool, the Monday Poetry Bus is about to disappear into the distance, as I pant breathlessly towards its disappearing back end...
However, while pausing long enough to recover my composure, I have composed (!) a haiku in its honour, with apologies to this week's Driver, Dominic Rivron, who asked us to write a poem ON something...

Here I need you to use your imagination and picture me writing the above on a calendar or time table, perhaps? Sorry, Driver and Fellow Passengers, for being a wimp. Will try harder in future to be on time.

  2. You obviously had plenty of puff and caught it with consummate ease as your lines fully testify.

  4. I like that you are doing what is good for you and accomplishing things that are what you like for now. Not stuck in a write something a certain way on a certain day thing.

  7. When I hear(?) 'Crumbs'or 'crikey' I always think of Dangermouse's sidekick 'Penfold' but this Haiku is better , tenfold!

  13. You're a good cheater, Jinksy! You've created one of those counterfeit tickets the likes of which I often use! Next time, save me a seat and we'll compare forgeries!

  14. I think it's a lovely Haiku. But I'm a tyro on the Poetry Bus. Will one of you experts please explain to me how and why "Dominic Rivron" came to be "The Driver" I don't suppose he chose himself, - (but in Blogland you never know) - so who did choose him? And using what criteria?

  15. I expect, jinsky, that you being you, you'd get away with not having a ticket.

    Thank you for visiting my blog last week. In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It then bursts into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be deeply thankful for those people who rekindle our inner spirit. And I am – so very thankful for the gentle and generous words you wrote for me on my ‘Stormy Weather’ post. Friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine – and almost always because of friends. I’d love to send you a linocut I made to thank you and to celebrate the very special friendships we are able to create around the world via this amazing blogosphere. Please email me with a snail mail addy – I’ll have the picture matted and in the mail just as soon as I hear from you.
