Dew Drops

HAIKU

Strings of crystal beads

       sparkling in the morning sun

              dew drops on webs

JUST ONE OF THOSE MORNINGS

 

It was just one of those mornings

When nothing would go right

The alarm failed to awaken me

And I looked an awful sight

 

Preparing oranges for some juice

I got a nasty cut

I dropped the eggs, slipped in the mess

And landed on my butt

 

My slippers flew, the dog grabbed one

And ripped the thing to bits

The toast was burned, the bacon, too

My pancakes were the pits

 

The newscast promised sunshine

Of course, it’s raining hard

My paper is a soggy mess

Out in my big front yard

 

My husband peeked around the door

And asked with a grin

“How come you’re up so early, Dear?

It’s your day to sleep in.”
