Senryu : Chimney

rushing to finish
cookies and feasts — oh, and pies!
hazards of Christmas

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Mindescapes is doing 25 prompts for Christmas.  Today the prompt is Chimney so I just couldn’t resist.  I always wondered what would happen if Santa ate all the cookies and milk left out for him. Does Santa gets hazard pay? Besides skinny chimneys, there are all those kids lying in wait for him…

Senryu : visitors

2+

strange visitors came
friendly silence greeted me
darn! none spoke English

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Movies always have alien visitors being able to speak English (or whatever the home country language is of the movie/theater).  However, I’ve traveled and I’ve noticed travelers sometimes expect people to speak their language rather than learning the country that they are visiting.

So I can’t help but wonder — when aliens show up, are they going to expect us to know their language?  And if we can’t, will that mark us obviously uneducated?  What if they decide we are not intelligent lifeforms? Or will we all make do with friendly silences and smiles?  Just wondering.

Senryu : Peeves

2+

couples have their peeves
he forgot to feed the bird!
some things drive you nuts!

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

“Darn it, Winter! You forgot to feed the bird!”
It’s in situations like this that your mind rambles, “you know, I should have made an omelette when he brought home that humongous egg but I thought it was going to be an ostrich. Darn it. I don’t think it was such a great idea to move in with a paleontologist after all. Wasn’t there a song? Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be paleontologists? Something like that for sure. Oooh, Kirstin, you’re a big kitty but I don’t think stalking this bird is a good idea, you know, honey.”
