I'm up so early
The rain hasn't started yet.
I wish stuff was open…

I'm still posting here
But sometimes I feel sort of
Lonely as a cloud.



I wonder what'll happen to the old community as people flee LiveJournal.

Seeing the garden
And listening to Mein Kampf
—Hitler painted roses.



Couldn't get that into seventeen syllables no matter how I tried.

Central heating thing,
Why do you taunt me with your
Feeping creatureism?



Why doesn't the stupid control just have a thermostat and be done with it? No, it has to have separate settings for each day, and for some reason I can't get the damn central heating just to try to keep the house at a given temperature because of that. Now, a haiku that needs that much explanation is probably way outside the bounds of the form, but I'm so annoyed with this device there was only this way of expressing it—or a rant on Facebook, I suppose.

Surprisingly, I couldn't find an online definition of 'feeping creatureism'. The term is a Spoonerism of 'creeping featureism', the idea of putting more and more features into something for the sole purpose of putting more features in it.

This thrashing about
Trying to stop the story
But it just goes on.



Don't fall asleep with the Kindle® on…

ready to bloom   almost as

The scent of the roses
And the tang of fresh water.
Sadness unwilted.



Unwilted? I suppose the only thing I was sad about was that word…

Grey sky in the morning.
Oh, the sweetness of the air
As zephyrs blossom.



Autumn at last!

Up at six o'clock,
Not knowing what the hell for,
Stretching like a cat.

Sun on the garden
And lime leaves green with envy
Of the cherry tree.
