Small plot. Much labour.

Re: Got a haiku on your Swiss experience? Post it here!

Longing for the sun
Outside damp and very cold
Very grumpy me

Will not be mother
Except to a crazy dog
Ah...Life can be good.

Writing weird haiku
Maybe good brain exercise
Really wasting time

Re: Got a haiku on your Swiss experience? Post it here!

a mountain sunday
tiny laughing faces shine
small feet in green grass

bread and bubbly cheese
table full of happy friends
our noise fills the place

post lunch postcard stroll
a rabble crowd we make
here now time slows down

single days like these
a tile in life's mosaic
this a small swiss jewel
