He had me going.
Not being a local maid,
I thought I'd missed it
The Böögg calls backwards
Soothing our Januarloch
His future demise

Switzerland is great
Why the negativity?
It's not that bad.

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

Winter almost gone
Fluorescent lights of Migros
Missed last loaf of bread

Tortillas on sale
Think of beach in Mexico
Feel sun on my face

Sand between my toes
An icy margarita
with salt on the rim

Next aisle dolmades
Floating away in the Med
Sense a gentle touch

Now I close my eyes
Smile at lovely distraction
Enjoy the escape

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

Discovering EF
fun to read their probelms
know swiss point of view

bumping-complaint
do not take it personal
swiss do not either

(swiss pov)
entering a lift
hit the close-door button
immediately

no time to watch
who else is coming
need to go to work

train has just arrived
no way to start queing
need to find seatplace

at destination
trying to step off the train
fight my way through



[Didn't always work out with 5-7-5, sorry]
