Fresh meat from Migros
all day long I dream off it
at night I am broke



And my favorite haiku :

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they dont make sense

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

beautiful alpine
view, right outside my window
afternoon nap time

cow bells sound just like
weird swiss jazz - out of sych and
a bit discordant

i have too much time
on my hands, if i can sit
and write dumb haiku

in switzerland i
have to defrost the blasted
refrigerator

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

I don't know if triple Haikus are allowed, but this one was fun to write.


Train trip in sunshine
see men with helmets, working
mending road again

Bike-ride in sunshine
helmetted men, departed
much grit on road AAAGGGHHH

new road good for car
old road was better for bike
what is solution?
