Haiku and related form

The faculty had a curling bonspiel at the East...  Love the title it’s the “related form” I’m writing here…:D 😀 😀

A little haiku
to explain my absence here
First there was working

Then curling bonspiel
lots of driving around town
The kids lost their game

But only by two
gained experience galore
still needed a tissue

Sportsmanship top-notch
Another long game today
more driving around

hope to have a win

See you on Monday
for Meatless recipes
and useless Tuesday info

Remember to Laugh loudly
Love generously
Care deeply
and most importantly
Speak kindly.

A Kvetching Poem on a Sunday Morning

Sunday morning
Raining and cold
Children still snoring
and it's a wee bit borin

I'm trying to write a poem
But it just ain't goin
I'd like to write Haiku
But haven't done that since high schoo

Dishes are done
Laundrys been started
My beloved feels I'm writing too much
He's so full of huff and such
and he works too much.

Some women knit, watch tv, or go to the gym,
Go to a church and sing a hymn  
This lovely woman likes to read and write
So why do I feel so contrite?

He's away again today
So whom am I left to play
The girls have their friends over
I have my chores that are never ever over

The weather is not to nice
Everything is covered in ice
If I go out I'm sure I'll pay the price
So there you have it
A Sunday morning poem
and this last part does not rhyme at all
I am finished my kvetching
maybe later I'll try my hand at sketching


Have a beautiful Sunday!
