Some Miscellaneous Stuff

"I would especially like to recourt the Muse of poetry, who ran off with the mailman four years ago, and drops me only a scribbled postcard from time to time." ~ John Updike

Having a great time.
Wish you were here.  Another
time, perhaps?  Love, Muse

Night Sky

“Metaphor for the night sky: A trillion asterisks and no explanations”.  ~Robert Brault

I’ll never offer
explanations…but look up.
You might find me there.


Origin of image is unknown.

Oh Fiddlesticks!

A fellow who felt he’d been had
re buying a dubious ‘Strad’
found his authentication
lacked substantiation.
Oh fiddlesticks!  He was sure mad.


Notes:  The first poem is a 5/7/5 Haiku.  The prompt was 'Muse' from Sunday Scribblings.  The second poem is also a 5/7/5 Haiku.  The prompt was 'Moon' from Poetic Bloomings, and the photograph was taken (and provided for) by Marie Elena Good's husband Keith.  The final poem is a Limerick, inspired by the fun wordplay over at Mad Kane's Humor Blog,


  1. The muse does tend to come and go.
    Nice work and may the muse be with you!

  2. You are so funny. Loved the Updike poem, and the illustration of the Strad, along with the limerick, was perfect. Technical rendering alongside humorous doggerel - the irony is delicious! Good Bloomings post, and I started there, too. Peace, Amy

  3. LOL! Since I'm a musician, I especially enjoyed your Strad limerick. And your muse haiku made me giggle.

  4. Even a muse needs a she'll come back with lots of new ideas..Jae ;)

  5. You have brightened my day, times three.

  6. These are so brilliant.
