Winter Morning Haiku

My friend Jonas M. recently posted this haiku as his Facebook status (re-posted here with his gracious permission):

His winter finger
Choked off the voice of morning
Acceleration!

This seemed rather inscrutable, until I read his immediate comment:

(Sweetie, I’m sorry I turned off the alarm in my sleep.)

His girlfriend was not amused, but the rest of us were!

Skiing Haiku

My friend Vanessa has a wonderful dry wit. While skiing recently, she posted these funny haikus on Facebook, which she has graciously allowed me to post here.

She first posted the status update, “Vanessa wrote some haikus in the lift line.”, followed immediately by this comment:

Pointy razorbacks,
I will defeat you at last.
Victory will be mine.

Then, a few minutes later:

Pointy razorbacks,
You have bested me once more.
Please call ski patrol.
