and some truth...

everything i do
will always be overshadowed
by what i do not

* a haiku/senyru is a Japanese poem composed of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.

by day by night

i love your handsome face by the day
just thinking of you makes me smile my smile
i'd banish my nighmares if i could have my way
for the dreaded monster has your panache and style

oh! and he has your handsome, loving face
and my neck firmly in his bony grasp
it begins to snap as he pacifying says
'won't you wake up now, my dear asp'

for threeWordWednesday prompts: dread, grasp, pacify

earth hour, huh?

i watch my dad walk off humming
leaving the lights of the bathroom burning
and i wonder how long the geyser's been running
before i finally turn it off!

to cut down the mounting electricity bill
i now do all the reading by the window sill
and when i remind him of 'switch-off-after-use' drill
i am invariably met with an ugly scoff!
