Haiku Monday: Vacation(s)

My Mom, in Italy

Suitcase swiped in Rome;
only shoes are sky-high heels.
Pieta brings tears.

Best Vacation Ever, Summer of '73

Drive through the Badlands.
Steely Dan on 8-track tape.
Pop Rocks and Blowpops.

True Story on PBS

Trip down mem'ry lane:
her Holocaust Vacation.
It's a small, small world.


  1. Very nice. Your second one most especially. Thanks again for playing!

  2. Loved your haiku!

    Here's one I wrote a couple of vacations ago:

    Seizing your snow globe
    For being an airline threat
    Doesn’t hold water.

  3. Congrats!!! Goodness, I must have skimmed over your winning Badlands haiku on my first read over at Moi's. The Badlands AND Steely Dan :) Perfect! I just got back from a trip to South Dak and have been posting about it on my blog. I took beaucoup photos and should have a post up about the Badlands in the next week. In case you want to crank up the Steely Dan, pop a Pop Rock, and reminisce :)
