Haiku Monday: The Winner for SPIN

Well, isn't this a delightful set of comments on my blog? I spend all day traveling to Atlanta on my sister's USAir pass and my mother (who usually has linguini with clam sauce awaiting me) suggestes that I make myself a Screwdriver and a salami sandwich on white bread. This is Oscar Meyer kids' lunch salami--not Eataly, NYC salami.

And THIS is what's been happening all day? Really? I need another Screwdriver to blot out the many unpleasant images herein.

Before that, let me say that this has been an amazing collection of haiku. My heart pulled toward Rafa's "love me, love me not," but since the first read, Curmudgeon's first entry really had me:

Like one half a moth

the autumn maple seed falls

while spinning the world

The visual is spot-on, and "spinning the world" made me think of moths and silkworms spinning silk to make kimonos and caterpillars becoming butterflies and the world spinning around with butterflies in it...the haiku simply spoke to me on all levels. So, congratulations Curmy! Well done. You will be the recipient of Fleur's Haiku Monday Love Songs. (I owe it to at least 3 other winners too! New Year's Resolutions are coming!)

Aunty Belle, I'm glad things have smoothed out for you, and I loved the coincidence that your early a.m. reading surfaced! Corey Jo, we missed you, and I missed Chicky, too! Next time, yes?

Honored, as always, FLEUR, who supports no word but "dyspeptic" when it comes to unpleasant stomach situations.

Haiku Monday: Spin

You spin me right round, baby!

The December 19 Haiku Monday Theme is "Spin."

Please post all entries here.

Enter as many haiku as you like, but indicate which two you want judged. Visuals will be taken into consideration, so if you post visuals at your site, indicate that, too. The usual  5-7-5 format applies. Kireji and kigo are preferred elements, though it's possible to win without them if your entry knocks my tabi off.
Good luck!  I cannot wait to read your entries!

Haiku Monday: Silver

Buried in the sand,
treasure glitters within reach!
Silver gum wrapper.

Tiffany's treasures:
glitter, sparkle, shimmer, shine.
Your smile dazzles me.

Haiku Monday: Time

The second hand sweeps.
My pulse thrums like summer rain;
one beat skips for you.
