If

Before

10 AM

Walk on eggshells

When you come a knocking

With a question or problem

Multiple personalities

Without medication and coffee

Are not to be trifled with in the morn

(fyi-not me but, someone I've known)



Climb

Terraces

Overtake

The garden wall

Wisteria growing

By sunlight and moonlight

Overrunning the plantation

Choking out all that grows on the land

Not just a pretty flower any more

Today's Haiku

Haiku Heights April A to Z: Eggshells

Walking on eggshells
around tyrant's fury
masked by lying smile 


Carpe Diem Special: Wisteria

Wisteria chokes
plantation's luscious gardens
until all is gone
