jornales

for a moment of joy or moments no one pays for, i give myself a ‘jornal’. this makes me rich. try it.

red nose haiku–isn’t it past the season? No, according to Alan Summers’ prompt at NaHaiWriMo…so my take

It’s Red Nose Day today, according to Alan. There’s a link that came with the prompt at http://www.rednoseday.com. It’s a day to be funny, and earn for charity. A really wonderful idea to turn laughter into real joy for those who are in need of things others have taken for granted and from those who must have forgotten laughter is also a basic need. I thought the prompt was a real challenge. But I think these haiku work in a way. I focused on Santa’s Rudolph first and realized, a red nose is also a clown’s, indeed!

#18
clown
washes freckles off
and tattoed red nose

‎#18b
vampire–
makes the children laugh
with his red nose

‎#18c
class laughter–
he points to his red nose
on his forehead

‎#18d
little boy asks
clown with two red noses on ears,
“who are you?”

#18e
the mourners–
sniffling through and wiping
their red noses
