TURKEY haiku


Thomas the turkey
courts his hens in the meadow
fandancing the wind.



Shit! I came up with a good haiku, while driving, said I'd remember it, but I didn't write it down, and now it's gone gone gone. This is a very poor placeholder... a real turkey.

It began with Tom Turkey... and I cheated the count by calling him Thomas the turkey, as the other lines all fell into place, in perfect count. So, the only line I remember is the flawed construct. Figures.


Tom-tom the Turkey
he's fandancing with the wind
oblivious hens.

Hens get on with it
hunting grubs in the flowers
Tom's fantail blossoms.
