For the 1st of December I thought it would be a lovely idea to join in with Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge.
The prompt words this week are gold and sing : Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge, Gold and Sing
To understand a little of what the following haiku is about I urge you to read a piece of writing that I enjoyed doing some time ago, when my bubble bath took on a bit of an extraordinary form that grew and grew into a swirling mass of monster imagination….
My theme for the following haiku….. is to continue this preposterous fun.
Thereafter, I will be writing a piece of flash fiction about the Bubbly Snowman for Solveig Werner’s Advent Calendar on the 24th of December so keep a look out for that on Solveig Werner blog. I’m hoping that the snowman might just melt your heart…
As well as this I am joining in with Ronovan’s suggestion to add photos to this post. This is in conjunction with the 52 day Photo Challenge – Extra – The Aran Artisan Photo Challenge– I’ve been baking my Christmas cake – which I’ll be adding extra sherry to!!! and lots of nuts, fruit, glace cherries,….. yum! The recipe is via Natalie at There She Goes. Thanks Natalie for the awesome recipe, it looks like it’s turned out well…
The mix …
The cake… turned out heavenly, in fact I could still smell the wonderful Christmassy aroma well into the evening.
So on to those 1st of December promised haiku Snowman kisses…
Bubbly Snowman Kisses
The Bubble Monster,
Appears in all disguises,
Often he may sing.
A hearty Snowman song.
On Snowy Christmas days,
He greets you.
Singing golden verse,
He’s always chillingly sweet,
This Christmas Cracker,
Bubbly terror of the tub,
So hot, he’s soon gone.
Grab him while you can…
Watch out for his sweet kisses,
They might leave a mark.
Like all cool, chic guys,
He’s bound to rush away fast,
Swirling down the plug.
Before he is caught.
By much loved, bearded, guess who?
Prize bubble catcher.
Santa’s no nonsense,
He’ll get the reindeer on him,
Send him on his way.
Trying not to cry,
Teardrops from frosty Lapland,
I sigh, once, twice, thrice.
Poor Snowman – you melt my heart,
Santa’s cute rival.

Ha ha!!! Yes I did say it was going to be preposterous and I wasn’t joking. Well why not? Life is too short to be too serious!
Hope you enjoyed my silly haiku. I enjoyed writing it.
Stay tuned…… Kyrosmagica is planning on inviting you all to my Christmas party on this blog on Sunday 18th of December when you can pop by for a bit of virtual ice skating, and to share your news and your lovely links.
Bye for now.
Hi Marje! What a fun haiku poem. It tickled me and I loved it. You’re right, life’s too short to keep the ‘ID’ caged all the time. Well done!
Thank you Vashti glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
That Christmas cake looks scrumptious too. 😛
Thanks,very happy with how it turned out. 🙂
That cake looks terrific, Marje. I look forward to seeing some more photos after you’ve decorated it. I’ll always remember you for the Bubble monster story. I love it! Such great imagination.
Have a fabulous week. 🎅🎄
