Haiku Experiments

Japanese painting

 

As a Flash Fiction Challenge from Dan Alatorre (Click here to see his original post), I am supposed to write a Haiku about a randomly generated topic – mine was ‘What you shouldn’t say at a funeral’

Faux Pas

‘He was my father.’

‘He was my father as well.’

‘Who the hell are you?’

 

I’m going to try some different ones.

 

Dogs

Dogs like to ‘kiss’ you

Around your face, nose and mouth

After licking bum!

 

My dog had a limp

She had hydrotherapy

She pooed in the pool

 

Lemonade was spilled

I dipped finger and tasted

Gah! It was dog drool!

Another Great Amazon Review for ‘Dickon’s Diaries’!

Cover of 'Dickon's Diaries'

When Susan Lamb and I wrote Dickon’s Diaries, we weren’t sure how it would be received. It is purposely written in mock mediaeval speech which we knew some might find difficult and we wondered whether everyone would ‘get’ our sense of humour. Well, so far we have had one 1-star review (which mentions the mediaeval speech) and twelve 5-star ones!

Here is the latest one:

“Such a funny book. No one usually writes humour and Richard III…and in cod-Middle English, no less. Frances Lovell’s exploits in particular crack me up. Different and amusing.”
