The Winner

The winner receives an 8×10 glossy print of the morning scene. And here is her request…

That’s Enough (Requested by Drea)
You’ve filled my soup bowl
For a second time. But I
Am not that hungry

Nicely done, Drea!

I will need both of your mailing addresses, so just e-mail me and we can arrange to get your prints to you!

Congrats go out to both of the winners. Stay tuned, as I will have a 500th haiku contest in what appears to be a short time indeed!

Hai-Kuul Queen (Requested by Drea)
The battle is on
Which gal will request the most?
My brain is jello

A rare condition
Of implied stupidity
It is not true, though

Bamaram (Requested by Drea)
Is this word from Hook?
Or could it possibly be
Some Persian music?

Heave Away (Requested by Drea)
The drinks went down fast
I’m running to the bathroom
I hope I make it

Mark My Words (Requested by Drea)
You’ve lost count of how
Many times you have heard this.
The mantra of moms

I Will Win (Requested by Drea)
A strong and unyelding soul
It’s all in the mind

Pyromaniac (Requested by Drea)
Lighting matches rocks
I could stare at a campfire
And I’d lose myself

Slinky (Requested by Drea)
What walks down the stairs
And makes a slinkety sound?
A slinky, I bet!

Toast To Jorge (Requested by Drea)
Let us raise a glass
To…er…me…and how much I
Er…totally rock!

Twenties (Requested by Drea)
The wonderful age
Between teenhood and mid-life
Where youth is enjoyed

Enough (Requested by Drea)
The title of this
Is very similar to
A recent title

Toe Stubbage (Requested by Drea)
I hate the corners
I think that furniture should
Float high off the ground

Thirteen is Unlucky (Requested by Drea)
Irrational fear
Why fear a number?

The Columbian Navy (Requested by Ian)
Don’t mess with these guys
They have very large cannons
That fire sacks of coke

Some handicapped folks
Can do the wickedest things
With their rolling chairs

He preaches about fitness
So many pushups!

There is a man with his rats
They’re his family

Your attitude will just be
Reflected right back

And having to face the day
When it’s Monday morn

But this time the sugar makes
Your teeth feel slimy

Where’s My Ten Foot Pole When I Need it? (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)

Where is that damned pole?

Waiting For the Rain… (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)

The people are all so parched
They look to the sky

French Manicure (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
A way to pamper
And it’s different than a
Spanish manicure

I’m With Stupid -> (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Check out my buddy
He thinks that popsicles are
Sugary weapons

In that line of thought…

You Deserve a Popsicle (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Your criminal acts
Will earn you a proper death
With this popsickle

Beasties (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
You will see them out
In the wild. Running free and
Pooing everywhere

Beautiful Eyes (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Nothing is as sweet
As staring into a pair
Of beautiful eyes

Qui Moi? (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Whether in English
Or even in the French tongue
Trouble will find you

People say my luck
Is of the worst kind due to
The day I was born

You have backed yourself
Into a literary
Corner. Surrender!

Hai-Kuul – June 06, 2005

In the course of interpreting requests, I do tend to take a little bit of creative license with some of what I receive. Some of these might be spelling mistakes, for example, that I will correct if I feel that it is the intention of the requestor. Sometimes I leave them, as they make a more interesting poem.


U Got it All Wrong (Requested by princess_castle)
What do you mean five?
I gave you twenty. You must
Give me ten for change!

I Am Not a Pre-Hitoric Creature (Requested by princess_castle)
I’m not one of those
It’s not even a real word
You just made that up

Three Black Cats and Rain (Requested by ksgrrl)
Three poor, soaked felines
Trapped in the deluge outside
At least they’re now clean

Horse Rides On the Beach (Requested by WizenedDragonPK)
Sweet, relaxed freedom
It’s a joy to be leaving
Hoofprints in the sand
