HAZY POETRY

The haze is back,
Just our luck,
Grey skies abound,
All you can see is the ground,
And nothing above a 12 foot rack!

The forest is on fire,
Definitely not burning with desire,
I'm not sure about the peat
But if you think about the heat
It burns the quagmire

A sorethroat has come knocking,
I wear a striped red stocking
Oh! There goes the wind
The sun saying hi from behind
Adieu! I'm going spelunking


The haze arrived some time ago (I can't remember when exactly), but I was thinking this morning about how the blurry skyline looks like there is a mist shrouded in mystery until it assaults your nose from all directions.

I wrote the 'poetry'  waaaay back in 2006. Some things are just there for rhyming purposes.

    1. Oh yeah, I used to do it quite a bit a few years back. No idea why I stopped, though.

    Haha, I see what you did there!

    The first two lines of the second paragraph are simply genius. Good work!

    1. Ha ha... Yes, the haze is an annual thing, hence why the poem got written all those years ago.

  4. I don't mind haze at all. I like fog/mist/haze/whatever you want to call it. I like the poem, it got vague and weird in places but that's how I like it.

    1. It's pretty alright to look at. I seem to have a problem with the smell. Ha ha.. Yes, it's vague and weird at places to get it to rhyme... I remember that the red striped stockings had something to do with pippi longstockings.
