Fresh as a

dryer sheet!
Did you think daisy? Well, that's me. I like to keep it fresh. Ha!

So it's Sensational Haiku Wednesday and it's fresh...

Wake up feeling fresh
New day brings new ideas
Changing perspectives

These days it's the girls
being fresh and flirty with
clueless, aloof boys

Crisp apples to pluck
Perfect pumpkins for picking
Harvest time at farm


And just for fun, I wrote another poem...

Queen Dragonfly

Transform me to dragonfly
Grant my wish to hover high
Above the earth up in the sky

On strong, sleek wings, aloft will I
Soar and dip and dive and climb
Slender, green, and blue sublime

Viewing life through magic eyes
Great big world, all surprise
Investigating makes me wise

Bliss to leave my woes behind
Responsibilities confined
Banished deep within my mind

So when a dragonfly you find
Along the shore or backyard line
Please be sure to treat it kind

Your dragonfly poem is so beautiful! I could see the world vividly from the dragonfly's "magic eyes." Thanks for sharing your lovely poetry!

We're not clueless!
All right, maybe we are...

Love the first haiku! I needed to read that today. :)

I love the clueless boys line, too. :) These are great! I love poetry but I can't write it. Sometimes I do, just for fun, but it sounds like bad teenage poetry! :)

Nicely done all round. I don't remember being clueless, though ;-)

As a child my sister said stay away from the dining needles because they will sew you up. That was Arleen who said that, of course.
Really nice poem, Tara.

Oh my God I LOVE the smell of dryer sheets :D

I'm not a fan of bugs at all, but I was actually pretty enamored with the dragonfly :)

As usual, you're the epitome of talent and awesomesauce.

I loved all of your lovely tips. I know this is in the wrong comment place, but I read that first. :) What a fun filled Haiku and a gorgeous poem of the dragonfly. You always have such a way with words and expressing yourself.
