The exercise:

It's Two Haiku Tuesday again! So... write a couple of haiku about: floating.

How is it the end of April already? On top of days and weeks, Max must also be eating months now. It's the only possible explanation for his size.


With a whispered word
I'm launched skyward to hang with
Cupid on his cloud.

*     *     *

I fly like a bird,
safe beyond the reach of stress...
until the rope breaks.

Three shots of Jim Beam,
Just one beer, or maybe two.
Why’s the room floating?

Rose petals drift down
Covering the quiet pond.
Red koi float below.

Aholiab - love your first one, and your second is gorgeous. That's a damned fine, proper haiku right there.
