The exercise:

Write two haiku about: safety.

Back home with Max, all of us safe and sound. He's definitely seeming to be back to his usual self, but of course Kat and I are still a bit on edge. I'm sure that will fade in the coming days but it's a bit hard to deal with at the moment.

We're doing our boxes and local orders tomorrow instead of today, so I'm fairly confident that I will have no idea what day it is all week.

Mine:

Danger approaches,
shaking the earth as it comes.
I will keep you safe.

*     *     *

Guards, alarms, fences...
I'm sorry dear, but safety
is an illusion.

I'm tempted now to tell you that we have still to visit Mejaran this month, just to confuse you all the more ;-) I'm sure you'll get back into the swing of things pretty quickly!
I like your second haiku better this week, because safety is just an illusion :)

Safety
She wears bright colours
When she cycles to her work.
Is being seen safe?

Impregnable box
Built to keep you safe from death.
It needed air-holes.

Greg - meanie :P

Love both of your final lines. The first because it left me pondering, the second because it made me laugh :)
