The exercise:

Write two haiku about: aim.

Bowling went about average. Well, almost - my total for the three games was two points under what I needed. Which wasn't nearly enough to drop my average, so I'm in a holding pattern until next Tuesday.

I also got to run the show tonight, as my boss (who usually works and bowls on Tuesday night) fell ill today. Which is not surprising when you consider that he's been working outside the last couple of days, in below zero temperatures with well above crazy winds.

It's been hard finding windows of opportunities to get Max outside to play.

Anyway, things went smoothly and my bowling was only interrupted by pin tangles twice. And I certainly didn't mind adding a couple of hours to my time sheet while also having fun and bowling.

Mine:

Holes in the windows,
holes in the wall. His target?
Has no holes at all.

*     *     *

Reaching for the stars,
he falls a little short. Too
bad clouds can't hold him.

It sounds like your average is going to be dropping pretty soon though, so well done on the improvement anyway! And considering you weren't totally focused, since you were working as well, I think you did a great job of getting that close to the total needed!
I'm tempted to provide suggestions on how you could bring the outside indoors for Max to play in, but I think Kat might want to have strong words with me if I do... :-D
I like your first haiku better this week, it made me smile and want to re-read it a few times.

Aim
Another broke on
Impact. They are feathers -- he
Must be aiming wrong.

-----

Aim higher. Their brain
Is just above their lungs. Well...
Mostly. Better run!


[I'm not as good as Morganna as acrostics, so these will have to do!]

Greg - dropping soon? Thank you for your vote of confidence :P

Yes, I imagine Kat would be less than pleased with most suggestions you would come up with in that category :)

I didn't even realize they were acrostics until you pointed it out, so well done in that regard. I think I like your first one slightly more this week.
