The exercise:

Write two haiku about: stealth.

I dropped Max off at daycare at 9:20 this morning, with minimal fuss. Normally Kat picks him up but she was feeling tired this afternoon, so I went to get him at 4:30, since he's been wanting to be picked up later the last couple of times.

Still wasn't ready to come home.

What are they putting in the water over there?

Oh, yearlong prompt, second visit. Let's say Thursday. Cool?



Sneaking, creeping, a
little boy approaches the
sacred cookie jar

He works by moonlight,
leaving no trail to follow:
The Night Janitor

The Dog
Wait until it's dark
Creep to the counter, leap, grab
The kid's toy is mine!

The Snow
Softly falling down
Silently blanketing the
World with white mufflers.

I creep through the trees
Without making any noise.
I must stay hidden.

My treasure lies there,
The child of my enemy.
Her life for my soul.

Morganna - your first brought a smile to my face, your second is utterly lovely. Nice work :)

Ivy - that's a powerful pair of haiku. They work wonderfully together and it's pretty much impossible for me to pick one over the other. Well done!
