empathy for St. Joe

March 19
the celibate spouse
munches zeppole

- Over at f/k/a (scroll down for the story), we know St. Joseph as the Patron Saint of the Involuntarily Celibate, but he also apparently helps a lot of people sell houses. A very handy guy to have around. -

mid-March blues (and greens)

the pooper-scoop scofflaw
steps on her crime --
ides of March

- learn about the Ides of March at f/k/a; and find St. Patrick's day haiku, too -

ides oldies:

mid-March thaw –
et tu,
snow buddha?

Ides of March?
she yawns and hands me
the butter knife

St. Paddy’s parade –
at the curb
green and yellow snow

going out of business?

"going out of business"
the cute clerk won't write down
her phone number

- simply senryu is planning to get busy, but our sister-weblog f/k/a has moved into permanent archive status; it has thousands of haiku and senryu by a couple dozen fine poets -
