Monday morning haiku: April 2nd

The old man laughs, though
nothing in his countenance
would suggest humor

Intriguing.

I'm glad your Monday haiku returns.

Thanks Minty and Minx. I never know what will hit, and getting such feedback from two very diverse folk such as you two means a lot.

Liz: All my stuff is at least basically copyrighted under my Creative Commons license. I can't imagine anyone is going to steal this.

HinSF: Glad you're intrigued. I skipped a couple weeks there (the funeral, and I can't remember why last week) but I never intended to discontinue the practice. It's a good little exercise for me. I usually write them in my head while smoking my first cigarette of the week at work.

maybe humor does exist, but in different forms.

thanks, Maht, for the inspiration!

CS: Thanks to you, for sharing your take on the old man over at your place.

I like the word "countenance". It's not a word that I use very often, but maybe I should start.

Katie: I love it, too. Hard to find places for it sometimes, though.
