                      Wait…That’s the wrong hare…
                      this isn’t even March yet
                      down the rabbit hole

                      I had to laugh at this. My painting muse just forced me to paint a bunch of rabbits for no reason that I can tell. I don’t know how to paint them but there they are all staring at me. Maybe it was a misunderstanding…

                      down the rabbit hole
                      looking for answers online
                      popped up somewhere else

                      those muses can be quite tricky can’t they? πŸ˜‰

                      popped up somewhere else
                      then another and then more
                      why all the rabbits?

                      “tricky.” Hmmm… Perhaps a stronger word for what those muses are? πŸ˜‰

                    4. J

                      …. well … I wasn’t going to say that, lest the muses decide to abandon me for a few days in retaliation! So we’ll say the muses are kind to a fault, generous, giving, loving, beautiful, and sexy-in-the-right-lighting. πŸ™‚

                      why all the rabbits?
                      mom blanches at the question:
                      “go ask your father”

                    5. Alice Keys

                      Aren’t those muses all that! (she said loud enough hoping to undo any damage) πŸ™‚

                      “go ask your father”
                      And, yes. You should ask him all
                      those other questions.

                    6. Alice Keys

                      Yes. This reminds me of teaching you to drive a stick-shift in France. Yikes!;-)

                      stripped a gear perhaps
                      leaving the country this week
                      sell the kangoo fast

                    7. J

                      all that b-b-b-b … sounds very cold!

                      blues before breakfast –
                      cream curdled in my coffee
                      and the sugar’s gone

                    8. Alice Keys

                      and the sugar’s gone
                      Here, Sweetie. Stir my coffee.
                      Sweet finger enough.

                      b-b-b is not very haiku-ish. This comes from driving a haiku with a sewing machine muse. I have too many diverse projects going this week.

                      Uh oh …. !
                      Shall we shake hands, then, and give it a breather for a few days?

                      finger sweet enough
                      but he waves goodbye for now —-
