Napkin Haiku


Open door welcome

Extra chairs at corner booth

Scatter, smother, smiles


Early Morn, late night

Smothered, covered, scattered, chunked

Life eggs-trordinaire

Sunday, my husband and I visited a familiar and wonderfully alive restaurant which always makes me think that I am in the presence of a great big chunk of life.  I was inspired to issue a game of challenge.  “Let’s write a few words to describe the world around us; a haiku.”

The waitress cheerfully supplied a pen and napkins were spilling out of our tables’ chrome dispenser.  Hence the wild rumpus began and after a flurry of ideas we came up with the above offerings.

Any guesses as to where we were?
