edmo: No ends can be found
The rainbow truth is simply
The grass is the gold
[Fark user image image 850x478]


Rainbow parts unseen
Many think there is an end
I know it's a ring

Summer air is hot
But no cool water relief
Dog turd in my pool
 
2020-07-03 1:10:02 PM  
Three-lane one-way street
Sirens from the hospital
Poop on the sidewalk
 
2020-07-03 1:21:32 PM  
Old trees full of leaves
Blowing gently in the breeze
give me back my kite
 
2020-07-03 1:22:25 PM  
A full bird feeder
weight activated spin perch
Look!  Flying Squirrels!

North Indiana
at the lake: cars, boats, tents, folks.
Super spreader day.

The squirrels frolic.
They know this is the hour
When the dogs slumber.

I have no window
My view like my life is black
Despair is my world

Shag Wagon judges us
A project in weeds, untouched
Sell me, I seek life.

Essential workers
In cars on way to their jobs
Not paid near enough

The Summer heat starts
Hazy and hot the weather
My cat licks his balls

Wide window reveals
Green yard, trees, house, across street.
It is the landlord's.
 
2020-07-03 4:30:44 PM  
Blue skies and sunshine
Are the shade provided by
The ghosts of ash trees
 
2020-07-03 4:37:01 PM  
A motley of trees
Extend their frilly fingers
And mossy branches.
 
2020-07-03 6:19:15 PM  
Stupid pouring rain
Slugs devouring my garden
Softly, husband farts

COVID pub parking
Not a single mask in sight
Captain Trips and Coke

The mockingbird sings.
And sings, and sings, and sings on.
Damn, stupid bird: shut up!

parking lot is full
I run a liquor counter
Happy 4th, MAGATS

The warm summer sun
A dog snoozing in the shade
Some birds in the bath
 
2020-07-04 1:01:28 PM  
Overgrown bushes
Knee-high grass, unmowed since May
I am that neighbor
 
2020-07-04 1:02:06 PM  
Sunflowers, roses,
Reach towards darkening sky
In dog poop minefield
 
2020-07-04 1:11:43 PM  
I don't have the strength to get to a window, so I'll improvise.

I can't feel my legs
I can't feel my arms either
Hope the end comes soon
 
2020-07-04 1:13:00 PM  
Old terra-cotta
And majestic trees behind
All reflect on time
 
2020-07-04 1:14:37 PM  
Stay off the grass
I say time and time again
Eat land mines, damn kids
 
2020-07-04 1:18:14 PM  
Li'l skink outside plots
To rule the world of small bugs
Big spider says nope

Kids in swimming pools
Covid will come soon to all
Parents watch with glee

Defecating Dogs
Appear at my eye level
View from my basement

Why should I write haiku?
It is just a dumb poem.
Ad inifitum.
 
2020-07-04 2:31:35 PM  
Behind the gray house
There was a flowering tree
Until the storm came
 
2020-07-04 2:59:17 PM  
Hammock, table, booze
drunk in hammock unaware
of impending prank

E-Brake: Welcome Fark Artists to your weekly Fartist Friday Contest. This week, write an original Haiku about the view from your window.

A Haiku is described as "a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world. Or, a poem in English written in the form of a haiku."

My own example:

The backyard beckons
Sunflowers sway in the breeze
But it's too damn hot

Fartist Fridays are weekly creativity contests that you can participate in with things you have on hand, since many of us are stuck at home right now. If you have an idea for a future contest theme, please send it along to Farkback. Show off your skills (or lack thereof!) while we practice socially distancing together, and be sure to vote for your favorite entries.

Congratulations to last week's winner, jbtilley!

The contest is submitted on Thursdays with entries open immediately to TotalFarkers (membership has its privileges!) then goes to the Main Page on Friday. The contest closes at the end of the day (midnight Eastern) on Sundays. All times are approximate because we're all drunk.

Vote-enabling Instructables:
On either the full site or mobile, just check the "Enable voting for this entry?" box under your entry before you hit Post.

If you forget to clicky the Votey box, just Report your post using the radioactive button and ask us to enable voting.

Rules:
All votable entries follow the theme requirements.

This week's theme: Write an original Haiku about the view from your window.

Three separate entries maximum are allowed per person.

Prize: Bragging rights and a mention in the Fark NotNewsletter.

All skill levels encouraged and most importantly: We're all in this together so let's create some F'Arts together - Fark Arts, that is.

Blue sky and green trees
It's the same view every day
Damn Covid-19

No window--camping
Hammock sways in the coast breeze
Are you envious

Sunday morning news
Opining on the weekend
4th festivities

Is a monstrous mound
Of old hat bloviating
Saying the same thing.

But I won't let it
Ruin my new D&D
Campaign in 4 hours.

Neighbors without masks
I will spray you with Lysol
Get off my damn lawn

On a high bare branch
A red headed woodpecker
Hunts for crunchy bugs

Tomatoes growing
Over the front porch railing
Neighbors talk of plague

Lockdown is lifting
But I still can't go outside
Because my foot broke

The rehab courtyard
Methheads laugh away brain damage
Why did I quit drugs

Beautiful sunlight.
Asking you to come outside
But a pandemic

Seen from my bedroom
The neighbor's bathroom window
Cat on window sill

Flowers among weeds
Flowing through the breeze as one
Foliage are one.

The redneck next door
Has too much stuff in his yard
H.O.A. be damned

Cheer the real heroes
Out stopping the Covid spread
The chemtrail pilots
