To close more windows,
that is my goal. Finger clicks
and one more opens.

For Jim, 1936-1990

A boy and his frog,
on a show and street showed us,
Muppets can touch souls.

Muppets and Fraggles,
Crystals and Labyrinths too.
Yoda too we love.

We still miss you Jim,
and the worlds you shared with us.
Gone from us too soon.

There is still a hole unfilled,
shaped like a boy and his frog.

Red light, on a bike.
No danger should I run it.
Does not flesh beat steel?

Okay, okay, I get it. You're part of some bicycle team. Practicing for some big event. Guess what? I used to have to ride a bike everywhere I wanted to go, and I'll still say you're an idiot for running the red turn arrow on a bicycle.

Flesh colliding with a minimum thousand pounds of high speed steel? Yeah, you'll lose that fight ten times out of ten.

Hmm. Is it me or have almost all these haiku been grumpy/snarky?

Follow directions?
Wow! How did you think of that?
You are a genius!


--

It is a bit discouraging sometimes how many problems a day I fix by pointing to the directions sitting in front of someone and asking, "Have you tried following the directions?" Followed by shocked amazement from the one helped when following the directions actually works.

Called a genius for suggesting trying to directions at least once? Um... Well, I suppose for certain definitions of genius. Somehow I still manage to be optimistic about the future.

Why this not working?
I not follow directions,
that not matter, right?

You have a question
so you ask a different one
Now we are both sad

Wait twenty minutes
finally you open chat screen.
Log off while I type.

one hundred forty
no more characters than that
tweet haiku not sonnets


within one tweet
that haiku did surely fit
profound this is not

This is too easy

Head to desk, we weep

[livejournal.com profile] minor_architect is proposing to run through [livejournal.com profile] aldersprig and [livejournal.com profile] kc_obrien's follow up 30 Days of Flash Fiction prompts, using them as prompts for haiku. This got me thinking of doing haiku as well. And pondering a maddeningly more common occurrence came again today...

The problem exists
September never-ending
'tween keyboard and chair

If you aren't sure what this is referring to, then review PEBKAC and September that Never Ended.

I don't mind people who are beginners. I mind people who seem either willfully ignorant (and determined to stay that way) or who seem just plain unable to learn from experience.

"Hey, I've tried putting this same username and password in ten times and it keeps saying 'Username or Password is wrong', will it work if I try again? No? How about if I try again?

"Click on the reset password link? Why would I do that? What if I just try putting in the exact same username and password again?"
