HAIKU OF THE DAY – 08212017

the solar eclipse

celestial bandwagon

we can’t even watch


protect naked eyes

by not staring at the sun

during the eclipse.


but you can watch it

when the eclipse is total

and the sun is black


eclipse “sun glasses”

are just like wedding dresses:

probably worn once.


the woman scoffed when,

“ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone”

played on eclipse day.


Not to be deterred,

I played “Walking on Sunshine,”

just for good measure.



she didn’t like that either.

Hmm… maybe Roy Ayers?
