Haiku Regional Message Board

Tonight is Reyes
When niņos get their presents
In Hispanic lands

I'll watch the parade -
Three kings arrive on camels
In the town centre

Accept embassies
Unless raiders or Nazis?
Or be discerning?

Rejecting nazis
can require diligence
focus on that, please

and of course raiders
they can be a problem too
don't let any in

Accept everyone
Unless raiders or Nazis.
That is the right choice.

Time's out of control -
There's no way to slow it down,
So take off your watch

Water over stones
The sound never repeating
A curlew above

I enjoy the fact:
Thirteenth most scientific
But still primative

It may not make sense
But NationStates rarely does;
That's the fun of it (?)

A cold winter day
Night descends on the city
Snow is on its way
