Stars


Picture Credit: Google images
Two sets of haiku

The rich and famous
Glittering and glamorous
Untold opulence

Strutting the catwalk
Or of screen stars or crooners
Rich talents abound

Coterie of stars
Astounded and enraptured
All generations

*************
How I love to see
shooting stars in the night sky
Showers and tailings

It must be fun but
must I wait in the open,
in the cool night air?

No, save the bother
Have someone thumb hard on your
head, you will see stars


Written for Leo's Haiku Heights #156 with prompt - stars -

  2. Lolzz Did you hear me chuckle? I have experienced the blackout and the stars around my head, not because of a blow but bcoz a terrible fall.

    Loved the two takes on the prompt. The second one is hilarious. :)

  5. If only those shooting stars
    Would really grant wishes at our bars
    And then that would be grand
    I'd have much litter box sand
