      1. If you’re after squirrels with a .22, you better be using longs or magnums, or you’ll just be hearing laughing chatter as he scampers off. True about the squirrels smelling the hunter. The more alcohol he’s consumed….

                1. I’m assuming that most readers are not expecting bullets in their Haiku, and would not approve. So just hoping it was interesting enough that a few of you would give it a chance.


  1. Aha! So if a true Haiku is supposed to be connected to a season, this is connected to hunting season? 🙂 There is a great deal of double meaning tied up in these few words and I understand the desire sometimes to shoot those chattering voices, I mean, can I get some sleep around here, or what? Nope – grab the pen and write it down. Irascible indeed.

    1. Hahaha! Thanks! Yes, I felt like I was still true to the idea of Haiku. And we don’t know what happened, if this is just longing for peace and a fantasy. I’ve been reading a lot about Basho and his damn frog, and how radical it was for him to say that. I want radical Haiku. Say something surprising, even if it kills a few squirrels.
