TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Dry


My sandpaper throat

was only eased with liquid

gold – pure firewater.


For twenty five years

I have not touched a single

drop – teetotaller.


Here are my two entries to our favourite Francophile’s Household Haiku Challenge, where this week TJ invites us to write a haiku (or two, or three, or more) inspired by the word ‘dry’ and/or his spiky photograph – a cactus.

This is the reboot of TJ’s original theme of items from around the house. A change is as good as a rest, no?

This is a fun and short prompt – so why not take part? And in case you’re wondering – no, I’m not an alcoholic!
