Early Bird Special (quadrille with bonus haiku)

Early Bird Special

unlike the midnight special
there are no songs
to celebrate the early bird special
no IHOPian bard,
no poet laureate of the blue plate
no bargain basement Dylan
no cut price Cohen
to extol the digestive
and economic benefits
of getting an early start.

Inspired by the dVerse prompt to write a quadrille using the word “early”. Thanks to Kim for the prompt.

Bonus Haiku

dawn breaks, early shift
at the haiku factory
counting syllables.

    Dylan, Cohen; some heavy hitters there. Maybe you’re the voice of morning. And the i hop reference has me looking for the pancake batter. Very nice and love the bonus haiku.

      Thanks Suzanne, that’s very kind of you. Much appreciated. This post seems to be getting a lot more traffic than I usually get..just curious, when you say “recognised by the blogosphere” what do you mean? JIM
