Haiku #20


Ten minutes does a Catholic
A Baptist can take hours
Some use sermons for a nap

Let's face it Dave, some sermons are best slept through.

This begs for an illustration.
I feel a book of Haiku coming on, perhaps with Mervyn Peake-like illustrations

Some sermons Dave you can sleep through!

Hi Dave, I'm not very skillful in writing poetry, but I do like to write haiku. I once had a blogger of dark poetry write me a dark haiku once. Wish I could find it. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Fun and silly, although should be posted on a Sunday.

That's why many preachers shout!

The Catholic sermons of my childhood took longer than ten minutes, at least they did in my memory. Even so sleep was out of the question. Daydreaming was the only option.

Hi Dave,

Given our supposedly short attention span, brevity is all!

Baptists can scream for hours, but you certainly can't sleep through hell, fire and brimstone!

Friko
A possibility I had not considered!

Weaver
Can't argue with that!

Kass
Yes it does, I agree. I shall look forward to that one.

Adrian
Mmmm Most, if I really tried.

Stephen
Hi and welcome. Thanks for visiting and thanks for commenting.

Artist Unplugged
Hallelujah! Thanks.

Conda
Agreed - all three.

Cloudia
MMMM MAYBE!

Elisabeth
I went to Hogh Anglican. Can't recall the sermons at all - must have slept!
Later I became a Methodist. There they averaged 40 minutes.

Derrick
Or is that the reason for the short spans?

Willow
No, guess not.
