Two Crazy Old Birds




    A bit of  serendipity at work on this one!   September 23rd  marks my 45th wedding anniversary.  Today's  humble attempt at haiku/senyru  is the result of a poetic collaboration with my soulmate and  favorite pun-meister.



######


not swans but still
 mated for life.....  miracle
 or just a pair o' ducks ?


######



   The marriage has been a lot like the poem. Equal parts corny jokes and miracles. It hasn't all been a walk in the park but we managed to hold on tight and make each other laugh ..... often.

   Hope you get a chuckle too!


                                                     
still crazy after all these years
  



    Today's prompt at HAIKU HEIGHTS is 'paradox.'
