THE PROMPTS:
keen -/- Operating Room Nurse Day:

Another occupation we should salute

.

 Keen:  having or showing an ability to think clearly

and to understand what is not obvious or simple about 

something

: very strong and sensitive : highly developed

: very excited about and interested in something

.

====================================

.
November is “K” or perhaps “k” and “kn.”
 
We have some of each for your haiku enjoyment. 
 
This month, each word is tied to a holiday – real or made up – 
 
Thanksgiving or “Sinkie.” 
.
 
Sometimes, the connection is obvious – 
 
kneel for All Saints Day; and often not – 
 
well, you will see. 
 
Your haiku might explore the word, a variation of it, 
 
the holiday, 
.
 
or if you are really ambitious marry word and holiday in the same poem. 
 
Enjoy and celebrate the imagination of wordsmiths and poets. 
.

(Thanks to Sigrid Saradunn for her help compiling the list.)

Gary Blankenship is a poet and artist from Bremerton, WA.  
We met on the facebook Not 5-7-5 NaHaiWriMo
haiku and Tanka Poets on Site.  
We also shared a joint art project decorating a lobster buoy 
for a charity auction.
 
When I read his haiku on WNV I asked him permission 
to share them which he did.

waking
uncertain
a buzz in my ear

.
.
the mosquito
does not know the damage
he causes

.
.
asleep on a hammock
I should hear the buzzing
of my life changing

.
.
tomato in standing water
little black specks
hatch into my life
.

and a Tanka

Irises 
Carefully arranged
In her honor
He orders his house servant 
To replace them with driftwood
