Advent Calendar Day 6

Happy Holidays! It's already the 6th! Holy moly (no pun intended). Have you completed your holiday shopping? I am ALMOST finished, and that's kind of a record given the last few years.

Today's offering is especially entertaining. If you're not a member of my Goodreads group, you're probably unaware of the really fun--and absolutely unique--launch parties we have. One of more entertaining "games" is when members create haiku for the stories. They're clever, often funny, and usually right on point.

KC's and Ulrike's lovely gift to you this morning is no different.

Haiku for Petit Morts

by Ulrike and KC 

Slings and Arrows: 

Three pounds of chocolate
Off balance falling in love 
First stern - then tender

Critic's Choice:

Tree blocking the road
Bizarre things at Faust's mansion
Crispin, Rey, beware!

Just Desserts:

Chocolates vengeance filled
Melt against Tug's cheerfulness
Leaving Ridge perplexed

Other Peoples Weddings:

Accused of murder
When taking chocolate hostage
Sheriff Valentine

Sort of Stranger than Fiction:

Rashly spoken words
Extra virgin olive oil

Finally happy


  1. Those are amazing. Very talented.

  2. Thank you, Ulrike and KC. Fanyon haikus are the best. Your Goodreads group rocks!

  3. Ooooh. I love these! "When taking chocolate hostage" — LOL, exactly! :-) And now I want to reread Josh's Petit Morts all over again. Critic's Choice used to be my favorite... I wonder if that's still the case.

    Thank you, KC, Ulrike and Josh for putting a big smile on my face.

    Josh and chocolate
    magic sparkles
    A sweet, sweet spot?

  4. Cocoa and catnip
    Scrumptious haiku for advent
    Love and chocolate

    Thanks and purrs, KC and Ulrike!

  5. The haiku are simply wonderful. They each fit so perfectly. Thank you KC and Ulrike. Thank you Josh. The Petit Mort stories are my guilty pleasure. I reread them often. Just short and sweet with a little danger. Good times. :)

    1. Those little stories are very special, I think. Specific to that time and place. And the haiku are simply wonderful. <3

  6. The Petit Morts series is one of my favorites. These haiku fit each one so perfectly. :)

    1. It's amazing how so few words can convey so much.

  7. These are great LOL! Thank you, ladies!


  8. As a member of your Goodreads group, I know about haikus and fun there... Thank you for the lovely ones here!

  9. Embrace this warm spot
    Chocolate melting on our tongues
    on a sharp cold night

    Ulrike, KC, Josh, and fellow Fanyons, you're the best!

  10. Cool, there are more haiku in the comments! :-)

    I love the pics that go with the haiku.

  11. WOW! I love these haikus especially the Just Desserts one. <3

  12. Very much enjoyed the Haiku!!! Fanyons are so talented!!!
