Let me take a selfie or draw a portrait

Selfies at the beach
On the cliff top
Out of reach
Capture where you are
Close to home
Or travelled far

Quick remembrance
Of a moment
In a trance
Will it last?
Or fade away
Into the past?

Sketch my face
Just as you see it
It's no race
What stands out
Jumps on paper
That you'll flout

Takes more time
Sees my true
Personality shine
Lasts on paper
And in your arm
Memory forever

Spelling Haiku

Tremendous Valley
Enormous mountains shadow
Do not be jealous


Famous, vigorous
Outrageously humorous
Obvious, tremendous


Outrageously Poisonous
Vigorously famous


Rachel's homework was to learn these spellings and use some in sentences.  They took my fancy and so I wrote into haiku.
