overdue haiku

haiku-sinus-pressure

haiku-overdue

haiku-mother-nature

haiku-plumber

haiku-toilet-brush

haiku-dollar-bin

haiku-little-girl

i was long overdue for a round of haiku! i just can't say enough about how much i love writing within the confines of 5/7/5 -- it keeps my mental raving to a minimum. as always, please don't call the poetry police on me, and feel free to deposit your own haiku in the commentary if you'd like to join in the fun. p.s. the next post is all about cans...

Love these!

A little holiday ditty:

Oh, three day weekend
Petrol prices keep us home
Flipping BBQ

A.M. design meeting yielded up this gem:

Client likes ugly
Glum aquiescence pays bills
Freelance ain't so free

Grumpy much?

Shelly said...

Love 'em! I keep thinking I'll write a couple, but my list of things to do certainly doesn't need to be longer. That is probably what my haiku would be about. :)

fluffysam said...

the target dollar bin is seriously one of the greatest (& most dangerous) inventions of the current era.

tulpen said...

Love all of them! Especially the toilet brush tree.

I've never tried Haiku...have been meaning to...

Kelly Warren said...

You wow and you woo

Forgive the rhyme. :) I'm so glad I dropped by tonight. These are brilliant! Parabens!

Andria said...

These are so fun! Love the library one. Several of them brought me a smile!

Jennifer said...

alrighty...you've inspired me...haiku for me too! oh and Target??? Darn their low prices, awesome displays, lovely random things that you can find sometimes, and have you ever noticed that EVERY Target store, no matter where in the country, SMELLS the SAME when you walk in??? No kidding, now go to Target and test that theory! :-) Happy Friday!

Domestic Scribbles said...

Little girls no more...I wasn't entirely ready for this.

Smells like garlic I'm sorry

Bella Sinclair said...

Ooh! I've never been so in love with a toilet brush!

Love the beautiful ribbony flow of your tornado. You know, every time I read about storms passing through your area, I get very nervous and say a prayer.

Have an excellent holiday weekend.

Sugarplum Kawaii said...

They are marvelous! What fun...I particularly like the loo-brush tree. (-;

Paper Squid said...

These are great. Ha, I too immediately walk into to Target, and they so smartly place the dollar bin/section right near the entrance. I always try to walk away but it gets me every time.

Jen Niles said...

Your multi-talentedness never ceases to amaze me. Never mind that they're clever haiku, but you present them beautifully and cleverly too?!

love2write said...

the plumber, library & tree gave me smiles!

Sue McGettigan said...

Love all the haiku, but I'm particularly relating to the library and Target ones :)
