5-7-5

Rainy day. Whattaya say we totally co-opt Gettysburg Mom’s idea and write some haikus?

It’s easy. The first line contains five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line contains five syllables. Punctuation is up to you. I like mine without. Give it a shot – it’s fun. The topic? Anything spring-like? Rain? Flowers? Gardens? What you see outside?

Here’s the situation over here a/o this morning –

Tomato plants thrive
With frequent daily downpours
Dark skies yield no fruit

***

The neighbor’s graveyard
Is built not of rocks and bones
Old tires stand vigil

***

A quart of yogurt
Expiration July Three
Better get a spoon

  1. Peepers serenade
    Garden’s first tomato sauce
    There’s no place like Home

    Two inches a day
    The lawn grows so thick and green
    Mowing oh so much

  3. (I think we’re all TOTALLY on the same page here!) =)

  4. Peas, peas, peas, peas, peas
    My fingers are turning green
    Sweet summer frozen

    Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain,
    We could use some sun these days,
    Maybe this weekend!

  6. Fun! I wrote some haikus on my trip to Lake Superior a couple months ago. Here’s one:

    Fog-blurred horizon
    I walk the jagged rock shore
    as drink swirls about
