My Week In Haiku, Part Two

It happened again,
A tornado hit the house.
The storm known as Joel.

Tomorrow they come,
My brother and my parents
My heart is so full.

I also got work
Reading a dissertation.
It rains and it pours.

I am the genuis
That skinned my knee, for alas
The treadmill was on.

These haikus are shit
Nobody would say I am
Maya Angelou.

Sourdough starter
Sits waiting on my counter--
Hostile, expectant.

This blog will go dark
While I get my life ordered,
I will see you soon.

Lost Haiku of the Week: 
Richard (Guyliner)
Your awesome has gone away,
Kick Smoke Monster's Ass.

Finally, a few of last week's incredibly awesome entries:

Screw Valentine's Day.
If he won't give it to you,
Give it to yourself.
(sd, and AMEN, sister!) 

My husband watches
Basketball. I guess I'll wash
The fucking dishes.
(Ms. Moon, and a crowd favorite for sure).

Join the fun! The pattern is 5-7-5 syllables.

The Lost line of the week: "And, I'm sorry I murdered him."

God, that was hilarious!

Ms. Moon said...

Aw. I am honored. I would write a haiku but the celery, onions, and red peppers need stirring.

only a movie said...

Too fun, especially the Maya Angelou one! (Hey! That rhymed. I guess I am a poet and didn't know it. -- Sorry I couldn't resist.)

Melani said...
