Thank God It's Haiku Friday


It's Haiku Friday again. Lots of better ones to check out at the home of Haiku Friday at A Mommy Story.


More often than not
I’m creating memories
I’d rather not make.

Innocents as shields
deflect anger and sorrow
but fail to end it.

I take the kids’ cue,
laughing just to hear laughter.
There’s something to it.

Lovely, lovely haiku. You're getting really good at it! :D

Such deep meaning, your haiku. "Laughing just to hear laughter." :( I hope your days get better, Patois. *hugs*

TGIHF, indeed. Here's hoping your weekend injects some much-needed giddiness. By Friday, good Lord, we're at our wits end, too.

Great Haiku, sometimes instead of 'beating' the kids I decide to join them in a wrestling/tickling match and we all feel better for it.

Thanks for sharing!

I love the second one. And again someone does something truly poetic. I just try to cram my life into 5-7-5. Wouldn't it be nice if it all fit that way?

I need to get on the ball with these. I miss writing poetry!

Hey--We are going to be in the Bay Area next week. Any suggestions of what to do? Where to go? What to see? What NOT to see? LOL
