Haiku Time

Kids Driving Me Nuts
Why Won't They Go To Bed Now?
No School Tomorrow

(I originally had the last line say, Time For A Cocktail, but changed it.)

Apple Martini
With A Caramel Drizzle
Slice of Granny Smith

(this one might not work if you pronounce caramel as two syllables like I usually do, but in this case, read it like car-a-mel)

Thoughts Go Inside Out
Turn 'Round In My Heavy Head
And Spit Out My Mouth


So I Said To Him
I Do Not Want Your Baby
Fucked Me Anyway


I'm A Blond Redhead
What The Fuck Does That Mean, Huh?
Your Stylist Screwed Up?


Use Five Syllables
Seven For The Next Poem Line
Then Five More To End

(So, this one may not work either, if you pronounce poem as two syllables, but I didn't so it works.)

OK, your turn in the comment section--whatever first comes to your mind, write it. Remember, it's 5 - 7 - 5 syllables for the lines, just in case you didn't interpret the last poem. Show me what ya got, and feel free to write as many as you want.

I'll leave ya with this one for the upcoming holiday weekend--

You - Happy Easter
And If You Don't Celebrate
Have Some Candy Still

Thank God it's Friday
Even though I didn't work
I still love Fridays

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Oh, I really, really like these! Keep 'em coming!

I want to know who Lila is. A daughter? A girlfriend? A wife? A sister? Anon, please share!

B--I love Fridays too! But Saturdays are a little better!

I LOVE this one that you wrote:

Thoughts Go Inside Out
Turn 'Round In My Heavy Head
And Spit Out My Mouth

Here's my attempt, and keep in mind I haven't written a Haiku since seventh grade.

Work is such a bore
I want to be with my kids
At home reading Seuss

OK, I'm no poet, so no poem from me! But I am getting my hair done on Monday, Steph, if you want to meet for coffee. Email me if you're free in the afternoon!

Grown-up night tonight
We have a babysitter

Soft curves melting smile

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Lo said...

Perez is my friend
Who's Anna's baby daddy
Damn I need a life

Martini said...

Past Present Future
Whatever has transpired?
Soon, soon you will hear

autism grabs us
will it ever release us
yet we love them so

April is autism awareness month. :)

backstroke in the lake
sunshine makes his hair like gold
lips are cool on mine

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Obsessive, it is,
Damn thing they call internet
Turn off and drink wine.

red white wine earth's song
buzzes in head strums in heart
earth's song sung in wine

The Anti-Wife said...

Really glad it's Friday. Here's why.

I hate spam e-mail.
I want to nuke the senders.
Time for my valium.

(Never haiku'd before! Thanks for the comment!)

Chocolate makes me fat
Yet I eat it anyway
Xanax is fat-free

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Wine, Valium, and Xanax--
Love 'em girls!!!

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Yoga, then coffee
A perfect day already
Now just need a nap.

In response to your comments over at my place:

Maia sweetheart child
doing yoga for mommy
Downward Facing Dog

More babies are good
more love laughs and games to play
We'll have another

I need a Summer
of baby playing fun
Fall is time to start

Cryptic, yes? Fun as well. :)

Piddler said...

Thanks for your comments
Lukey-Patooey, great name
Can't stop haiku-ing.

Funny, isn't it.
Hated this when forced at school
More fun among friends.

KatieBug said...

Boy won't stop screaming
I need a martini now
Alas, I nurse him

mamashine said...

And that last one was ME! And my sister was logged in on my computer and I didn't know until she called to say you loved her poem. That I wrote. But it's okay. Her kids are funny. You should read her blog too. :)

KatieBug said...

On visit with sis
Changed the user name to mine
SHE had great haiku

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

KSL-- I know! She OUTTED you!!!
But this one is good too! Wouldn't it be fun to speak in Haiku for a whole day! Exhausting!
