Haiku Friday 2/22/08

Haiku Friday

俳句の金曜日

Two-hundred fifty
smoke-free days
of loving life -
Nice deep breaths are mine.

~*~*~*~*~*~

Netflix will be late,
so no Trekkies 2 in time
for us to enjoy.

We watched the first one,
laughed and enjoyed together,
then queued second one.

It doesn't seem fair,
a small injustice done us,
but we'll be OK.

Perhaps I'll return
Trekkies 2 unwatched and wait
'til we're together.

Such superstitions,
anything to keep us safe,
anything at all.

Yes, yes, yes, that's it,
as if it's meant to be such,
waiting for my man.

And so I'm content,
and it's turned into something
to look forward to.

  3. Great haiku.

    I sometimes read your blog and wish that I was still keeping track of my non-smoking days. But I just can't count that high. I was never one of those mom's who referred to her kids as "27 months old" or whatever. "Him? Oh - he's....2-ish I guess."

  8. Our Netflix is late this week, too! It's the only entertainment we have (no regular TV) and we usually enjoy a Friday movie.

    Must be the weather!

  9. That is so sweet that you'd save the movie until you see him!

  11. I quit smoking last August and I know it was the best thing I have ever done for myself - I feel like I can do anything now that I have beaten something I never thought I could. I wanted to stop by for a visit and tell you - YOU'RE IT - you have been tagged, please stop by and check out the rules.
