Haiku Friday 3/21/08

Haiku Friday

俳句の金曜日

Two Seven Eight (278)*
still keep stringing together
those fresh smoke-free days

*yep, edited for bad basic counting skills

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I love haiku*
and I also love Fridays;
it's my lucky day

*I already explained why the word haiku is technically 3 syllables
(unless I need it to be two, then it's two, completely at my whim)

Please wake me at five
I'm ready for the weekend,
unproductive bliss

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Some very lucky
Canadians get three days
Easter holiday

Maybe if I were
one of those Canadians
I'd have three days off

And maple cookies.
(I love those maple cookies!)
And a maple flag.

Even free health care
if I ate excess cookies,
needed stomach pump

I ain't complaining,
proud to be American
and all, just thinking...

...US holidays
have this way too big long gap,
and waiting is hard...

...waiting until May
from the New Year's holiday
is such a long stretch

OK, that's plenty,
now I'm all good and jealous
of some northern pals

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

A Happy Easter
to those of you who do it.
Cadbury eggs rock.

  5. I quit smoking in 2000 at the age of 26... it can be done! I still miss it, but I love being able to take a nice deep breath and not smelling like smoke!

  6. Congratulations on the 277!! Very well done!

    I know you can keep it up! (I am hitting 6 years this year, after a decade of smoking, so I understand.)

    I love the ku's!

  7. Great Haiku, as always. There's no way I would participate in Haiku Friday -- you do so well that the rest of us look bad :-)

  10. Wonderful ‘Ku-ing today … so fun to catch up this way ;--)

    I’m for breaking rules when it suits me too, but I'm trying not to think of chocolate of any kind.

    Happy Easter to you and yours!
    Hugs and blessings,

  14. Cadbury eggs disgust me. But I'm not much of a sweets girl. If they make potato chip flavored ones, I'd be all over them!

    Happy Easter!
