haiku to you again

Haiku! My notebook had grown so full of them over the past year that it was starting to groan. So -- for better or worse, here are more slices of life in 5/7/5:


















You know the haiku rules here: 1) do not call the PoPo (poetry police) on me for writing these, and 2) please entertain me with one of your own in the commentary if you wish! Also, thanks a bunch to Kristin and EVA for featuring me today on Paint Party Friday!

i love your haiku -
exactly what i needed!
work sucks, boys do too.

Buffalo Lucy said...

Hahaha! Several of these struck a cord with me today but especially "nothing announces I'm here..." Took the girls to a restaurant in our haughty neighborhood last night after a friend assured us it was kid-friendly. It was, um, quiet. Well, until we got there! ;)

Love your haikus! Love you!!


Jenn said...

Through Facebook, yes it is true
The boys? I must know....

Lynn Fisher said...

I love that popo
describes someone who....oh I can't do this! : )

Domestic Scribbles said...

Coughing day and night
functioning without delight

Now, today's checklist is done and it feels good that a haiku is the last thing for today.

Great way to wake up today
Reading your haiku

Rolling on the floor
Laughing; how about adding
Those gems to your shop?

Inspiration *poofs*
WHILE my girl goes "mom! mom! mom!"
Yep that's my life too

Vicki Holdwick said...

Aimee, As always I love your post and I am struggling with a watercolor work in progress. I couldn't help it, I had to try one myself.

Oh, watercolor!
Simple, yet out of control
Why must you be so.

Annabelle said...

Love the Haikus and must send your website link to a gal who writes Haikus, she'll love them as I did! Adore the mom….

You inspired me to write what I photographed in my garden the other day and Dove sitting on the bird bath

Bird bath still frozen
Silent in the morning light
Dove sits on its edge

Giggles said...

Nobody does it better!! Wow loved your interview and I'm so glad you're back more often now!! You were missed!!

A friend posted one of your quotes on facebook unaware of who you were, so I pointed her in your direction!!

Your special art quotes
Speak blissfully to others
even when you're away!

Hugs Giggles

My day today:

beastly little boy,
tenacious and determined,
just like his mother.

God help me... ;)

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

I love these! They are so insightful and funny. I was going to single out my favorites, but I have so many favorites amongst them!

Cindy D. said...

These are hilarious and so beautifully rendered. My favorites would have to be the Elmer's Glue and coffee ones.

On haiku mountain
I leave my own tiny verse,
Writ large in crayon.

Lindsay Drya said...
