Haiku

Haiku

H is for Haiku, poetry written in 5-7-5 syllable meter.  Here are a few I thought of in certain situations.  Please comment on your favorite, perhaps phrased as a haiku?

Composed during a stitching workshop:

Dang!  Thread knots again.
Untangling messes with
my tranquility.

Composed while sitting in a radiology waiting room:

A knobby knuckle;
My doctor diagnoses
with radiation.

Composed while stuck in a traffic jam:

Sirens, flashing lights.
An accident lies ahead,
waiting time unknown.

  6. I agree with ALL the comments above!!! I'm amazed that you think of haikus in spare moments! Talk about keeping your brain active!!! I especially like DL's comment - how cute! And I liked the "sirens" one of yours the most, although I'm impressed with them all! Great job.
