attempting haiku

I have a friend who is a brilliant but as yet largely undiscovered writer who has this blog, done all in haiku form. I've always enjoyed the haiku style, but I have to admit that I haven't written a haiku myself since a high school writing class.

That said, I so enjoy reading my friend's blog that I've decided to attempt writing some myself. So.... here goes.

Disappointment reigns
Expect diff'rent behavior
Some things never change

How will she make it
When no one is there to push?
Bad habits are learned

No one is perfect
Sometimes we do stupid things
Thank God for mercy

So sweet is my boy
Precious face, heart, innocence
Bittersweet; he grows

Ten years! How did we
make it this long? I don't know.
But I'm glad we did!


That was fun! :)



  1. Thanks for the plug, SW. I'm also on Twitter @cellphonehaiku if anyone wants to get my daily haikus that way.
