We’re embarking on our annual Tour d’Oklahoma this Wednesday for 10 days. It’s going to be a different vibe this Christmas, with my parents in their new house and my growing dependence on Chex mix and alcohol. So…nothing’s changed except the housing situation.
Instead of disappearing for a couple of weeks, I have made the executive decision to haiku every day until the end of the year. Let’s call it WhoHoHa – Whoorl’s Holiday Haiku. Please feel free to haiku your brains out too. ‘Tis the season, peeps.
Tasty Pinot Noir
Should not have drank the last glass
Ouch, my pounding brain
Pink pajama pants
orange socks, green striped slippers
I am a vision
Why do I eat them, knowing
my stomach will FAIL
One week until Neil’s
holiday concert, I am
not close to ready
Wito is obsessed
with painting, he carries a
Weather in OK
will be in the low twenties
holy frozen face
Laurie Berkner, I
have mixed feelings about you
Right now, they’re not good

Your haikus KILL me. Did you have this closeted dream of becoming a poet?

WhoHaHa! I love it!

Oooohh. Stomach-Peanut FAIL. Ouch. I’m so sorry, because those peanuts are darn-tootin’ good. Thanks be to the Chex Mix.
Best wishes as you head to the frozen Oklahoma tundra. I’m looking forward to more of your descriptive haikus!

Here is some haiku for today’s Southern California weather:
It is pouring rain
I am going to float away
Ugg boots, they are soaked
Drowned rat hair today
My umbrella did not work
I look just gorgeous
(Dude. I see why you are on this kick… it’s addictive!)

Husband stuck at work
On his 30th birthday OH NO
More cake for me though
We need to make plan
For my day in Oklaho
Ma Fun Fun Fun Fun

For some reason, I read all of today’s haiku to the tune of carol of the bells.

Hee! I really like to think that Haikuesday served as inspiration for you, at least on some level. Speaking of which…I need to get back into that habit!

Thrilled for the upcoming

Thank you, come again.

(Um, hi, haiku is sort of addictive.)
