Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday
I have been having a hard time coming up with a theme this week. I think my brain is bruised. I have too much going on. There was the birthday party last weekend and this weekend I am throwing a baby shower for my good friend, who is having twin boys. Add work and kids to that equation and you get me, the muddled mess. So here I attempt Haiku Friday themeless, whatever comes into my mind.
Reading a good book,
it used to be so simple.
Who ate all my time?
***
I adore dirt cake.
It must have a million points...
Life has come to this.
***
He got in a fight.
A four year old delinquent,
No bike for three days.
***
Swimming in the dark,
Gliding effortlessly through.
The world is my cave.
***
I remember it,
The fallout of giving up.
Not ever again.
***
Why am I working,
Outside my window it looms.
The most perfect day.

Oooh, my boy's quite the bully sometimes. I dread him as a four-year-old.

Great haikus, themeless or not. I'm a fan of stream-of-consciousness.

great haikus! i agree with you about reading books...you don't even want to know how long it takes me to read a book cover to cover!

Wow, these come way too easy to you Serina. I adore dirt cake too.

Oh, The Joys said...

I think cake is 12 points. Might as well be a freakin' million though, right?! Grrr.

What did you have to give up? If you don't mind me asking, sweets.

And, I agree. Reading? What's that these days? I read blogs.

For someone with a fried brain, you write some terrific poetry.

I quite enjoyed these, even if your brain is not fully functioning. Maybe you need a weekend away?
In Alabama, maybe?

Just trying to help....

Plus my kid could fight with your kid so they'd bet entertained. We could drink margaritas....

Could dirtcake really be only 12 points? Can we hope that is true? lol. Great haiku...from me to you.
