To Haiku or Not to Haiku

To Haiku or Not to Haiku

Hey friends, life’s been really busy lately so like my Bird a Day project, I’ve been trying to come up with other ways to squeeze in quick and easy creative projects into my day or week.

I’ve been dabbling in poetry lately.  Nothing fancy, just short little poems that I write when I think of a topic or experience a feeling or thought I’m trying to deal with.  Poetry seems to be working for me because I like the challenge of creating rhymes and patterns.  I know I’ll never be a novelist because I just don’t think I have the patience to write chapters and chapters of well developed, descriptive plots.  Poetry on the other hand can be done in small doses….right up my alley!  If I get brave enough, I’ll post some of my poems soon.

In the meantime though, I do have something else to share… I decided this week I take a stab at a Haiku.   Haikus are to me about the shortest poem you can write – only 17 syllables in all.

So, without further ado, here’s my first Haiku:
Haiku

Obviously not a serious Haiku but that was the point.  I really just needed to do something short and silly.  If you google “funny Haikus” you will find a plethora of hilarious Haikus out there.   So, if you’re not ready to start writing Haikus, how about just googling some for a quick and creative break?

See ya next time!

Spruced up Notebooks

Hey all! As much as we’d like to deny that school will be starting soon, and have put it off as long as possible, this last week we took the plunge and went school supply shopping, well…as best we could.  Unlike elementary and middle school where they give you a nice list of things you’reContinue Reading

Doodling is Good for You

Doodling is Good for You

Hey all, yep…in my humble opinion, I really do believe doodling is good for you.   Or maybe I should rephrase that…doodling is good for me.  And I think it’s good for Ashley too.  I have really good evidence of that because  last night, I noticed Ashley being very focused and relaxed while watching TV. Now,Continue Reading
