Platypus Rainbow


In honor of the fact that I will be undergoing some outpatient surgery today (no biggie – not to worry),I have decided to turn this over to you, gentle readers.

I know for a fact that many of you are quite creative. With this in mind, I am asking that you submit via the comments section your own haiku or haikus. Please keep in mind that I will be loopy on pain meds while reading these, so I’m sure they will all be wonderful.

I will begin with the haiku that inspired this post, courtesy of my friend Wendy from Weight What:

Haikus Are Easy
But Sometimes They Don’t Make Sense
Refrigerator

which I emailed to my friends Jeff and Tamara, who responded in kind:

Haikus Are OK
If You Like That Sort Of Thing
The Giving Wombat

to which I responded:

Sometimes I wonder
What life is really about
Platypus Rainbow

So there you have it. Dazzle me. You’ll be glad you did…

(Or not.)

    >May I start by submitting an old one I did on my blog when I was bragging that I knew so much about wrestling that I could write a haiku about a half nelson?

    Hand under the arm
    free arm under the other

    Can't take turns in line.
    Why be mean fourth grade parents?
    God saw that, white jeep!

    Kat, I've been praying for a smooth sailing procedure and a quick recovery.

    The twitter is lonely today
    It just doesn't feel the same
    That's what she said

    Katdish advice, Why'd I listen?
    Silly Neti Pot.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Strange sense of humor
    I embrace you like the night
    Lemming tortilla

    >And now, "Cricket":

    Shiny black cricket
    A tasty treat for the cat
    Chirp! Crunch. Then, silence.

    (I think Haiku brings out my dark side…)
