A Haiku for Lotus

Posted by adamswife on March 14, 2008

More Haiku

lotus-flower.jpg

It’s all about the Lotus flower

She’s the beautiful,
Sarcastic Lotus flower
Who brings us laughter;
*****
She shares butt pictures
Of the Braden macho man
And shots of the rack.
***** 
The Mexican, too,
Makes us laugh right out loud
As he licks his chops.
***** 
Now there is trouble–
Braden, Lotus, and John ill;
The walls black with mold.
***** 
They’ve found a new home
But finances are iffy.
Some friends have jumped in
***** 
To help pay the cost.
If you’d like to contribute

A Hair Haiku

Posted by adamswife on February 22, 2008

For More Haiku
I promised pictures
Of my new perm.  Here they are.
At the beauty shop
After Perm
Kathy always says
How cute it looks when she’s done.
I wanted to see.
New Perm
This is how it looks
After I style it myself.
I like it nat’ral. 
 
It’s much easier
To wash and wear than to fool
With the blow dryer.

The Snow Plow and Me

Posted by adamswife on February 7, 2008

Snow keeps getting deeper
Plows come ’round at last
Leave deep pile behind my car

I don’t notice that it’s there
Back into the pile
Stuck tight in big pile of snow

Shovel snow beneath the car
Litter for traction
Neighbor helps me get it out

“Daughter, you didn’t warn me”
“What snow pile?” she asks
Her truck takes me to the store

Four-wheel drive so comforting
To the store and back
I go and come home to stay

What Color Is Your Brain?

Posted by adamswife on January 25, 2008

I‘m not feeling too creative today.  Didn’t have anything profound or funny or even mildly interesting to say.  So I posted a “Friday Feast” thinking to skip the Haiku this week.  Then I visited Jientje and found her blogthing about the brain.  And I visited some blogs with very nice haikus posted.  What can I say?  They inspired me.  This is the result.

Didn’t know what to do
Then I learned my brain is blue
This is my haiku 
Visit A Mommy Story for more haiku
Your Brain is Blue


Of all the brain types, yours is the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don’t try to think away your troubles.Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.
