Our Project

The goal of this page is family. As my family continues to scatter in the wind, we need to find a connection once again. A few years ago, when the whole family lived in one house, we played a game. We made haiku about household items. We laughed. We "family-ed"......

This is my family. Sharing our days. Our experiences. In haiku. I challenge each to learn about traditional Japanese Haiku and English Haiku. Most important though, I challenge my family to share in syllables.

Giving Something Up

Thought I would give up
something for lenten season.
Technology, hmmm?

Instead I gave up
ten days of my life sitting.
Felt miserable.

Now back to living,
getting organized again.
Going back to work.

(I wish I could add
single words to my haiku.
Just want to add.....yuck.)

Fat Tuesday

Jelly donuts - yum.
Fat Tuesday, Paczki Day, Shrove,
All the joy in life.

The day before lent
Indulging in fat, butter,
sugar, chocolate.

Give up chocolate?
NO...I think technology.
Giving up Facebook.

Forget that Netflix
and hours spent on computers.
Time to read a book.

Spouse is sick at home
Puppy is cuddling her
I send a doodle.

Each day one for sure
Sometimes two when she needs them
Bright sunshine drawings.

Makes her smile and grin
Makes the Puppy turn her head
A drawing a day.

On The Road

I am on the road,
the road to recovery.
Moving right along.

Spent some days sleeping
and eating anything that the
guy in the car brought.

Time to get moving
again on the path of health.
Time to cook real food.

Where have the days gone?
Like sands through the hourglass
These are the days of...

What happened?  My eyes
closed, and now they are open.
Days have disappeared.

Where did the time go?
Sitting, sleeping, cuddling pup.
Some crumpets for lunch.

When will this sickness
disappear into the wind?
I want my days back.

Kids Are So Nice

Want to take a day
A day to rest and relax
A day with no germs.

You see - I am sick.
You can not say kids don't share
they are sooooo polite!
