It’s that time again (haiku)

December 16, 2008

Brent woke me at six
to ask if school was canceled.
I said, “I DON’T KNOW!”

A moment later
he turned on the morning news
and got his answer.

Why have my children
been up since before sunrise…
well before normal?

It is so that they
could sit around all morning
at home and not school.

I doubt that I will
get very much done today
with the banshees here.

At least there is some
actual snow on the ground
for this occasion.

    Congratulations! In my experience, the totally natural haiku – which has to look accidental: as if the words just happen by chance to add up to 5,7,5,syllables – is amazingly difficult to achieve.

    You made it look easy!


  3. Whoa! Congratulations.
