Instead of #SuperShort – #Haiku

Due to a flu that refused to release its hold of me (until today, after finally giving in on Monday and going to the doctor who gave me antibiotics for my stubborn, and lung-wrenching cough), a planned but unwelcome trip, and a stressful week, there won’t be a #SuperShort on the blog today. I’ll save the four words left to me last week (cupcakes – cherry – poppycock – bloodshed) and write the next part in Alan and Jon’s story for next Friday. (Read part 1 and 2).

But to not leave you hanging completely, I give you a haikuΒ instead. I love writing (and reading ofc!) poetry but don’t like poems that go on for pages and pages, so the short format of the haiku appeals to me. And I have a folder full of them on my computer, just for times like these, when life hasn’t been cooperating with my urge to write.

I hope you like it. Have a great Friday and weekend. (And if you’re really not a fan of poetry, you can always pop over to my friend Addison and read her fabulous Friday #FlashFiction story in the meantime πŸ™‚ )

  1. I’m glad to hear you’re finally feeling better! πŸ€’

    A soundbite’s worth of poetry is just the thing. I’m like youβ€”with exceptions, I prefer it not to go on for pages. This one is lovely even without the beautiful image that goes so perfectly with your Haiku. πŸ˜ƒ

    Thank you so much for the shout-out. You’re the best! πŸ’•

    1. Thank you so much, I’m glad you liked it. ❀️ And yes, I’m so freaking happy to finally feel better. Two whole weeks of the flu is waaaaay to much. Can’t remember when I felt this crappy the last time.

      And of course I’ll send readers your way. I know not everyone likes poetry – even if it’s about two boys – so rather than being grumpy over bad content on my blog, I’d rather send them to you! ❀️
