Haikus of the Day


Today is the second group blogging day (the first was on May 10, with the subject of favorite blogs), and it's group blog haiku today. I mentioned yesterday how I felt bad about not being able to read through more of the blogathon blogs, but I've decided that this might be my opportunity-- if everyone's blog post for today is only 17 syllables a piece, I might be able to manage that.

Here are my efforts.

First, the shortest possible version of Saturday's false indigo post:

The false indigo
is abloom in the garden:
purple smoke indeed.

As well as a sad garden discovery:

The cat from next door
has napped on my baby greens.
Leaves crushed into soil.

I love that you wrote two haiku. Don't you think this was a great idea?

Oh, the cat napping on the baby greens made me laugh, although also sorry they were crushed.

like both of these. haiku is such a good discipline.

Ditto was Cara said about the crushed plants, but nice haiku ;)
