Sum up Your Day in the Form of a Haiku

This is a game from a networking site.

Ten days ago (15/7/09) I wrote:

still in warm nightwear
should be transcribing Minutes
it's too cold for work

I've decided to do more of these – every day would be a bit much, but sometimes. They're more like senryu than haiku, and maybe not much like either, but I like the summing up aspect and I think they fit better here than in my haiku blog.

Today's effort is:

wrestle computer
eat, walk, shop, talk to husband,
wrestle computer

(it's old and it's slow
and being that way myself
too much frustration)


  1. What a lovely idea. I have been having a poetry lull recently, both the writing and the reading of. I'm not really sure why but I'm going with it for the time being since it doesn't seem to be stopping me from writing or reading in other mediums!

  2. It happens. I think it's probably a built-in safety mechanism to stop us going stale on it.
