Haiku Friday

Neglection of blog
leads to a heart broken of
no comment sorrow.

I'm back! I'm posting
again--no one knows or cares.
Was I gone too long?

Blog friends are missing
blog world not immune to change
even games are gone

Sarah's flown the coop--
on a break from FFF,
so I will haiku.

Haiku day? How fun!
Always new memes and new friends
in the blogosphere.

When I first started my blog, I went through a phase during which I participated in several memes (blog games) and had a lot of fun doing it. Over the past year however, I just haven't had the time to devote to regular blogging and have done a lot of cheating (several times, I've caught up with a little of what's going on by backdating posts, so I still have some entries that show my son's antics because the purpose of Life in the Woods is to have a sort of diary for him).

Now that I find myself unemployed and husbandless for the moment (no divorce--see previous post), I'm feeling the need to find some memes again. A long time ago, I ran across haiku Friday and bookmarked it, but now that I have the time to play, it looks like there's not as many people participating. It still looks fun though! The English teacher in me loves the idea of writing in haiku form. :) For those of you that may not know, a haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that follows a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. For more info go here.

In a few weeks, chaos will return. I'm taking a few classes, I might find an online teaching job, who knows? I'll probably post regularly for a bit then flake out again. Oh, well. I've never claimed to be consistent. Have I? If I have, I lied.

Hi! I care that you're back!

Thanks for joining us for Haiku Friday. (No button required!) It has gotten lighter lately -- a bit of summer, I expect, and since it just switched to my blog last week there's probably an adjustment period as well.

Glad to have you for Haiku Friday! Great Haiku this week, I have been on a bit of a hiatus too, and finally having a few comments has made me smile!

Your haiku was gay.
But I love you and I've read
you every day.

Does that count? I LOVE MY JENELLEy your haiku wasn't really of a non hetrosexual nature. It just rhymed with day.
