My haiku contribution.

Haiku in blogland.
Trying to think of my own.
Silly peer pressure.

My blogfriend, Rinda is great at coming up with clever ideas to get us thinking in common. She recently posted a photo, wrote a haiku to go with it, and challenged her readers to do the same. I instantly loved the idea and vowed to do one myself.

Day after day went by; and each day brought a new haiku on a familiar blog. With each one that I read I thought, "Oh! I need to do my own before I read too many more of these... What if I can't come up with something original?!?!"

That's when I came up with the haiku at the top of my post. It's sarcastic, I know. I can be that way at times. But I've been counting syllables on my fingers for the past week and it was the first one I wrote that worked!

Alright. Let's be serious. My niece Presley lost her first tooth last weekend - Carrie pulled it for her! So...
Carrie pulled her tooth.
The tooth fairy comes tonight.
Presley's new milestone.

Sarcastic or not - you really are a cutie! Congrats to your niece - she must be so excited!

Mom said...

Okay, I think I've got it! Can't do it but I've got it!! I had to Google haiku--how sad is that? Ouch, shouldn't have owned up to that on a public site!

Love this pic of Pres! And your cute haiku! xo

I'm going to own up here to googling for a syllable counter, but ssh! don't tell everyone lol. I love what you did with it Deb.

It was worth waiting for! Does make you kind of obsessive about counting syllables though doesn't it?!
Love the missing tooth picture - such a big milestone in growing up.

Two great haiku's. Specially like the sarcastic one at the top! It does get to you like that doesn't it lol!

Karen said...

Love the Haiku - I can't do with wobbly teeth and the children at school know this and say 'Miss' and when I look round wobble a hanging out tooth and watch me almost vomit on the spot!

But I do like lovely cute gappy smiles.

Amy said...

Very, very clever Miss Deb! Karen is funny about her wobbly tooth comment - I was a bit the same last Sunday when one came out over here :-)

Love, love, love the one at the top! I know what you mean about peer pressure, and I love the line "haiku in blogland."

I think both Haiku's are great! Gotta love that tooth fairy!

Looks like you had a wonderful time at your adorable Grandma's party. I loved the vintage photos of her.
All the pics of little Presley with your Carrie are ADORABLE!!! : )
Have a good week,
Mary Lou
