Silly Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Silly Haiku Wednesday!”

Click here for info and background on this weekly event!

The basics:

Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively (a great way to use your fingers!)

This week’s theme is: Time

My submission for this week:

Watch days flying by
Fleeting days of babies grown
A certain sadness


Next week’s theme: Passion – what are you passionate about?

Note: Nothing makes me happier than to see new people getting “hooked on haiku”! Keep it going to make it to the Hooked on Haiku List

    Awwww… I FEEL that! Whenever I’m asked if I “miss” anyone right now, I always say I miss my babies! I used to really WISH that we could have the LAST one stay little forever. But now that they’re all grown… I see that a little differently! :)

    As I promised, I tried my best. This is my first entry, not sure it is so called “Haiku”. But I like the theme, “TIME”, What I see in life

  6. Yes. Absolutely the cruelest game played by mistress time.

    It’s fun to see the kids as they become their own people, with quirks and whatnot. :)

    Next week’s haikus might be racey! :o

    Jenn — sorry I’m late. I’ve been distracted by water woes! Pipes are fixed and we’re “flush” again. ;)

    Your haiku has long been every parent’s lament. Too soon grown and gone.

  11. Rachael says:

    As a new mom I totally am feeling your haiku right now! I never really realized how fast time flies until I had my baby! Thanks again for hosting such a fun weekly challenge!
