Silly Haiku Wednesday

Join the fun!
It's that time again over at Jenn's blog. You should try it yourself -- you know you want to! This week's theme is separation -- which could go just a whole lot of ways, couldn't it?

I grew up Army;
moving and saying good-bye
seemed normal to me.

The Golden Compass
gave "separation" a whole
new meaning: tragic.

Cooking is so not
My thing. Separating eggs --
Harder than it looks!


  1. Wow, the first one is a sad statement, isn't it? Great, yet sad at the same time :( A very thoughtful haiku day I think. We need it though, every once in a while!

    Nice job!

  2. I love the egg one, proves that there are so many ways to interpret a topic - well thought of!

    It must have been hard to move from place to place especially when you are so young and trying to establish bonds with friends.

  3. I hear you on the egg one. I cant do it either. I thought the GC was great, just bummed out that the other books wont become movies

  4. Oh, The Golden Compass one made me so sad - separation from one's daemon - ahhh!!!

    Much as he drives me
    crazy, I hate being gone
    from him for too long.

  5. Maureen, my cyber
    friend -- though separated by
    distance, you feel close.

  6. Hey, isn't that my butter dish???? xxoox, Coleen

  7. A friend who covets
    A butter dish pays homage --
    But the dish is mine.

  8. Great haikus! The egg one was my favorite...I was just talking to a friend yesterday about how I am 26 and still not allowed to separate the eggs for a special cake my grandma makes :/

  9. I love all 3 of your Haikus!

    I really relate to the Army one though, having lived the Army life for the past 6 years.

  10. I think they make a funny tool to make separating eggs easier. :)

  11. Military families are so resilient, Jessica -- your soldier couldn't do what he does without you!

    I am intrigued that so many find the "Army" haiku sad or bittersweet. It really did seem normal to me as I was growing up -- and I have so many "best friends!" It was not a negative experience for me!

  12. Oooh! Egg separator thingie! My mom had one of those when I was growing up -- but I feel like I remember needing three hands to use it . . .?
