"She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain." -- Louisa May Alcott
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!
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.
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
Oh, The Golden Compass one made me so sad - separation from one's daemon - ahhh!!!Much as he drives mecrazy, I hate being gonefrom him for too long.
Maureen, my cyberfriend -- though separated bydistance, you feel close.
Hey, isn't that my butter dish???? xxoox, Coleen
A friend who covetsA butter dish pays homage --But the dish is mine.
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 :/
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.
I think they make a funny tool to make separating eggs easier. :)
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!
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 . . .?
