Silly Haiku Wednesday

Jenn's at it again.
This week's theme is passion!
Quel plaisir! But first:

Check out this award!
A gift from Jenn at this blog --
She has made my day!

Now -- I'll pass it on
to a housewife just like me
(except funnier).

My passion is books.
They teach me, move me, slay me
I'm carried away!

Hated him for years.
Avoided his gaze -- it burned.
Then I married him.

Oh, that you would kiss
me with the kisses of your mouth --
your love: sweet as wine.

-- Solomon 1: 2

  1. Congrats on the award! And love the snippet about avoiding the burned..and then I married him. LOVED IT!

  2. Way to go on the AWARD - and so fitting with today's theme (yes my mind goes in the gutter when I see this award)

    I can relate to the HATED him for years ... then I married him.

  3. Hey, hey, hey! Thank you for the award. I'm blown away!

    I'm clueless as to the ins and outs of blogging, as far as awards and other tits-for-tats. I will think of a way to repay you. It might not be the hippest bloggy way, but I'll think of something.

    Thanks again. I love your blog.

  4. Yeah, I think I like the hated him/married him best. They are all wonderful and I really like your use of imagery!

  5. that ran the gamut -
    explored vast terrain with zest
    fundamental truth

    i loved this --
    very cool

  6. Better to hate him before you marry him than after.

    Congrats on the award!

  7. Congratulations on your award. I got one to match this week too - quite a cool award!

    Love your many haiku especially the one 'I married him' which seems to be the most popular. I know what you mean about getting carried away with a book too, time just disappears when I get hooked on a good book.

  8. ...but how do you feel about him NOW? Does he read your blog? heeheehee

    Love that one especially - great job!

  9. I can't even rhyme...I do it all the time...but I think yours is fine:) Notice that it doesn't really rhyme:) Holly at

  10. I used to have it.
    Then I got kids and a job.
    Now it's once a month.
