Sensational Haiku Wednesday: June 29, 2011

Join the fun!Is it really almost the end of June? Where has the month gone? School resumes in just four, short weeks!

This week's theme to Jenn's Sensational Haiku Wednesday, over at You Know...That Blog? is living.

Since I've always considered life somewhat of a rollercoaster, this is the bend I chose to take on this week's theme. It reminds me of the internet joke floating around about arriving in Heaven, not clean, pristine and neat, but all used up and saying, "Man! What a ride!"

Hold on for the ride
Rollercoaster lifts and drops
Get out your barf bag

After it all stops
After the world stops spinning
It was almost fun

You have survived it
Stronger; In one piece even
It wasn’t that bad

The Merry-Go-Round
Just goes round, and round, and round
What’s the fun in that?

In the moment; life!
Live it long, strong, loud and proud
You only get one

Until next time...


  1. Great collection of haiku :O)

  2. Resonates!! :D

  3. Believe it or not, merry go rounds and other things that go in circles are far more likely to make me sick than the wildest roller coaster. go figure. good thing - my life is an extreme roller coaster ride! No hands!!

  4. Oh, I know! As I get older, I can't do the merry go rounds or the tilt a whirls - no way, no how.

  5. Exactly! Well, I'm not partial to barf bags so I avoid activities that might require one, but you've got to raise the adrenaline sometimes! Well done :)
