Lazy Hippie Mama: In Haiku (Nablopomo Day 13)


*This post is Day Thirteen of the January Nablopomo 30-day blogging challenge hosted by BlogHer.

Sweet Hippie Daughter saw this on the “One Hundred Dollars a Month” Facebook page and has found it endlessly amusing for the past week or so.

Lazy Hippie Mama: in Haiku |

I was trying to think of something a little different for the blog today, having to do with the prompts centering on habits. I decided that since I’ve been in the habit of writing in prose for all this time, perhaps I would take inspiration from “A Winter Haiku.”

Here is the story of me, as portrayed in four verses of Haiku. Hope it gives you a little smile.

I seek to live green.

Sometimes it’s a lot of work.

Then I get lazy.

I seek to be thin.

Lazy eating makes me fat.

I can’t reach my toes.

I seek perfection,

in body, mind and spirit.

I am not there yet.

I am content now,

Knowing that growth continues.

Love this life of mine!

  1. Haha. Don’t we all know that pee feeling well? In the morning I’m often reminded of the Calvin and Hobbes cartoon where Calvin, from under the covers, shouts, “I’m not coming out until it’s as warm out there as it is in here!”

    • I’d be willing to bet people from cold climates have a much greater ability to “hold it” than those who’ve never known the pain of a frost-covered toilet seat! LOL
