Sunday Blizzard Coziness

Posted on

 

I’ve been sleeping in today, after all it’s Sunday and I have the day off. In front of me is a whole day of coziness. Outside it’s a blizzard and whatever plans I had of walking to the ocean has been postponed. Instead I’m still in my pajamas, I have the radio on and listening to christmas music, sipping my coffee while looking out on the blowing snow.

On the table is a small stack of christmas cards. I haven’t sent out any cards in the past few years but this year I’ve been wanting to, especially after reading Jensine’s blog some days back. I’m only going to send to a few loved ones living far away, a small group of friends whom I wish I could spend time with on a more regular basis. Later today I have a Skype date with one of these good friends and I can’t wait to see her face and get updated on what’s going on in her life. How did we ever cope with only being able to communicate through letters in physical form? I still send postcards and I love getting them but that’s more a just for fun thing..

So that’s it for today. It’s hardly going to be an action packed day and I should be able to get a little reading done as well as getting ready for tomorrows last school day of the semester.

And then just letting my mind wander with the blizzard..

 

A Sunday Haiku Showdown

Posted on Updated on

 

First of all, allow me to present the participants:

 

  Kyle

and

  myself

 

It all started with…

**

“from the love I have

through the pain I will embrace

to the life I want”

**

And then continued with…

 

Kyle

i love this poem

realityinprogress

my body was weak

replying was put on hold

i had to get food

Kyle

i understand you

we all need some nourishment

it was worth the wait

realityinprogress

happily admit

this poetry geekery

is making me laugh

Kyle

it makes me laugh too

poetry can be such fun

and good for the soul

realityinprogress

who would have known that

until experiencing

expression in short

Kyle

i think we should try

to post this conversation

on both of our blogs

realityinprogress

i say let’s do it

post this haiku nerdery

i just wonder how

Kyle

i find it a thrill

to squeeze my words so tightly

into such a form

realityinprogress

i really agree

maybe the future will be

one-word poetry

Kyle

i like that idea

let me have a go at it

here is my word – poem

realityinprogress

truely love your word

for me another one though

‘love’ my word will be

Kyle

your word is so sweet

and i find myself thinking

our words are the same

realityinprogress

maybe all words are

same reflection of a truth

we find in all hearts

Kyle

i think you are right

and very clever, that is

when shall we publish?

realityinprogress

let’s do it right now

we’ll each make a version and

publish when ready

Kyle

i was just about

to say exactly the same

what shall we call it?

realityinprogress

hmm i’m not sure yet

maybe Haiku Geekery

or what do you think?

Kyle

i have to cook now

but i am coming right back

what fun this has been

realityinprogress

go eat without stress

i’m just working out the form

playing with design

realityinprogress

I’m ready to post

A Sunday Haiku Showdown

you like the title?

Kyle

i like it a lot

a sunday haiku showdown

ready when you are

realityinprogress

okay let’s go then

put this boat in the ocean

*that was really lame*

 

I’ve never done a Haiku before and then suddenly one was there, coming from I don’t know where. But seriously, how awesome is Haiku?!

I just had so much fun :D

 

And do go and check out Kyle’s amazing version of our WP synergy on kylemew.com – you will not be disapointed.

Btw here is the original version (or just scroll down) – somehow the conversation order tweaked a bit, though.. Ah well..
