Sensational Haiku Wednesday-Comfort Zone

Actual family photo taken on the beaches of Ocho Rios, Jamaica, 2008


Caribbean Comfort

Bone chilling rain falls.
Dark, damp, dreary days ahead.
Jamaica calls me!

Rum drinks on beaches,
Warm weather; exotic food.
Cabana boys, too!


But until return,
I will have to make do with
My Snuggie instead!


Photo actually taken within the confines of the Sister House

Oh yes please Jamiaca, rum, sunshine, food and Cabana boys too sounds great! Back to reality, I don't even have me a Snuggie, may have to get one of those!

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday.

Lovely warm haiku. Very much needed for today. I am watching the black clouds of today's second hit approaching. Brrr!

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Yowsa! I could use a stay in Jamaica too! I haven't been back in about 20 years. I think the rum on the beach is probably why I don't recall half of that trip, either ;)

Good ones!

(fixed the link - you had an extra "l" on the end of the html. No biggie!)

Pelican Joe said...

Ah, Jamaica. Good times! All-inclusive (including drinks!) It doesn't get better than that! Yah Mon!

Kathleen said...

I'm sitting here reading your haikus. The kids just yelled, "It's snowing!" I said, "Yeah, right!" But, no, sure enough--the sun's out, but there are flurries flying around. How I wish I was actually in your haiku!! I need some warmth around here; it's always so hard to imagine that in a few months it'll be hot and muggy!

Julie Schuler said...

Rum on the beach! That just screams sunstroke to me. I hope the cabana boys know CPR ;)

Chanda the Eco-Cheap Mom said...

Ha! You made me chuckle...cabana boys. Love it! Oh, and I really want a snuggie! I refuse to buy one for myself but I keep dropping hints to the hubs. Unfortunately he hasn't bought me one, yet. Maybe Valentine's Day?

Michelle Hoad said...

It's actually cold here in Texas so that picture makes me long for some warm weather. I still don't own a snuggie and I feel like the only person on the planet who doesn't. I'm 38 and still succumbing to peer pressure.

Michelle said...

Cute!

never been to Jamaica...

You have a lovely family!

Mumsy said...

Great family photo, and your picture is what I'm going to do today..I don't want to go outside to shovel the snow..well wait..Jamaica here I come.

Ria said...

I must be weird, but a cold dark rainy day with a cup of coffee and fire going is more comforting to me.

Joshua said...

Oh you people and your Snuggies.

Mmmm...warm weather and mixed rum drinks. Takes me back.

I'm thirsty now.

Rebecca said...

Beautiful photo - it is time to go back to the Caribbean!
Stay warm in the meantime.

quilly said...

Since I can't have JAmacia, I want a snuggie!

Corrie Howe said...

I'm thinking about trying Haiku for one of my Thursday Tackles, but I wasn't brave enough to start tomorrow. I tried stay under 55 words instead.

We love us our Snuggies too!

Brian Miller said...

lol. if this winter keeps up...the islands may find a new resident.

wonderful pic!

Tiffany said...

the husband and i went to jamaica on our honeymoon-- i'd trade it for all this wind in a second!

Purple Flowers said...

Jamaica sounds good right about now, but we are in the thick of a major snow storm. I think to make myself feel better about it, I'm going to make some hot cocoa :)
Lovely photo of you and the family!

Tracie said...

On a day like this Jamaica sounds perfect. Heck, I'd even go back to Aruba.

AJ said...

dude. my first week and I totally did the wrong theme. I did NEXT week's theme. I guess next week I'll do Comfort Zone.

I love it! Come and see mine! :)

Thom said...

I'll keep Hawai'i thank you very much :) Great Haiku's my friend. You always are so clever with these :) Have a great Wednesday :)

You make a Snuggie look good!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and commenting.

I used to always poke fun at Snuggies. My sister got me one as a joke for xmas, and I really like it and use it often!

Helen McGinn said...

LOVE the Haiku AND the pics. You look so snuggly under that fluffy thang, girl. ;O)

Thanks for stopping by the other day, it was lovely to see you. xx
