Silly Haiku Wednesday: Guilty Pleasure

photo courtesy of Google search: 

Guilty Pleasures

Zinfandel, Bordeaux,
Cabernet and Pinot Noir.
Nectar of the gods.

Sweet dark chocolate.
Private stash, hidden away.
My little secret!

Housewives of O.C.
Why am I drawn to this trash?
Like watching train wreck.

Guilty pleasures dwell
in feelings they deliver.
Is it worth all that?

For more Haiku hijinks, please visit Jen over at You Know...that Blog?

Join the fun!

The basics:

Haiku is simple! 
It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively 
(a great way to use your fingers!)

Lastly, there is a really cool giveaway over at Weezer's Haven. You have to check it out!

Ha! I love your haiku today! Wine, Dark are my kind of woman! LOL

Purple Flowers said...

Great haiku's! I wish I could come up with something, but the brain has run dry. Maybe I should try the wine?!

Julie Schuler said...

Yummy. I love dark chocolate and no one else here does. So when we get a bag of Hershey's Miniatures, those bad boys are all mine! Not as creamy as the better chocolates, like Ghirardelli, but good budget chocolates nevertheless.

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

Ohhh, that last one sounds intriguing! ;) I so wish I enjoyed wine, but sadly, it does not agree with me.

Have a fabulous day!

--Jenn <-- 2 N's... Just sayin'... ;)

Kathleen said...

Oh, a woman after my own heart...especially that second one about dark chocolate and stashing away and secrets and stuff.

Ms Bibi said...

What can be better then wine & chocolate. The perfect guilty pleasure.

Great Haiku.

Erin said...

Nice one! I wish I had time to write Haiku's....I really need to set aside time to do more writing!

Have a great day!!

LarryG said...

Janet in Toronto said...

Definitely "worth all that"! Love your poetry!

***Holly*** said...

JadeLD said...

I agree with all yours! Red wine for me and any kind of chocolate too. I'd like some cheese with my red wine though ;)

Jayde said...

Corrie Howe said...

I wish I had some talent in the poetry area.

Your Haikus are very clever

I'm a full-time mummy... said...

"I just love Kit Kat,
And all other chocolates,
Can't live without it..."

Phewww.... that took some serious thinking to get it out! Anyway, thanks for this great post and thanks for making my brain cells work... ;D

I think I'm getting better. It just takes practice.

Thanks for the GiveAway plug.

Erin said...

These are so cute. Especially the Housewives one!

drollgirl said...

i have six million guilty pleasures! i can't explain why the oc housewives aren't on the list, but i make up for it in other ways!

Lissaloo said...

I was curious as to what your guilty pleasures were, chocolate , wine and drama very nice :)

Raoulysgirl said...

I was a little shocked! I knew the wine and chocolate (although NOT where the chocolate is stashed!) but the drama made me gasp!

It's ok...I watch trash tv too...just not that particular show!!! LOL!

Life Laugh Latte said...

I'm with Raoulysgirl...shocked about the tv show detail. Love it though...good to see you have at least one adorable fault. Have a great day. Holly

Holly said...

Love your haiku's - I mean wine and chocolate what more can you ask for! I will admit that I too am drawn to that OC Housewife trash...I love reality TV, but that show is truly trash...and it sucks me in every time.

Kimberly said...

Love the Haiku. Chocolate and wine, so yummy.

I don't watch much tv, Reality shows are not my thing. I like Desperate housewives, and Brothers and Sisters. Those are 2 shows I watch alone.

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

Wow, I would've never guessed you to be a Housewives watcher! It really can draw you in, though, can't it? It always makes me gratfeul for my own friends/family!
