Silly Haiku Wednesday: Aftermath and New Beginnings

Last Week's Theme: Aftermath

What comes "aftermath"
Language arts and science do!
Homeschooling humor.


This Week's Theme: New Beginnings





Resolutions made.
Will this be the year of change?
Flee temptation's lure!


Next Week's Theme: The Road


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


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!)


Join the fun!

New Year's Day… now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.

I love what you came up with aftermath. You crack me up!

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

Yeah, you, Thom, Quilly, and I forget who else... all had the same *roll my eyes and groan* thought for the "aftermath". You people are rubbing off on each other... I'm sure there's a topical cream for that though...

Love your submissions ;)

Happy New Year! I hope 2010 is a great one for you. The first one did make me roll my eyes a bit, after-math - d'uh.

I've gone for the resolution too, I do tend to make one I can keep though which makes it easier!

I'm so tired from mopping up vomit all night that I didn't get it at first. How pathetic am I? Too funny once I got it.

He, he, he..."aftermath" I am still giggling..I am a geek!

AJ said...

1. I like your haikus.
2. I don't understand it. I have the same number of followers, but only half the number of comments. Should I start asking questions?

Ria said...

I never do resolutions!

It's come and it's gone.
What more could we have hoped for.
More hours to sleep.
