3 lines, 5 guys, 17 syllables, and a billion diapers

Occasionally I like to write haiku… or haikus… or is it haiki?  Anyway, here’s my life in a few 17-syllable poems:

one of those mornings
a crying baby.
i make coffee in my sleep.
is it nap time yet?

reciprocity?
love of a baby.
baylor has a gift for me…
oh — just poop and pee.


a source of all kinds of comfort
i appreciate:
lights, fans, fridges, water pumps, and…
electricity.


brevity
spilling from my head,
words pour forth. so much to say.
just short one sylla–


bacon, beef, and cheese
dreaming of five guys’ —
i’d really like a burger
with some cajun fries.

what i’m praying about
giving to others —
am i blessed or just selfish?
struggling with my faith.


Feel free to post your own haiku in the comments.  [Ted, I know you’ve got at least one for me.]

    Mind numbing meetings today.

    Three is a crowd so they say.
    Uncomfortable.
