Thursday Things

Haiku Poems

Ever since my previous post on haiku poetry & examples, I have continued to write experiment with them. Here are some of my recent musings.

A haiku on love

I wonder my heart
will you love me in the fall
when my colors change

A haiku on longing

I wish I knew why
whenever you are away
my heart always hurts

And a funny haiku on social networks

So much boredom time
oh Facebook application
you have prevented

    I like the YouTube movies! My favorite one is the “did you know” clip… but I was naively waiting for an answer at the end :P
    And it’s fun to know that 1 in 8 couples in USA met over the Internet. Wow. And when you ask them, Internet never seems to be in their “story”… weird ;)

    @mermaid, Hamdani: I have watched that video a lot on my ipod. With the music, it is very awesome.

    @jois: Thanks!

    @Wayne: I liked the racket best.

    @Dennis: You’re welcome.

    @Yan: Hope you had a great one too! :)

    @Mr. Muggles: My theory on online dating when I tried it was if I could order a pizza, clothing, schedule classes, etc. online, why not find a date? Of course, I do enjoy the fact that I met my sweetie the old fashioned way. :)

    @Ben: That’s what I created Thursday Things for… all the random cool things I come across during the week.
