Last NaBloPoMo Post!

30 days! I did it. Two Novembers in a row I didn't miss a day. Woo hoo!

I will close the month, and the long weekend, out with a haiku or two. We just arrived home and it was a long drive in the snow which became rain south of Albany.

Here I am again
Back in familiar Jersey
And it's cold and wet.

Thanksgiving's over
And so is the long weekend
How quickly it flew.

I can't help but think
Our lives are also like that -
Flying by too fast.

When I was a child
Looking ahead to summer
It seemed like forever.

Now it just flies by
A few months of warm weather
Then winter is here.


(Sorry, think I'm having a little episode of Seasonal Affective Disorder here. Bear with me...)

I have already decided that I am going to refuse to return to school tomorrow. I am not going. Not.

If he stays home, I sure hope he vacuums the stairs.

Welcome home, Maui. May the sun shine tomorrow. I'm sick of the dreary weather too.

Mauigirl said...

Hi Mathman, I am in solidarity with you! We should go on strike!

DCup, even I would vacuum if I could stay home tomorrow (and I HATE to vacuum!) Thanks for the wishes for sun - I hope it happens for you. I think rain is forecast here though!

Never let it be said that Kvatch let the challenge of verse go unanswered:

'Black Friday' shopping...
Your patriotic duty.
Pray the doors stay on.

Mauigirl said...

Kvatch, that was a brilliant haiku and sadly appropriate!

Rhea said...

Congratulation are in order! I have never tried that.

Kuanyin Moi said...

Congrats---i've never taken on the challenge as it looked way too much!

Dave Dubya said...

This is contagious
I could blame it all on you
And be outrageous

Never wrote haiku
Thought it was a waste of time
Now what do I do?

Mauigirl said...

Thanks Rhea and Kuanyin - it's not that hard once you get into the habit of it!

Dave Dubya, you wrote some awesome haiku there! I hadn't done it before either but once I started doing it, it's hard to stop! And yours even rhyme!

Why do you all hate
the cold and the lovely snow?
Damn commie pinkos.

odessa said...

congrats on finishing napoblomo! and yes, i think i have seasonal affective disorder too. i was so sad to leave sunny San Diego. hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Mauigirl said...

Randal, a great haiku - and when it comes to snow, I do like it - in small doses!

Odessa, thanks! ;-) As for SAD, I think I've had it for years; I kind of hibernate in the winter! Hope your Turkey Day was great - ours was nice!
