Playtus Rainbow Revisited

Back on September 22, I posted a short series of haikus entitled Platypus Rainbow in honor of having outpatient surgery that day. (Just smile and nod like you understand.) I also invited everyone to post their own haikus.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the HLAC Comments Section:

Dory said:

May I start by submitting an old one I did on my blog when I was bragging that I knew so much about wrestling that I could write a haiku about a half nelson?

Hand under the arm
free arm under the other
lock together wrists

Helen said:

The supermarket
is the perfect place to dance
for those named Helen

Nick the Geek said:

This week is busy
Oh boy I am very tired
Please pass the Monster

Marni said:

Here's a haiku about my experience in the elementary school drop off line this morning...

Can't take turns in line.
Why be mean fourth grade parents?
God saw that, white jeep!

Steph at the Red Clay Diaries said:

Oh Katdish wake up
Your audience awaits you.
Tweet some crazy sh*t

Steph at the Red Clay Diaries said:

I almost forgot
About the haiku challenge.
Thank you for the Tweet

Annie K said:

Steph said a bad word
But Katdish won't give a rip
She's looped on pain meds

BridgetChumbley said:

Katdish is my twitter idol
Her tweets make everyone smile
Fried pie is amazing

BridgetChumbley said:

I had an inspiration for another so here goes:

The twitter is lonely today
It just doesn't feel the same
That's what she said

David said...

My nose is dripping.
Katdish advice, Why'd I listen?
Silly Neti Pot.

Hope you feel better soon.

Jason said:

Once upon a time
Little fairies drove steamboats
Don't shake a baby

Marni said:

Email from Sherri
What kind of meat do you like?

Glynn said:

Katdish surgerized;
Asleep, cracking herself up.
Time for a rant soon.

Helen said:

Twitter ho's unite
to comfort our wounded friend
surround her with love

Beth said:

Dude! Jason, I'm not even on pain killers and that CRACKED ME UP. Why? I have no idea...

Strange sense of humor
I embrace you like the night
Lemming tortilla

Sarah Salter said:

I like to call this one "Frog":

It is still raining
I have mud between my toes
Oh no! A Truck! Splat.

Shark Bait said:

Once I had a life.
It was full and rewarding.
Now I have a blog.

Annie K said:

Oh our dear Katdish
We are having so much fun
At your expense. Dang.

Sarah Salter said:

And now, "Cricket":

Shiny black cricket
A tasty treat for the cat
Chirp! Crunch. Then, silence.

(I think Haiku brings out my dark side...)

Vanities of Vanities said:

Must obey Father
Despite your persecution
Here, still not a Twit

Doug Spurling said:

What is a haiku
a poem of some kind
or Chuck Norris


JML said...

I didn't do this
Oh where did you hide the beer
now i can write a post.


vanilla said...

Pick up your award.
It awaits you at my blog.
Keep the joy coming.

Andrea said...

What fun!

Blessings, andrea

Shark Bait said...

You may have noticed,
I loves me a good Haiku.
This was fun for all.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

A fog sucked my head
The day you asked for haiku
Faulty engagement

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

Read those to Charlie.
He just rolled his eyes at me.
Vinegar cobbler.

The disclaimer -
(read really fast without breathing)
This is my first try at haikus.

Need a site designed
You want it done perfectly
Call katdish, say wow

(as you can see I had to delete my first comment, because it wasn't right:(

Melissa from the Blue House said...

I missed this post originally. It made me have a flashback to high school English and all that pain and agony. But this so fun that I had to try... haven't done this since high school...

Disturbing to hear
Sounds of rustling mice
Thisclose to my feet

Anonymous said...

if only i knew
how to do the boogaloo
i would dance with you

Joanne Sher said...

If I need to laugh
Or shake head in confusion
I know where to go.

Also missed the first one.

Marni said...

Loved the haiku blog
Oh katdish, you complete me
Syllable donkey
