Sensational Haiku Wednesday


Jen at youknowthatblog.com hosts this. I can't play often because my M-W is usually pretty crazy, but sometimes I get inspired.  Or not. You can decide.  This week's theme:
Crabby


We scuttle sideways
Avoiding issues that hurt
Back under that rock!

And just so you all know, I'm really not usually crabby. I've been described as relentlessly cheerful. I prefer to think it was a compliment.

Oh wow - relentlessly cheerful. I might have to step away from you sideways if it's too early in the morning LOL.

Love the haiku - very well done!

Thom said...

Excellent my friend. I would take that as a compliment as well.

I find that the darkness under the rock may be familiar and it is lonely. Used to retreat when I was hurt.

Like yourself, glad that I am not usually crabby. Often accused of being to chipper.

Love the language of this post.

This has to be the best use of the prompt I have read all day you used the obsure and made it obvious!

I can just see crabby glowering at the world from under the rock!

Nice haiku :)

I have found nothing irritates people more at 5 am than being bright and cheery... so I do it often mwahahaha!

So happy to see you!! Made my day. I think you did great, even if I had to make you crabby to get you back with us ;) Well done!

Your haiku is my favorite of the lot. (Don't tell anyone I said that.) I, too, am relentlessly cheerful, but we all have our crabby moments.
