Hi Weegie,

You have the feel of Haiku down beautifully.

The rules of Haiku are simple;

a poem of three phrases,

phrase one contains 5 syllables,

phrase two contains 7 syllables,

phrase three contains 5 syllables.

 

so, make a haiku

from your sweet poem written

it might look like this

 

 thinking of you too  (5 syllables)

 not sure how to do haiku (7 syllables)

    did I do this one ?  (5 syllables)

 

glad our haiku friends

continue a tradition 

in new smoke free home.

My mom is awake!

Her prognosis looking up

It's a miracle!

 

(It's been 11 days of touch and go but her waking up finally has given the drs, and us, hope that she can recover. I can't begin to thank you all for the prayers and positive thoughts)

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
