six degrees outside

I’m peeing in an alley

Hubby standing guard

And I must say — the air wasn’t as cold on my private parts as I was dreading it to be! However, it’s possible I was just so relieved to be going that I didn’t even really register the cold! This must make me a true Minnesota girl!

I wanted those old

disagreements to die with

the year — they didn’t.

This haiku is personal. Today, on the first day of the year, I found myself struggling to hold back bitter words over arguments that Hubby and I have been having for months — his video gaming and where we should concentrate our house hunting efforts. Argh!

Yet as I sat down to type up this haiku, it struck me that these words are equally fitting in regards to the “fiscal cliff” debacle — which is almost as annoying as my reoccurring arguments with Hubby.

One bad habit I am vowing to break with from this past year, however, is my lackadaisical approach to this very blog, which overtook me last spring when I became a mom.

Seeing as how Haiku By Two began as a New Year’s Resolution on January 1, 2009, it seemed fitting that if I wanted to renew my haiku’ing muscle, then I should start doing so on the first day of the year. And so, here goes.

May the habit of haiku overtake me once again!

“I just want to talk to you…”

and we both cry

his lips on my cheek

then he’s gone — his scent stays with

me and my pillow

sleet snaps and hiccups

against the house all evening —

he deflects my barbs

our breath in the night 

white puffy clouds — in the bar

she talks of marriage
