Week 4--Couch to 5K--Haiku Run and a Poetry Contest

We didn't get to run on Friday because Dave's schedule was criznazy. However, we took advantage of Saturday morning and did our runs then. It was my "Haiku Run". What do I mean by that?

Well, I was an English teacher.

Haikus are poems that have three lines. The first line is 5 syllables, the second is 7 syllables, and the third is 5 syllables. Like this:

Swift like racing wind,
Are my feet, flying and quick.
To run is to soar.

Okay, that's a cheesy haiku, but that's what they look like...

What does a haiku have in common with my schedule? Well, on Saturday, I walked 5 min, ran 7 min, and walked 5 min...a haiku run. Clever? I don't know about that.

Today I am also supposed to have a haiku run. I am hoping to get that in at some point this afternoon or when Dave gets home. The sun rising late is a bit inconvenient.

Okay, now it is your turn. Write a haiku (5, 7, 5) and post it in the comments. Best haiku (in my opinion) will be painted on a canvas and hung in my house somewhere. I so promise.


  1. Here you go. I got a little carried away. Here are a few about my babe:

    Watching my sweet girl
    She has a smile on her face
    What a precious gift

    Her hair is dark brown
    Her eyes are glistening blue
    Her lips are rosy

    This is about her hair:
    Sticking up in back
    Matted after a long nap
    Holds bows so sweetly

    Loves to cuddle mom
    Looks at the world with big eyes
    Kicks her tiny legs

    Are you doing the painting? Just wondering!
    I'm on week two of couch to 5K. It looked easy, but is harder than I thought. It took me two weeks to do the first week. Hopefully I will do better this week.

  2. I had to do one more:

    She is my sweet pea
    We call her sweety baby
    She is Madelyn

    I love to write these!

  3. it's time for dinner
    inspiration is missing
    leftovers again

  4. Geidl's United
    God's Kingdom is advancing
    Instruments of God


Let me know you stopped by! I love reading your comments!
