New Year Haiku

Five, seven and five
Is the meter of haiku.
Shouldn’t be so hard.

Of course, haiku is not so strict.
Point is, first and third get the same count, yes?
and then the middle row has more.

Happiness Project,
The. By a Gretchen Rubin.
Start now or wait til _____?

She has done research
on just what is this ‘Happy?’
Many quotes to share.

Court Justice Stewart
said, “I know it when I see it.”
(on what is obscene?*)
* He meant to define obscenity, but Rubin applies to happiness.

Am not really read-
ing this book. Yet. Cuz want to
start Miss Pettigrew first!
(in trend to start new year fresh with a new book…)

Happiness and feeling good;
Just what is a very cool life?
I aim to discover.

Goal is 50 books
(with a secret conniving:
will read many more.)

One goal is to move.
Move often and stretch first.
Drink lots of water.

I want to crave poetry.
I do not yet but want to.
Neon Vernac’lar.

New authors to try:
Krakauer and Mary Roach,
Perotta, O’Nan.

Susan Jane Gilman
Elliot, Miéville, Rowling,
and Mitchell and Yates.

Authors to repeat:
Atwood, Kidder, McEwan,
and DuMaurier.

Maree and I and maybe
Vasilly; Will tweet!

Haiku is not so
Difficult once you start it.
Happy, happy, joy.

Wishing my readers
a healthy happy Twenty
Twelve.  Joyful, book-filled

Thanks for helping me to make 2011 another wonderful book-blogging adventure. Looking forward to more in 2012.
