April 18-24 and Haikus 18-24

Oh, blow me down. 
We have had a true braided-string of crazy at our house this past week.
Some biggish hurdles, some little Murphy's Law-type stuff.
But all put together in one big pile, sheesh, it was enough to make me a little dizzy.

So, one casualty has been my blogged haikus. 
Partly because we were down a computer (that was one of the Murphy's Law-type issues) and partly because I just could not make the time to make it happen.

BUT. The good news???
I still wrote a haiku each and every day in the notebook next to my bed and I'm going to post them all now.
And I have high, high hopes that this next week will go as planned, one haiku at a time.

Haiku 18
4/18/2012

Conjugating verbs
Thinning out the garden plot
What goes next to what?


Haiku 19
4/19/2012

Running in the dark
Each step is an act of faith
The trail trips me up


Haiku 20
4/20/2012

12-day old baby
downy head against my neck
fixes everything


Haiku 21
4/21/2012

Is this a cliche:
"a tulip like a girl's skirt"
even if it's true?


Haiku 22
4/22/2012

Most things are better
in a boat, on the water
Spider thinks so, too


Haiku 23
4/23/2012

Cat in the garden
The wind shakes the old oak clean
Cat in the catkins


Haiku 24
4/24/2012

Wind chimes, crisp blue sky -- 
Is there a wrong side of bed?
The squirrel still complains.

Oh, yes. Get your fix of Baby. Fixes everything, indeed.

What goes next to what is a question I'm always asking myself when writing poetry. In gardening, I'm not that advanced. :)
