Friday Haiku without Haiku Widget

I do not know if
I'll ever do this again
Haiku on Friday

Poetic license
once explored, can only lead
to poor sentences

Besides, I find that
people look at me funny
as I count fingers

And too many times
I lose count and do it wrong
then I look stupid

And I need no help
looking stupid. I can do
it just fine in prose.

Oh you are clever. I couldn't put a haiku together for love nor money.

ROFL!!!!! Oh Lou, I feel the same way :) I find myself counting on my fingers reading other people's haiku's! I'm scared to see how long it would take me to do one of my own... I haven't participated in Friday haiku's, yet. Have a great weekend!!!!

I'm notsure if you did this "right" -- I'm too tired to count on my fingers -- but I like your poem!

You're great at it, and it's fun, isn't it!?
