The Challenge: Write a haiku about the things you are thankful for and put it somewhere to serve as a reminder.
Writing a haiku was tricky because I really had to choose the words very carefully. I can honestly say that each of the words I picked were “gold” to me. Only having 17 syllables to work with was frustrating, but in the end I think it forced me to pick out the things in my life that I really am most thankful for.
So, without further ado, my haiku….(since I didn’t rhyme in the actual haiku, I thought it was a nice touch to rhyme here)…
God’s peace, grace, joy, truth
Jason, family, friends, health
Childlike faith, hope, love.
I had so much fun with this, I wrote two haiku. I submit the first to the “delight in the little things” category:
ipod for my songs
rainy days for reading books
and stuffed crust pizza
…and this one for the “let’s be serious for a second” category:
kim my lovely wife
a smile that cheers me right up
she likes noodles too
So, who was most creative with today’s challenge? Who went beyond the comfort zone and put the biggest hammer on Adultitis? Who did a better job of capturing the spirit of childhood, Kim or Jason? Cast Your Vote!
