Sensational Haiku Wednesday-"Happiness"

I have written two haiku for today's Sensational Haiku Wednesday on YouKnowThatBlog. I know, what an overachiever hahaha!

My first haiku:

Both children napping
time enough to sneak off and read
just a few pages

My second haiku, and the eye candy that inspires it:

her face lighting up
smiling up at me

Two completely different things that make me happy on a regular basis!
I don't like the double use of "up" in my second one, but it works for the form.

Thanks for reading ;)

Join the fun!


  1. Nice Haikus, Rachael! I love them but have not figured out yet how to write them. I know the rules, but it never comes out the way I want it to.

    I love both of them...and love the inspiration behind the second one.

  2. Both are great! I can see why she inspires you. Lovely.

  3. I love the sneaking off to read ... and the eye candy is precious!! Thanks for sharing. Dig In and Dig Out

  4. Reading and precious little ones -- recipe for happiness!!

  5. Not 5-7-5 for our meme, but very nice just the same. Hope to see you again next week with 5-7-5 haiku!

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Jenn-I totally cannot believe I miscounted, like a hundred times--I just recounted the first one, and left a comment saying I'm glad the first one fit the 5-7-5, then after I posted the comment recounted one last time and realized I was one over on that one!!! Sorry!!
