When All Else Fails, HAIKU!

It's a sunny day
But I'm all gray and cloudy
and soon, tears may fall
-
No, I'm just kidding
I'm actally quite cheerful
Some say - "Bi-polar"
-
My mind is calm now
Writing haiku is pleasant
Except when it's not
-
Why do I do it?
I should be writing stories!
But I'm too lazy
-
No, that's not the word
Not lazy, just idea-less
I must try harder
-
I will try harder
But...that sounds like lots of work
And I'm so lazy
-
Yes, really lazy
You've no idea how lazy
Lazy like a fox!
-
Fooled you, didn't I?
You think I won't write one thing
But you're mistaken
-
My brain is stirring
I'm getting an idea now
And another one
-
But first, I must rest
Getting ideas is hard work
and I'm exhausted

i couldn't write a haiku if my life depended on it... But I certainly liked this, Ms. Z...

Oops, I am a big liar
Who writes bad haiku

Madam Z,

Lazy haiku it's
not, when one is suffering
lack of plot

Your haiku entertained the hell out of me. I thought about leaving the comment, "I Love you!" But then I thought that might sound weird. ;-)

Your haiku are awesome and silly. I'm glad you wrote this! <3
