May Haiku

So much for good intentions! At the beginning of this year I intended to post a Haiku for each month, but that flew out of the window when my mother-in-law fell and broke her wrist and pelvis, and then the window slammed shut when we got the puppy and I realised JUST HOW MUCH HARD WORK A PUPPY IS!

She's now nearly 4 months old and is much better at laying patiently while I fiddle around on the laptop, and the MiL has had to accept that she's almost completely recovered and can't have me on call all the time, so I am thinking it's time to put the fingers on the keyboard, or pen to paper, again.

How did that happen?
Time flies, they say, and it's true -
of this year, at least!

Spring sprung secretly.
May - I blinked once and missed you.
June - please knock loudly!

Thanks for visiting!

What do you prefer - fingers on keyboard or pen on paper - and why?

Love the Haiku, especially the second one. And I so agree with you about puppies! Mine likes to steal my red pen and hide with it :-(

Excellent Haiku. It is just crazy how fast time is passing me by. Glad to hear the pup is trained and the MiL is on the mend.

Great haiku, especially that second one.

You're right about puppies, but cats are no easier. Our oh-so-helpful cats think it's their imperative to be smack dab in the middle of whatever we're doing. At the moment, one has positioned herself between me and the monitor, while the other is napping on the printer beside me.

Keyboard or pen and paper? Yes. I prefer to start with a pen and notebook, and then do revisions after typing it into the computer.

Terrific haiku, and the second one is also my favorite! You have such a cute, and well-trained puppy!

Brilliant haikus. And such a cute puppy. I prefer pen to paper but work so much faster with a keyboard. And I must update my blog today too...

Gorgeous pup but I imagine a great distraction!
I write all fiction and non-fiction on a keyboard because hand writing is so slow. However it does help that I can touch type, so thoughts go straight through the fingers and onto the screen. But then I have to hand write poetry into notebooks. Perhaps there are different neural pathways firing for writing different genres - maybe an area to research...
