Everyday of my life

First attempt on Haiku. Written for Weekly Writing Challenge: Haiku Catchoo


In the words of Ray Bradbury, “Just write every day of your life…”. Your mission is to write five haikus — one for each of the five days leading up to this Friday.

waking up like a
snail, slowly crawling, lazy
mind, a lazy day

feeling little good,
like a tortoise, moving
relatively faster

two days to Friday
something to cheer me up, like
a Sloth, walking fast

come Thursday, hopping
like a frog, jumping hyper
all around my world

holiday begins
from mid Firday, running home
Sweet home, like Emu

  1. Yay. Dhriit. I love the animal imagery. I sitting in the parking lot at Turner Field waiting for start of my race. It’s COLD. 22 degrees. I might be like the sloth. I wish I had her coat. Have a great holiday.

  2. I love what you did with this, Dhriti–fun progression from Monday through Friday (pretty aptly describes just about any week for me 🙂 ). Nicely done!
