I dared Norma to try a week of haiku with me. Haiku are snapshots, five syllables on the first line, seven on the second, and five on the last line. They're easier than sonnets, where you have a rhythm pattern as well as a rhyme pattern to follow. Haiku I can do, sonnets defeat me. My second journal keeping class assignment is a series of letters, but they're shaping up to be paper journal content, not public weblog, so you get the haiku instead.
First dental visit
in six years. Fear confronted,
in two hours time.
For the record, I'm fine, no work required other than a moderately brutal cleaning.
