I just have to write and share another Haiku. This is my second and last post about Haiku, I hope.
You can read part 1 of Hopelessly Haiku here.

Haikus are actually a great tool to convey one’s emotions and thought process. Obviously, one has to use well chosen words, because there is a limit to the number of lines and syllables. I think I am actually getting good at it, I was able to write this Haiku in just a few minutes. I still have some Nature elements incorporated to it, as traditional Japanese Haikus do, and I will probably write Haikus the same way in the future. For even better Haikus, check out my friend Miss Flo’s blog, Haiku-po!
So this is my second Haiku:
You are vacuous.
A flower pot full of weeds.
No roses to bloom.
My first Haiku and this one are actually connected. Obviously, there is a difference. Can you tell which one has a hint of sadness, and which one has a wisp of spite? Haikus are open to many interpretations because of their simplicity, and I will leave you all to your own interpretations. How do you think I feel writing this Haiku?
I have so many projects to finish, but I will try to blog as much as I can, as a great friend suggested. I have read also that I need to be prolific, if I want to be known as a blogger, or as a writer. About my projects, I will post more information about them when they are actually near completion. I don’t really want to announce things prematurely.
On a different note, I am actually glad that I am able to express my personality more so with my recent posts. With the earlier entries, which were mostly reviews, I try to stick to the facts. I wasn’t able to include a snarky statement or two, which I how would normally talk in real life.
My son still has so many toys that I will be reviewing in the future, so make sure to stay tuned! If you would like me to review a certain product, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
Currently, I am trying to finish this book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.
It’s about decluttering, which would be beneficial to everyone, me included. I haven’t read it all, but I have already learned so much. One of the advices that Marie Kondo states early on, is that we should surround ourselves with only those that we love, whether material things or people. Everything or everyone else, we can just let go, really.
I would like to hear from you. Feel free to comment below.
