I found an old note that contained a project to write a haiku every day. My project started in December 2018 and ended promptly in January 2019. The themes included work, baking, and difficulty finding nice fabric.
Meal prepped our lunch Ginger lemon tea downtown Cookies and treadmill
Dutch baby, no pouf Crispy, sweet, and delightful Topped with bananas
Force push to staging Bump. Install. Serve. Click. Approve. Pull request review.
Manometry shows Incomplete bolus clearance Rheumatic perhaps
New year and work day I open a new window And another tab
A mountain of clothes I ask, "does it bring me joy" An empty closet
A tiny mess here And there. I tidy up, but Another mess there
Parallelogram I tried to cut from fabric I cut a rhombus
Whip to peaks just so Fold until ribbons; Beware Wrinkly, flat, chewy
Garish and floral Whimsical and outdated I want good fabric
Oatmeal with french toast Sipping a piping hot chai Body so warm, flushed
Typing and trying Searching and guessing, please work. Jekyll was simpler
A filling once filled Is filled again; my smile crooked My teeth sensitive
Eight avocados will become guacamole thanks to bananas
My nail tears too soon impatient, slow connection fighting time and flesh
Two library cards Two tacos and a brisket One party; big smiles
Listen to a call and microwave soup for lunch as I pump breast milk
