Haiku Bye Fay

Haiku Friday

It's been a whole week
We missed Fay by a few hours
Ahhh, back in New York

The view from our room
preparing for a wedding
too bad we missed it

The beach was great fun
First time on a plane for Fa
She rocks the flying

I still need the meds
But she took care of her mom
So, that's how it felt

Friggin' Fay almost
ruined our whole vacation
poor natives all there

I ran like a child
away from Fay's destruction
some not so lucky

But we're home sweet home
and I need a vacation
from my vacation

The Laundry is nuts
more than ever in my life!
Whose clothes came home here?

Go here or here for Mr.Linky (these 'kuers rock) add your own piece of artful writing.

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky at one of the above chickie's blogs with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your generic blog URL). We will delete your link if it doesn’t go to a haiku. If you need help with this, contact Christina.

  1. nothing like a near miss with a storm like that to make you feel blessed!!

    laundry - what a thankless chore! but i do love having clean clothes!!

  2. yikes! close call there.

    glad you are all safe and sound.

  3. Did I read that right? You missed the wedding. So sad. Boooo to Fay. Wait I re-read -- wasn't your wedding or one for your child -- glad. Still, boo to Fay for ruining your vacation. Glad you are home safe and sound. Yuck to Laundry. Have a good weekend ---

  4. I'm glad you are back, and I'm very glad that Fay didn't get you!:)

  5. We've been trying to say bye to Fay this while week - she ain't takin' the hint!

  6. Glad you missed the storm.
    Sorry, you missed the wedding too. Bummer.
    But it made for a great haiku, right :-)

  7. Yikes, glad you are safe. Sounds like you definitely need a vacation from the vacation.

  8. You're a poet but you know it

  9. awww too bad about the storm!!! Am glad you arrived home safe and sound!! YAY for good traveling! PooPoo for laundry!

  10. Not sure what happened to my comment? Anyway, I am glad that you are safe, and I totally agree that a vacation away from the vacation would only be fair.

  11. Whew! Glad you dodged the storm. SO sorry about the laundry. I think that is the very bane of my existence! Good luck against the monster. :)

  12. Thanks for sending Fay my way. I'm in Mississippi.

  13. I hope those folks got married before Fay showed up! Glad you had a good time on your vacation :)


  14. Glad Fay waited and didn't ruin the WHOLE vacation. We're headed to the beach mid-September. Hopefully nobody will make landfall that week.
    Welcome back! Good luck with the laundry. We're still washing fleas out of everything.

  15. Glad to hear you made it home safely. Just when you thought Fay was great fun....Gustav is right behind her. GOOD TIMES!

  16. Wow, I totally don't envy you. Amazing pics though!

  17. Sounds like y'all had a great time. Glad you're home safe and sound.

  18. Fay is much to sweet to be a hurricane.
    They should have called her Fray.
