The exercise:

Write two haiku about something: fuzzy.

If you're wondering where the hell I've been, I'd suggest scrolling down a little bit.


No sleep for ages,
my vision's getting fuzzy.
Time to stop driving.

A treat for a ride
in a noisy ambulance:
a cuddly new friend.

Max is gaining a much larger collection of teddy bears due to ambulance rides than I'd prefer.

Are the ambulance bears a subspecies of Care Bears, by any chance? I'm thinking... Emergency-care bear, intensive-care bear etc. :)
I hope they've all got names!

I like your second haiku better today because I know the story behind it, and it's slightly less threatening than the first :)

Fuzzy logic is
how your washing machine thinks.
Plotting against you.


Lots of bumblebees?
I asked for something fuzzy!
Now duck and cover....

got to write got to write
but cant think of anything to write
my brain is all fuzzy tonight


fuzzy is the wind
hot is the sun
cool is the icecream

Just read all about Max's ambulance rides -- that's scary! Hope it doesn't happen again. Could it be something he ate upsetting his tummy?

I kind of cheated on the last haiku, but I've met my share of bears from the ER and cats from the ambulance (that's what we have here for kids) and couldn't resist.
Fuzzy, fizzy, I'm
Muzzy, mizzy, wizzy with
Lack of sleep tonight.

Hospital bears and
Ambulance cats are pec-
uliarly fuzzy.

Greg - no, but that's a fine idea!

Hah, your first one gives me just a touch of the creeps. I like it :)

Abhi M - I quite like the rhythm of your first poem, even if it doesn't quite fit the haiku form of 5 syllables - 7 syllables - 5 syllables.

Oh, and welcome to the blog! I hope you find it useful :)

Morganna - thanks for your kind thoughts. We're beginning to suspect it's a reaction to something his mom is eating that's coming through in the breast milk. We'll see if we can figure out exactly what the problem is and then eliminate it.

Ugh, I can so relate to your first one. That could be my theme song right now.

In fact if I read it a few more times it probably will become just that :P
