Cleaning

A Haiku or Two, on Fresh Starts

Haiku52:
Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats.

Shop the Story

Hairs cut. Counters cleaned.
Bed made. Laundry done. Now I
wait for the next mess.

If ironed sheets and
crisp linens a fresh start make,
I'm behind the curve. 

Are you inspired to write a poem about starting anew? The comments below are a safe space to express yourself.

I'd like to see a
quarterly cleaning regime
suggested. Thank you.

With windows open
Year round there is no such thing
Here as spring cleaning.

Someone off topic, but perhaps not . . .
Spotted on a bumper sticker near College Avenue in the Rockridge district of Oakland:

Haikus confuse me
Too often they don't make sense
I want a cookie.

Kitchen 'spring' cleaning:
Was major mess. Done early.
I am enjoying.
