doing nothing, right?

  1. Right.

    Not sure if reading your haiku will make it easier to write mine or more difficult.

    The pressure.

  2. I like that it’s a question and not just a statement.

    • That’s so funny, Jackie, because I was also toying with:

      Starting over is
      just one step more difficult
      than doing nothing at all

      which I actually thought sounded better, but opted for the question for reasons that are unclear. I still go back and forth.

  3. What a great haiku! VERY creative! I loved the pic which went along with it.

  4. Ooooh. This is a good one!

  5. Love your haiku! I also love that it’s a question. At first, I was kinda dreading writing a haiku because I don’t have much experience with them. But it was really fun. I’m really enjoying the theme days.

  6. I loved your haiku, too, and thought making it a question was brilliant, given the theme of your blog.

  7. I loved your Haiku. It applies to nearly everything in life.

  8. Kathy,
    Luv the pic adds spice. Good job.

    Great haiku, Kathy. The picture, the question– it really resonates with me.

  11. I don’t know how I missed your site during this month of blogathon. Better late than never.

    I really like haiku as a question! I agree, brilliant.

    • Thanks for visiting, Kristie. It’s hard to post daily and get to all of the blogs as much as you’d like. I know it was for me 🙂
