Cleaning is a waste

It's Sensational Haiku Wednesday again! This week's prompt is fleeting. And PAD #9 is (blank) or (blank).

Cleaning is a Waste

My day is so short
I have a big choice to make
Vacuum or laundry

But seriously,

Life is a Series of Choices

My life has flown by
How did I get to this point?
Choosing this or that

Future up to me
Must make the most of what's left
Whether smile or frown

LOL - oh the curse of house work. I dread it and hate it.

Great job on your haiku's today!

Cleaning is a waste! The world needs more maids. And plastic dishes.

Always best to smile. Enjoyed those.

Isis Rushdan said...

I can always think of something better to do with my time than clean, but I like a clean house. I really need to get a maid :). Loved your haiku.

J. A. Bennett said...

Ugh, don't remind me that there are pile of dishes in my sink at this very moment.

I mentioned you on my blog today, stop by when you get a chance :)

David P. King said...

Wait a second. I wasn't already following you? Well. That's fixed now. :)

I do enjoy a good haiku. These are awesome!

I should totally look into that NanoREVmo. That's just what I'm doing right now.

Cleaning is a waist. Why can't it be like The Jetsons. I want a robot that does everything for me, and loves the family too.

Great haiku.

I agree with one of your members who said you should have a poem book published by now. Your creative mind is a blessing.

Loved all of your poetry today! And I know how the cleaning feels - it's always the last thing I want to do, but it always needs to get done.

Dana said...

Very nice! I love haiku :)

Joanne said...

These are great ... I hope you choose to smile when you make the cleaning choice :)

I clicked over from JA Bennet's blog to say Hello ...

MISH said...

Well crafted poetry TTT !!
You always write such interesting haikus.

There's an acknowledgement for you on today's post. Swing by when you have a chance.

M Pax said...

Yes, more maids! My dream is to make enough at writing to hire a cleaning service.

Amy said...

Love your Haiku! Cleaning is definitely a waste, when their is so many other things to do! :)

Awesome haiku. I have my son vacuum with me as it's fun for him.

Argh...I agree with it.

Hi! I saw your award on A Book, A Girl... and needed to stop by. Glad I did! Love the Haikus... laundry or vacuum? Such a dilemma!

Peggy Eddleman said...

I love this! Haikus should, in general, be a LOT more like these. LOVED THEM.

LynNerdKelley said...

Fun haikus. Now I feel more guilty for not getting my cleaning done today, even though it's a waste!

Nanka said...

I always find myself in this dilemma!! And I thought it was a Gemini trait!! :) Safest way out is to keep smiling!! :)

Jenn @ Youknow...that Blog? said...

Yep, I hear you - and sometimes I choose "none of the above", and play Candyland with my Wee One instead. The vacuum will still be there later, but childhood is fleeting!

Nicely done!
