Haiku Friday

This haiku quartet was inspired by sundry poetry prompts linked below:

the state you’re in right before
landing a new job.


Haiku can uplift
all our holiday spirits.
Better yet — champagne.


Our poetry prompts—
an unhealthy obsession?
No! When’s the next one?


If I could create
a lovely haiku today,
I’d be ecstatic.


These haiku were written for these prompts: Occupy, Spirit, Ecstasy, Health and for The Purple Treehouse’s Haiku Prompt.
