Haiku Friday

Here's my first edition of Haiku Friday. Have to be honest here, I had no idea what a Haiku was til a few weeks ago. I'm sure I learned about it in school, but that was at least a hundred years ago. Not perfect, but not bad for a first try.

Another weekend.
Hoping the weather is good.
Kids coming over.

Roof needs to be stripped.
Preparing for new roofing.
Please God please no rain!

Two weeks good weather
Now it’s looking like two bad
Please God please no rain.

Fun for Mom and girls
Gardening, romping in sun,
Fetching drinks and food.

Men up on rooftop
Tearing off old dead shingles
Muscles working out.

Please God please no rain.
Cars need to be in garage
Dumpster needs to go.

We need to see sun
Front porch nearing completion
Please God please no rain.

Thanks for visiting my Haiku last Friday. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to return the visit. Life’s busy, but I’m not complaining. It’s all good. Loved your 1st Haiku and hope you decide to participate regularly. You seen to be a ‘natural’ … and I hope it didn’t …(and doesn’t)… rain and the work gets finished ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
