Sheer Poetry

Stripes, gray and white stripes, 
I love you so much,
 I wrote
this haiku for you.

That haiku was lame, 
I will try again. oh crap.
out of syllables.




Uh-oh, I smell another impromptu haiku contest!
Best haiku left in the comments will be chosen by a panel of judges (my mom)
and will receive something random in the mail from me!

    sitting in a damp garage.
    Now you are stripey.

    glistening through the soft clouds
    stripes make me happy

  7. Drank too much rum drink.
    I’m paying for it today
    cause stripes made me sick.

  8. Rippled, white and gray
    no longer sullen choc’late
    Modern is the word!

  9. An ugly old thing,
    turned beautiful by only
    loving hands and paint.

    No! You can’t make me conform.

    Then me and the chair got stripes
    Now we’re the shiz-nit!

  17. Are you serious?
    I totally want something!
    Please send it to me!

    I’d write a haiku,
    but my four kids are screaming.
    You know how it is.

  18. This sounds better if you imagine a gong sound after the second line…

    A dresser speaks of
    white ripples in grey water
    put away your laundry

  19. Wide Grey Chevron Stripes,
    And Integrated Handles.
    An MCM Dream.

    Beautiful dresser! I love the MCM lines of it and the paint job is perfect.

  27. Stripes brought first love
    Then with horror,
    “Does this make me look fat?”

  30. I really love this dresser and winning things is fun!

    I am so confused
    Are they stripes or big chevrons?
    It makes my head hurt

  31. Dressing up dark wood
    Grey and white stripes make it flash
    Dresser’s Gone Wild!

  32. Thought they were straight
    then I looked harder
    they were starting to wave.

  33. Better After-help!
    Mother in law in my home.
    Am losing my mind.

  34. I googled Haiku
    Now I am educated
    I can’t stop doing it

    So all the day long
    I sit and wait for new posts
    Thinking of Haikus

    Now Easter is here
    I wish for pastel redo’s
    Maybe you’ll grant it.

    Kill me now.

  35. It’s so late at night
    Reading Better After Blog
    Should be sleeping now

    I Love this blog!

  36. You used to be dull
    Now, you’re totally awesome!
    Love you, grey/white thing

  37. Optic Illusion
    Are you really there or not?
    Maybe the floor slants.

  38. Chevrons are awesome
    Even when they are subtle
    They make me happy

    You know something else?
    Better After makes me cry
    With big tears of joy

    Each morning I wake
    Make a giant cup of joe
    And check the transformations

    Then I get inspired
    And out come the paint supplies
    Hubby gets nervous

    He likes when I’m done
    And admits it is awesome
    I win. Yes. I win.

    LOL.
