Haiku Buckaroo

Soon thirty will come.
Twenty left me so long ago.
How I miss it so.

I thought of another to add.
Big dog in my lap
Wanting to be, so so near
Biting on my ear

I'm taking a stab at enriching my writing technique. Honestly I just thought it would be fun to do something different for a change.
For more haikus visit My Mommy's Place
Check out the contest she's having and win some nifty Haiku Buckaroo prizes.

A haiku has 17 syllables - five in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. Like this. And this.

To enter the contest:

Write a haiku and post it on your blog. Be sure to mention this contest and link back to this entry in your post.
Then, e-mail the permalink or leave it in a comment.
If you don’t have a blog, don’t fret. You can enter by submitting your haiku in a comment.
Be sure to provide an e-mail address so I may contact you if you win.
You may enter more than once.
I will post links to each haiku entry in the order I receive them.
The contest winner (a.k.a. The Haiku Buckaroo) will receive a Magnetic Poetry Haiku Kit, a Haiku Buckaroo Mug and a super-cool button for their blog (in their choice of white or black).

I love this haiku! I can relate. I just turned 31. There's something about turning 30. It's a milestone. It marked the day I started to use eye firming cream because Ack! Crow's Feet! I didn't notice them until I was thirty. Of course, I don't think I was looking for them before that.

Thanks for entering the contest!

Time marches on, right?
