Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”

Click here for info and background on this weekly event!
The basics:
Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively (a great way to use your fingers!)

This week’s theme is: Attention

Don't have attention

They say I must pay, I can't

I have none to give.


They think I don't try,

My brain is a pin ball in

an arcade machine.

Hard to talk to me,

Can't talk as fast as I think

Friends learn to adjust.

My mom says "Focus!"

Granddad says "Ants in her pants!"

"Sit! Pay Attention!"


Now is not so bad.

I can juggle lots at work.

Rarely drop a ball.

Must pay attention?

I've gotten along just fine.

Only life I know.



  1. "Ants in her pants!" I haven't heard that in years LOL Too funny and all well done ya Pin Ball LOL

  2. Like the attitude of the only life you've known. Friends and I always debate which if knowing or not knowing would be preferable. Don't think there is an answer to that quandry.

    I talk very fast and friends are always telling me they can't understand me. I think, for me, it's just a matter of excitement combined with fear I won't get the opportunity to express myself or I'll forget what I said.

    Glad they have adjusted. Loved playing pinball. Sister and I would entertain ourselves for hours on end. Have a fabulous week.

  3. ".. My brain is a pin ball in
    an arcade machine."

    Vivid imagery here ...

  4. I like the narrative in your haiku poem :O)

  5. LOVE the extremely apt description of the pinball machine. That's it, exactly. Well done!!
