The Haiku Meme

So, I’m starting a meme. Never done it before, just felt like the time.

Here’s the deal. You write a haiku to describe your IF/latest cycle/you name it. It can be deep and emotional, or snarky and bitchy, or just downright funny.

A haiku is a 17 syllable poem in three lines: the first and third lines have five syllables each, the second line has seven.

Mucus shows up too late,
Ovulation is moot now,
My ovaries suck.

or

Infertility
means losing a loved one you
never got to know.

or

If I could save one
person in a shipwreck, it
wouldn’t be my doc.

or

Clomid, I hate you.
You turn me into Satan,
but yield no babies.

or

Stupid OPK!
“User! Your ovulation is
imminent!” my ass.

It’s fun. Have a go!

I tag ProjGen, Mel @ Stirrup Queens and the fabulous Rachel Inbar!

But you don’t have to wait to be tagged or have a blog! Post your gems in the comments. Maybe Mel will be kind enough to do a roundup of the best on Friday?
