Haiku-chee-coo Friday

It’s the little thingsHaiku Friday
That speak volumes to my soul
Flowers, [British] choc-late, card

There was something else
I can’t quite live without it
The old two died Dec.

Yes! There’s naught quite like
A new Sonicare toothbrush
To say, ‘I love you!’

I love me some Sonicare. When the two we had had for six years up and died a few months ago, I was lost without mine. We had a $25 off coupon for Costco and got a set of two for not much more than one elsewhere.

He bought me pretty flowers, a Terry’s chocolate orange, a beautiful, perfect card (words below) and then drove (the 45 miles) to ‘the big city’ and took me shopping. I love that man.

Sometimes you surprise me
by asking if I still love you,
still find you

And I wonder,
how could you
not know?

My love for you is so strong
that I think the whole world must see it.
The slightest thought of you
during the day
still excites me.

And when I see you,
all can think about
is that moment
when our lips will touch.

Time could never dim
my love for you,
because with every beat of my heart,
I only want you more.

The tears flowed as I read more and more, and right about there, my heart melted.

  3. Sweet!!

    P.S. I can’t live without my Sonicare toothbrush either! šŸ™‚

  4. awwwwwwwwww!!!!

    also electric toothbrushes = love.

  5. Aw! I am spreading the word about my Sonicare (Elite, if you please). It’s cheaper than whitening and far better for your teeth.

  6. Oh that is just too sweet! What a darling!
    glad you had a wonderful day. Great haiku!!
    I’ve never tried a sonicare toothbrush, this haiku made me curious though šŸ™‚

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog! Nice to ‘meet’ you, too!

    And I absolutely LOVE the sonicare. I got mine free from shespeaks.com an online market research company – but I’ll definitely replace it when this one bites the dust.

  8. Great Haiku, Siobhan. You and your husband are very lucky to have found each other. It is SO good to see such love between two people.

    Bryan is AWESOME! You are a lucky lady! And, my Sonicare is a prized thing! Need it.

  10. tara: we found them at Albertson’s, somewhere we usually don’t shop. They were on sale too. FabUlous.

    TGV, Maria, Melisa, jameil: I know…*sigh*

    ex-pat mum: I replaced mine with the Elite 9000-something edition too. Excited to use it once it bloody charges up.

    rachel: you totally need to try it. You won’t go back to a manual or electric toothbrush again.

    annie: you lucky, lucky devil. My pearly whites despise your resourcefulness.

    Lou: You and your missus are pretty darn awesome yourself.

    AFF: couldn’t agree more. On both counts.
