citybirds chirp: hazel & mare

 happy friday and hope you are all ready for another citybirds chirp. today i have katie from hazel & mare, one of my new favorite blogs. her blog is refreshing, engaging and just down right fun! every morning i get excited to see what new adventure her blog will take me on, i just LOVE her imagination. brilliant really! enjoy!

 Hi everybody! My name is Katie and I write a wee little blog called  Hazel & Mare. On my blog, I write little daily haikus about random things. I also feature a cute craft or homemade product from Etsy that is related to the haiku. I enjoy haikus because they’re short and sweet, and it’s fun to shmoosh a whole idea into only 17 syllables. One day, I hope to write crazy, silly poems like Shel Silverstein that make people smile!

Here are some of my favorite haikus. I hope you enjoy them!

“On Why You Should Probably Sign Your Kid Up for Boy Scouts”

"Always be prepared"
He'll help you live in the woods
When zombies attack
 Best Zombie Ever! Crocheted Zombie Amigurumi by Milky Robot.

“On My Preference in the Daily Breakfast Debate: Pancakes v. Waffles”

Waffles all the way
The secret to yumminess
Lies in the crannies

 The crannies provide traction so that toppings will not roll off the side, like those flat, lazy pancakes. Maple-scented waffle soap by AubreyEApothecary.

 “On How to be Prepared in Case One of Your Friends Discovers How to Time Travel”

You should learn latin
A time machine accident
Could land you in Rome

That way you will know how to order food in ancient restaurants. Time travelin’ penguin illustration by collageorama.
