What is a lifeku?

A lifeku is a haiku about daily life. For those who are unfamiliar with haiku, it is a form of Japanese poetry usually about nature, "profound," and formatted in 3 lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Feel free to check out some famous haikus if you still don't get it.

Today's lifeku is yet another facet of the previously mentioned "Human Cube" and resulting air quality:

You know, when I was younger I used to think coolwater smelled so good. That and white musk from the body shop, and of course vanilla fields.

Daughter said...

I remember a time when Drakar Noir was synonymous with "sexy." [shudder]

1. Neither Drakar or Coolwater were ever sexy. How do I know this? Because I never wore either. Very Sexy (Victoria's Secret), Polo Black, and Versace all sexy cologne's, for those of you looking for Christmas gifts for the boyfriend.

Maureen said...

Yeah, I don't see a number 2 Jerry.

this needs to be on a t shirt, or at the very least embroidered onto a pillow.

Daughter said...

I REALLY like the pillow idea... I imagine it not unlike a "Home Sweet Home" needle point grandma cushion.
