You know, there are some things that I think people just can’t fake. Two of those things are wit and humor, and my friend Peyton Price, author of the smart, funny book Suburban Haiku: Poetic Dispatches from Behind the Picket Fence, proves it in just over 140 pages.
Her clever observations from suburbia are laugh out loud funny, clever, and at times even unexpected. I read the book over a week or so while doing one of the most suburban things there is – wearing my yoga pants, drinking my afternoon lattes while sitting in my SUV in a carpool line waiting for my kids to get out of school.
The book is perfect for the busy Mom who has trouble sitting down and finding time for herself to do something as selfish as reading a book – hell, I’m lucky if I can sneak a bathroom break alone. With Suburban Haiku you can pick it up and put it down a hundred times and still find enjoyment in stealing a quick read.
As I mentioned her witty writings made me chuckle often, sometimes without warning, and delightfully startled other suburbanites who happened to be within earshot. It would be impossible for me not to relate to so many of the haikus in this book, which also are not as easy to write as one might think. I’ve only done it once myself…I much prefer reading Peyton’s poetry which she seems to do with such ease. Here’s a few I loved from the book:
