haiku, do you?

Yesterday afternoon I was full of good cheer because the weather was lovely, the park was absolutely beautiful, and my infant neighbours were telling me interminable but amusing stories about various strange animals and birds they had known. It didn't get totally dark until well after ten, and there was a lovely sunset. Today, however, I have woken up to find grey skies, rain-soaked pavements, and Ju Ju growling for food despite having just been given her breakfast. Inspired by majea, I think we need more "how are you?" haikus. So, tell me about your day in haiku form! The syllable rate is 5, 7, 5. As for me...

Grey skies are growling
Ju Ju climbs on the table
When will summer come?

What about you?

How did you find out?
Through weather or through haiku?
Either is quite great

Weather was the means:
"not enough blue sky to make
a sailor's jockstrap"

Filthy minded gran!
My great-aunts always said "make
A sailor's trousers"

Using "Bwahaha
haha" is cheating haiku
I am sulking now

But it is correct!
I used four "ha"s exactly!
Kate, please do not sulk!

I just used it once!
But perhaps I bent the rules
I bow head in shame

I bestow a pat
On your shamefully bowed head
I'm gracious like that

Thank you! And good news:
Irish sky now shows some blue
Should make sailor's pants
