Exuberance – Haiku


Bubbling over with

Sudden sparkles of frothy

Effervescent joy!

18 March, 2012

(Entirely instigated by misplaced exuberance of young girls of my class who indulged in a bit of graffiti in school, and were apprehended, red-handed :P. They wrote “Exuberantz” supposedly a “gang” name. Horrors! Yes, I did my thingy of ogre-ishness, and then wondered: How I love that word!
Hence. Because. And So. 😛 🙂 😀 😆 )

More Haiku, here.

    • Soma, lol… the graffiti girls, nice name! And no, it was not the first time, though the graffiti part was a first I believe 😀 Thanks for the vote of adorableness… which sure as heck, they will hoot away, but no matter, you’re saying it, so it is 😀

  3. Love the word 🙂 and double-love the Haiku 😀

    curiosity speaks: so, what happened after apprehending them red-handed? 😀


    • oh, and i like the word effervescence also 😀


      • 😀 Coincidentally I was on your blog just now! Thanks for liking this and, as always, lending your special touch in the comments 🙂 What happened after? I’ve already mentioned that magically I became an ogre, who did ogreish things and scared the daylights out of them. They’re never going to look at a wall again in the same way they did 😛 😛 Your “Walls” verse has one more experience to notch up there 🙂
        And then with dire warnings of doomsday, nammal compliments aaki 😀
        Thanks David, you always lift one’s spirits with your spirited words, their effervescence and the exuberance 🙂


        • ellaam paranju compliments aaki, elle 😀

          ha ha… i like the relation to the “Walls” verse – i didnt make the connection till i read that sentence again 😀 (hushhhh, dont tell anyone!!)…. and happy ogre-ing when you do it 😉

          and i just saw the coincidence when a mail popped up… this time i am going back on your blog, reading old entries.. good fun 🙂


  4. Now, I know why your girls love you so much…Lovely words, Usha!


  5. Love that word… the very word is exuberant.

    And love your two pink nosed cats in the header sunning and grooming themselves!! They look like Sher Khan’s cousins. 🙂


    • IHM, thank you 🙂 🙂 *exuberantly* 😀

      Those pink nosed cats are my younger brothers. The most wonderful of cats I have yet to meet (literally). He’s got this collection of pictures and videos of them, and I took a few of those 🙂 They do look like Sher Khan, don’t they?


  6. Oh you are a teacher! nice! me too. what do you teach?


    • Reema, glad to have another teacher here 🙂 I teach English, so the others believe 😀 I’m not too sure 😀 :D! Love the language to death though 🙂
      Thank you for visiting here 🙂


  7. Interesting haiku.
    But what intrigued me more here is the ogreishness. 😀 I was trying to visualize the scene, because yesterday I was really an ogress in the class.
    Glad to see you back, Usha! I missed you a lot.


    • Bindu 🙂 Thank you!
      Lol @the ogreishness that you can visualize, empathize with and fully understand! 😀 And thank you for missing me 🙂 🙂 For that matter, I too missed me!!! 😀 Glad to be here too!


  8. Indeed a lovely name! It just had to inspire. Since you were the one to come across it, it changed into this lovely Haiku. If some people I know, for instance, had come across it, I don’t know what else it could have inspired. 😀


    • Hahaha! Deboshree, this is one word that can inspire a lot of things… in fact the picture is one of bubbles rising in a glass of champagne 😀 You get it? Lol!
      Thank you for the lovely words too, for the write 🙂


Thank you for reading. Do stop a while and write in too... :)
