Crabby Haiku

This week's theme: Crabby

Crusty words snapped out
Cranky irascible frown
You’d feel crabby too.

Hard shell like a crustacean.
Words spoken tartly.

A sideways scuttle.
Beady eyes and hardened shell
I’m feeling crabby.

Goodness, this is my 101st blog post. Yay!


  1. Absolutely love language's litheness. Especially like those beady eyes. Here's looking at you!

    As Angela asked, yes I was crabby yesterday, all decked out in my layers and layers for the biting cold and then spent an hour in a warm supermarket feeling hot, itchy and tired!

    Oh yes Kitty and Kittie I hadn't thought of the star sign. ;O)
