Guestpost: Hazel And Mare

Hi everybody! My name is Katie and I write a little blog called Hazel & Mare. I am so excited to guest post for Nikki because she is one of my favorite bloggers ever, and she is cute as a button! Nikki darling, I hope you are having many fun adventures in America right now!

On my blog, I write little daily haikus about random things. I also feature a cute craft or homemade product from Etsy that is related to the haiku. I enjoy haikus because they’re short and sweet, and it’s fun to shmoosh a whole idea into only 17 syllables. One day, I hope to write crazy, silly poems like Shel Silverstein that make people smile!

Here are some of my favorite haikus. I hope you enjoy them!


“On What I Would Imagine Would Be An Annoying Thing About Parties in Paris, Not That I Have Ever Been To Any Parisian Parties”

There’s always that guy
Who brings an accordion 
And thinks he can play

Kind of like American guys and their ukeleles. Cute illustration of a fox who can actually play the accordion by Yevgeniya. Check out her work on Etsy!


“On How I’d Probably Be a Rather Boring Superhero But at Least I Could Make My Own Cape”

If I had powers
I’d make year round fall weather
and knit super fast

Fighting crime with cozy sweaters for everyone and endless apple cider. Illustration by shirae. Check out her work on Etsy!


“On How My Poor Sense of Direction Has Brought Me to Some Bizarre Places, But That’s Where You Get the Best Stories”

I lost the compass
Let’s just head toward that skyline
I’m sure there are signs

How did people ever navigate by the stars? No wonder Columbus got lost. Adorable tote by fifiduvie. Check her out work on Etsy!


Thank you for reading my silly poems, everyone! And thanks to Nikki- we’ll see you soon!
