Twelve steps for Haiku?

Snow, lovely white snow
What happened here? We have a
Sheet of ice instead.

No school, Highland Park.
No playgroup. No snow playing.
Jammies all day here.

Yawn, stretch. Time to nap?
No, Mom. I'm bored. Please can we
Play outside in snow?

Art project for us?
Maybe a letter box for
day late Valentines.

Markers, natch, stickers
too, craft paper, scissors, and
A shoebox to glue.

I was trying not
to be the first poster here
Addiction's too strong.

twelve steps not enough
seventeen more suitable
one per syllable

I resist the urge
to comment on other blogs
in Haiku verses

felt at the dinner table
with non-theatre types
