Haiku #4

I apologize to all of you about the gap in postings, but grading papers has really taken up my time this week... I am ecstatic to have finished up my two online classes, though, so now I only have the mad rush of the face-to-face classes to handle.

The last haiku seems to have stumped everyone, though, which means I was more cryptic than I'd intended. It was a swing, and if the rider looked up, she'd see the metal bars of it, but would be "distracted" by the sky.

Anyhow, I still have 16 papers to grade this morning, and it's my son's birthday, so I really need to get them done as soon as possible. Here's the next haiku:

Fluff-stuffed, soft as shade
Resting, waiting for one's head
Whispering welcome

You know what to do now. What do you think it is? Respond with your answers, and I'll let you know who guessed it in the next post.


  1. A pillow? Seems so, as personally those things are very welcoming, and beckons me all day.

  2. I'm with the others. Pillow.

  3. I'll go another way, and say "clouds" (head in the clouds?)
