In a straw basket

Wearing a disguise

Here the blessing lies

I like writing haikus. Simple. Pretty. Cheat way to have more writing. I wasn't kidding about that last one. This is an over-due tribute to Thanksgiving. Hence the basket allusion. So.. I've got New Years, Two Birthday Gifts, and an upcoming Valentine's day thing to worry about. I'll probably do some humorous poem about that day. :3

This was more so for my friends because they are my blessings in disguise.

Do you know why the basket is made out of straws? :P

Awww thank you Summer!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much! So glad you think of me as such an important person to you. :) I love you! (can't believe I've been saying this so much these days. But you guys are rubbing off on me.) :P
Hmmm basket of straws. Is it because there are so many that all bind themselves together to make a whole? (yea i'm probably over-exaggerating but that's my best guess.)
Thanks again Summer!!

*hugs Summer, Summer gasps for air*
Awww thanks! :) It's so sweet of you!!! *starts to sob*

Baskets are made of straws because women, who made the baskets, weren't allowed- and couldn't carve wood. And when they were "allowed?" Old habits die hard.

WOW LOL that sounded so...unpoeticized!!! All the other answers were so pretty and sweet... XD That's like my very first down-to-earth answer -_-

Thanks Summer!

Aww, thanks Summer. ^-^ I like this haiku a lot, and you're right, they are very simple and pretty. :) Great job!

Umm... I was going to say something along the lines of Sumayya's response, but she beat me to the punch. ;) If that's not the correct answer, then I have absolutely no idea why the basket is made out of straw. :P

Haha, I like your theory Breezy. Very funny. :0)

this is so sweet
*hugz* thanks for considering me as a friend!

*raises hand and waves it wildly*
oh! oh! oh!
i know this answer
baskets are made of straw because during spring they're easy to make and if farmers have a hard bare winter then all they have to do is feed their animals the baskets (which are hay since they are dried out)
:P
my grandmother told me about it once
