Haiku: Season Five Finale, My Way  
My apologies for not having gotten around to responding to most comments yet; I'm way, way behind, and real life is kicking my ass timewise. Not all in a bad way, mind you; just a really, really busy one. (If you've ever tried to work full time and some overtime while planning the remodeling of your house, cleaning in preparation for an onslaught of contractors, doing your estate planning, and embarking on a new venture to get additional income, you've got an idea!)

In apology and to tide you over for a while (ass-busting will continue at least until Sunday), I offer a little haiku that came to me in the car on my way home from work today. This would be my version of the ideal finale of season five, if it is, as Kripke has announced repeatedly, his intended end of Supernatural as a weekly series.  :)



This is how it ends.
Fate. War. Love. Faith. Redemption.
"Bitch."  "Jerk."  Rock song plays.


Roll those end credits, Kripke. We'll love you through our laughing tears.

And I do promise to get around to responding to all those lovely comments, as soon as I possibly can. Right now, though, it's 23:00, and I need to get up and start over at 05:00 tomorrow, which will come all too fast.

Current Mood: busy
Current Music: "Carry On My Wayward Son" by Kansas

Real life? I feel your pain!

I can relate and in some ways am grateful for a break from new episodes though when they start I'll be in the midst my own personal hell with mega training to conduct starting next week. Still, I will view the new episodes as a relief from the fray I'll be in. I'm with you. Thanks for the haiku that floored me in all it's simplicity and simply expressed emotion.

that's an excellent haiku!

I love your haiku -- it is the IDEAL ENDING.

I totally think Kripke will give us what we want. If I ever have any doubts I just go and listen to a lot of Kansas and Triumph and Led Zeppelin -- just like high school! :)

good luck on your new moneymaking venture!

That would indeed be a lovely way to end it.

*Fingers crossed that it does end like this, and Sam and Dean go driving Metallicar off, ready to hunt another day*

This is wonderful!

I love how the best of Sam and Dean's relationship is expressed in those two words.

Oh Mary, it is so beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing! It just lightened my day!
And it is not just your version of the ideal final, it is what we all dream of. Hope Kripke won’t let us down and will show us some respect :)
And “We got work to do” would also be perfect, wouldn’t it?

That's wonderful. Of the season finales, I think they ended season two the best, because it reminded me of this haiku. I hope Kripke and Co. end things this way, and so many fans including myself will be happy campers. And real life? Hang in there! I'm going crazy with school and work insanity too. Thank goodness we've got new SN episodes coming soon! Keep up the excellent writing, you never fail to impress me with your insights to the boys and this show.

season 5 finale haiku
I love it!! Perfect ending to an awesome show. The words Carry on my Wayward Son gives this idea, and since that seems to be the shows theme song, then here's hoping that's how it goes.

I understand about your busy life. Mine is to with school ending soon and all that entails for me and my students. I can always find time for my favorite show though, so carry on and know that this to shall pass.
