have no clean clothes left
time to get some laundry done
can't for two more weeks
something is not right
when a woman tells right away
she so few clothes has

Wrong use of 'rebuff'
Get Cambridge dictionary
Then better haiku

Re: Got a haiku on your Swiss experience? Post it here!

beautiful alpine
view, right outside my window
afternoon nap time

cow bells sound just like
weird swiss jazz - out of sych and
a bit discordant

i have too much time
on my hands, if i can sit
and write dumb haiku

in switzerland i
have to defrost the blasted
refrigerator
