Haiku Challenge Thursday



A group of friends and I did this many years ago when I was toiling away at a desk. We called it Haiku Challenge and someone would start with three words and we would all Haiku our hearts out using those three words in our haiku. It was tricky, consuming and TRES hilarious.

A Haiku is a three line poem with 5 syllables the first line, 7 syllables the second line and 5 again for the last line. My Dad is a BIG Haiku guy, he loves them and many of us have encouraged him to publish them in a book. I do it randomly and rarely but always enjoy the process. It usually starts with an idea or a moment in life I want to capture.

Haiku Challenge participants...just write your haiku in the comments of the relevant post!

Please email me a Haiku Challenge if you would like to be a Guest Challenger. Include the three words and your starting Haiku poem.

Here is this week's challenge Haiku from GUEST CHALLENGER John Novak:

The afternoon stretch
Economic impact talk
my eyes glaze over


Your three words are: The, economic, my.

Clipping coupons for
economic advantage...

Iris I am SO WITH YOU on coupons. I'm pretty sure the only time I touch them after stashing them in my coupon envelope is to throw them into recycling after they are expired. I only find that out when I go to put more in. UGH. THanks for the laugh.
