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:

Oh crap! I forgot!
Poetry left the building.
Who blogs to haiku?

Your three words are: forgot, the, who.

Let's hear your haiku!

Who wants some pizza?
The cravings begin to mount.

I "forgot" 'The Who.'

No. I never knew 'The Who.'

Thank goodness, safe. Whew!
