Need Some CREATIVE INSPIRATION in Your Life? Try 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 using the three words of the week in the comments below!

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

This week's Haiku is:

big pending birthday
anti wrinkle cream tells all
i admit i care.

Your Three Words are: Birthday, Tells, I.

A sassy friend sent this link to me, it is "Dirty Haiku", so you have been warned. *still blushing*

My birthday rings and
tells me, "I have some bad news
for you. You're older."
