Oh Dog! It’s been SOOOOOO long since we last had a poetry challenge and we are WAYYYYY past due!
So listen up you dogs and cats (and humans too!)- this Friday we’re gonna throw down with some haiku! Are YOU up to the challenge?
Now remember, there are several different form of haiku. The most common to those of us who are not poetry geeks is the standard 3 lines, 5-7-5 form. It goes something like this:
If you want true love,
stop looking for it. Instead,
go adopt a dog.
Now I never claimed to write GOOD haiku, and that’s not what our Poetry Challenge is all about. I don’t impose rules here…. well, except you need to keep it nice (it is my blog and I will delete anything I deem offensive or rude). So if you’re anal about making sure it’s “Right,” you’re probably not gonna like what we got to say.
Well? What are you waiting for? Get to work! Write a haiku…or a limerick…. or any kinda poem you want. Then come back Friday and post it in the comments, and let the rest of us ooh and ahhhh over your creative genius!
I can’t wait! I’m so excited, I better go outside! woo woo woo!
And an update to the WordPress dilemma: Thanks To Tita Buds, I have now changed my settings so you will NOT get emails about subsequent comments UNLESS you check the box saying you want to.
