Blogland Haiku

Elizabeth is encouraging us all to brush off our haiku skills and join in on (newly invented) blogland haiku day, May 11th


From Elizabeth:

as burgeoning spring
demands poetic response
we bloggers will sing

From Wikipedia: Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of three metrical phrases of 5, 7 and 5 (syllables). Haiku typically contain a seasonal reference, and punctuation marks which cause a pause in speech. Haiku in English usually appear in three lines.

I've read that over on Elizabeth's blog and envy anyone that has some form of poetry skills. I totally lack in that area but I am going to enjoy reading others!

To put on my thinking cap
And write a haiku

I would LOVE to do this! How will I remember?! Oh! I'll create my post now and save it under drafts. Thanks for the help. I knew you'd think of something. :)

Sounds like fun! Though, I'm better at limericks. ;)

There once was an anthropologist Throssil...
( I could continue, but it's pretty naughty!)

Have fun.
