Haiku #1

Hey Folks,

I don’t do poetry, I’m terrible at it, but when I saw this week’s Daily Post Haiku Challenge, I got the urge to join in (one haiku for the next five days). Maybe you should too? Check out the link at the end of this post.

As for me, I once wrote a haiku that folks actually liked. I have no clue where it is now (buried somewhere in the bowels of my computer), else I’d present it to you, but then I figured I’d keep to the spirit of the challenge and actually come up with one each day of this week.

I also thought it would be cool if I could tell the current short story I’m working on in five haikus. We’ll see.

So, here it goes…

A witch comes to roost

Head high, eyes bright, child at heels

To fight skin-deep hate

    I don’t do poetry either, I don’t even do haiku! Good luck, you’re off to a good start:)

      Thanks! It is definitely a challenge. I am, of course, regretting the impromptu decision…

    Thick as honey, fine as wine
    From the author’s heart

      1. I’m going to put it in my next SCBWI newsletter, I believe.
