Writer’s Workshop: My Attempt at a Haiku
Mama Kat’s Losin’ It
Write a Haiku that describes what you love about an ordinary day
Honestly, I usually choose a prompt that is easy for me to do. This week I decided to do something that is much more of a stretch. I can’t remember the last time I wrote a Haiku other than Girl Scouts when I was trying to get a badge. Boy did I wish I still had my book so I could share with you my mad Haiku skills. This time, I had to call up my dear friend, Google, for some pointers. When I say pointers, I mean, a total how to. Sadly, the best Haiku advice I got was from KidZone.com. What does that tell you when it comes to my poetry writing level? Can we say, DUH? So here we go. No laughs.
Endless questions why.
Excitement. Door opens near six.
Toothless grin goodnight.
I’m a poet and don’t didn’t even know it. Didn’t say I was a good one, but now I’m published. Online. You know that I’ll be getting some calls for book deals now because it was that good. LOL. Seriously, great to branch out and try something different and definitely harder than my typical sarcasm.
