Blog Post #38
It’s Haikuesday, and since my friend, Dani has enthusiastically taken up the Haiku Challenge, you will be seeing our poetic attempts every Tuesday on both of our blogs. An added bonus to this friendly competition — no need to stress about what to write on the second day of each week!
To start things off, I would like to share a haiku that I saw many, many times around my social media channels. It’s cute and funny and adaptable to various situations. The poem describes my feelings when I have to get up early on my day off.
no, no, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no, no, no
no, no, no, no, no!!
Oh, and if you follow me on Twitter, you will discover that another friend of mine has taken up this challenge by posting her haiku on Tuesdays via her Twitter account. I tweeted this back this response to her:
The morning sun rises
Dreams drift away on the dew
Want join my Haiku Challenge on Twitter? Just tweet your poem on your Twitter account, add my twitter handle @CateGJo. Don’t forget to include #haikuchallenge!
Haiku is meant to invoke a feeling, and I hope that with all this practice, I will soon be able to convey an emotion or mood with three simple lines of poetry. At any rate, I know I will find writing a Haiku or two every week to be stimulating and enjoyable.
Here is my little poem for this Haikuesday. Enjoy! I invite you to take up the challenge and compose your own haiku every Tuesday!
A bald eagle soars
The river alive with fish
A leaf drifts to ground
