NaHaiWriMo 2012 Wrap Up

Well, I missed the last couple of days due to illness, but what a month! It was fun and a heckuva challenge to boot. Some of the little poems I wrote over the past month will be revised and tweaked and some will just fade away, but all of them in their own wee way brought me much joy. The community of haiku writers who participated were so supportive of each other and a big thank you to Michael Dylan Welch, the originator and haiku cat-herder of the NaHaiWriMo! Apparently he is collecting many of the haiku written during February for a new book -- don't know if I'll submit (not sure mine are of publishing quality).

Day 23, NaHaiWriMo

slant rain
his toupee
off kilter

by the guillotine

slant rain
a porn star fluffs
her merkin

hehehe...I said merkin

NaHaiWriMo, Day 19

winter's weird language
a single sandal loiters
in the parking lot

NaHaiWriMo, Day 18

late day gusts
an argument rattles
the window
