Rainy day. Whattaya say we totally co-opt Gettysburg Mom’s idea and write some haikus?
It’s easy. The first line contains five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line contains five syllables. Punctuation is up to you. I like mine without. Give it a shot – it’s fun. The topic? Anything spring-like? Rain? Flowers? Gardens? What you see outside?
Here’s the situation over here a/o this morning –
Tomato plants thrive
With frequent daily downpours
Dark skies yield no fruit
The neighbor’s graveyard
Is built not of rocks and bones
Old tires stand vigil
A quart of yogurt
Expiration July Three
Better get a spoon
