Aubrie Cox has come up with a new Yay Words! Project to challenge our haiku minds . . .
"I will take small poems until Saturday, September 15th about the sea and/or thieves/thievery.
As I have with other projects, I will take up to 5, and I’ll at least
take one. I reserve the right to ask you to try again if nothing really
catches my eye, but don’t take it as a brushoff; that really does mean
Theme/What to write about: The sea and/or thieves/thievery.
What form: Haiku, senryu, tanka, kyoka, gogyōka,
renku, haibun, haiga (doodles most welcome!), small stones, short poems
(up to 10 lines), etc. As is art!
How many: As many as you want! I will take as many as 5 and no less than 1.
When: Send them in by Saturday, September 15th
(I will wait until the whole world has reached the 15th); I will post a
PDF on this blog on September 19th (or as some know it, International
Talk Like a Pirate Day).
Where to send: Email to aubriecox [at] gmail [dot] com - put “EVERY ROAD TAKES ME TO THE SEA” in the subject line, if you please."
I hope to see you there! :)
