National Haiku Writing Month 2013

It's on now! Write a haiku-a-day this month -- the shortest month for the shortest genre of poetry. Do it at home by yourself, or join hundreds of folk doing it on-line through the Facebook NaHaiWriMo page here. Michael Dylan Welch is doing daily prompts to spark our senses -- this week was all about food. Here's my highlights:

fantail song . . .
this bird's nest of
angel hair pasta

'pasta' prompt

duck egg blue that look in his eyes

'eggs' prompt

the spice
in his argument--
lightning moon

'spice or spices' prompt

  1. so glad to see these here, Kirsten. I think I missed the first two. . . there are so many to read through on the site!

    1. Thanks so much, Margaret. :-)
