Submitted for Weekly Writing Challenge: Haiku Catchoo!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it

In the words of Ray Bradbury, “Just write every day of your life…”. Your mission is to write five haikus — one for each of the five days leading up to this Friday when we will choose some entries and feature them on Freshly Pressed.

Of course, you can modify this challenge to suit your needs — you can write two haikus one day and three the next, or five all in one day, or one haiku every day from today through Friday — the choice is entirely up to you. If haikus don’t inspire you, you’re welcome to write a paragraph of prose instead. As always, the challenges are meant to be malleable so that they suit your needs.

While traditional haikus tend to focus on things found in nature — anything goes for this haiku challenge. You can write haikus about your dog, your house, your cat, your great aunt Tilly — anything that captures your muse. The object is to try a new form and put some variety into your writing projects. Looking forward to reading your writing!

I decided to build on it each day



Folks around the table

Pass the turkey and gravy

Who wants cranberry sauce?


Crowds in the city

Hot air and larger than life  

A parade and Santa


Football all day long

Watching television nonstop

Will they break to eat?


Halloween, carved grin

Thanksgiving treat, slice of pie

Pumpkins, Carved or dessert


Office is closed today

Ate too much food yesterday

Must go to the gym
