I got a great email on Friday with a link to some writing prompts. To paraphrase the email said, thanks for blogging it keeps me entertained….here is a link (to writing prompts.) The email if from a dear friend who I don’t get to see very often and made me smile.
The link is fantastic, in fact it will email me prompts. The one for yesterday was “Sum up your year, via HAIKU”
Now Haiku is actually one of my favorite forms of poetry and I have several from the 80’s that were published however I hadn’t written any lately.
This was harder than it sounds, not the haiku but the sum up my year. There need to be more adjectives to describe the year. Seventeen syllables just doesn’t seem to cover it. However……
A photo for each day
Hormones on a tilt a whirl
Several part time jobs
Long and cold Winter
Summer weather for a week
early and cold Fall
Living in poverty
and living within my means
Clearly I couldn’t write just one to sum up the year so I jotted down three before bed. I also texted the challenge out to a couple of friends, the only one I heard back from sent me this….
A year of many changes
most for the better.
Thanks for the email and link -br Miss you tons!
