Periodically, I enter a Haiku competition which several fellow bloggers participate in. It is called Haiku Monday. Last Haiku Monday was hosted by Karl who won the previous week. Karl picked yours truly as the winner for this week. It is an honor to be picked since the competition is stiff. Participating bloggers have indeed turned into stellar haiku writers.
Part of winning,
Theme for this Haiku Monday: sea cucumber or sea slug... okay, just kidding ...
although the sea slug has inspired many, many Japanese haiku.
The real theme for this Haiku Monday is: SILENCE
(I can't recall if this theme has been done, but if so .. We will do it again.)
a silence haiku example of mine:
Gentle sephyr breeze...
Mountain meadow's grasses sway.
Blissfull, inner quiet.
My Haiku Monday rules: You may enter up to 2 haiku right here. Follow the 5, 7, 5 syllable count rule. I do count .. :) Seasonal references are not required. For those who are haiku clueless, there are several web sites that are decent how-to-haiku sites. Please let me know if you are 'up' at your site, especially if you have posted a visual. Deadline is this upcoming Monday, midnight EST. I will judge your haiku sometime Tuesday evening. Perhaps I can even get some family members to help in the judging. I promise they are all literate and know how to count syllables .... I think. Hopefully, I will be able to post the winner by Tuesday night. So, on that note .....
Oh, and here's something to counteract all that Silence .....
a little bit of funk ... and stay funky .. :)
