The Charming Mischievous Rafa has tossed the 'Ku ball my way which ended up bouncing off my forehead and landing at my feet. That's what happens when you are blindsided. After rubbing my forehead for a bit, I picked up that ball and am ready to play.
So are y'all up for more Haiku Monday fun?
The rules are as follows. Most of you know the drill..
1-season word (kigo) .. if it works ..
1-cutting word (kireji)
17 syllables, 5-7-5
Submit as many as you want. Don't worry about choosing which 2 to submit. Please, feel free to submit photos and or video along with your haiku. It's not a requirement though. Remember, the theme can be implied. The actual word does not have to be used.
The deadline is midnight on Monday, pacific standard time or whenever I wake up on Tuesday.
For those of you who feel inspired to submit a haiku but don't want to otherwise play, just let me know and I will exclude it from judging.
Oh, and, yes, the theme..
The theme is Dance! :-) Animals can dance. The wind can make the flowers dance. Unfortunately, I can pretend to be able to dance. Like many young ladies, I did have years of ballet and it was common in Germany at the time to attend the Tanzschule to learn ballroom dancing. I took all the classes they offered. So, as you see, everybody can shake it up.
Beware, though ... dancing could be harmful to your health .. Grump ..

You high cooing la-dy-hoo.

So, on this note, haiku your hearts out at your own risk and ...
